    I have heard that the newer Tahoes, Escalades and the like have seats that will work but it was my understanding that you'd just use the seat with your existing floor hardware. Hopefully someone will chime in and set us straight.

    Just need to check if the newer seats are bolted to the floor brackets, or welded.

    Cars, the interchange with other GM stuff was/is easy. Unbolt the seat from the tracks, and put the new seat on the tracks that were in your vehicle. Apparently GM didn't change the seat pattern much. At worst, you'd have to fab up some brackets.

    I'd probably stick with GM vehicles if I were trying to find an easy interchange. What about Camaro seats or something similar?

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?
