    I just purchased a set of VERY nice 90 seats out of a K5 to go in my 85 K5. The problem is they have completly different mounting. The 85 uses 2 bolts for each "leg" in the front and the 90 seats use 1 bolt per "leg" in the front.

    Any mounting ideas or pics of newer seats in slightly older rigs???

    can you just unbolt the sliders from each seat and swap?

    Well the seat sliders are trashed and the base for the older seats dont jump forward, they lean forward.
