For anyone thinking about this an fyi, my 97 Silverado has the 3rd door but the passenger seat still slides and tilts forward like a regular extended cab seat would.

Re: The Definitive 67-72 Seat Swap Guide Thread ....

The pic is my junkyard find from yesterday. From 94 Silverado extended cab (Well, what was left of it). It's going in my 72 K10 in place of the factory bench seat. For now, the gas tank is still in the original location behind the seat.

I've got 2 questions:

1. In this thread, I've seen the seat mounted in 2 locations. With the front of the mounting bracket on top of the floor hump and also just behind the hump. Why did you choose your particular mounting location? Pros and cons?

And
2. For those who have mounted this split bench, did you have to modify the inside bracket on the passenger half of the bench? And Did you mount that bracket on the floor hump or just behind it?

Thanks.

Re: The Definitive 67-72 Seat Swap Guide Thread ....

I liked using the stock outer mounts, then spacers for the rear and middle. Why, I liked the slightly higher seating position than mounting it to the flat floor behind the hump. I used some 3/4" to 1" pipe adapters as spaces. They seemed to be correct height. I had to play with washers for the inner seat legs of the seats till I got something right.

Eventually I made spacers out of steel pipe. I used 1/4" thick still plating for underside mounts where I drilled new holes for either the seats and seat belts.

I’m running a set of 88 Chevy truck buckets and need to lower the existing brackets. I know some have done this, any pics? I want to do about 3” drop
