Where did you order your springs from? USA1 or LMC?

The springs came from USA1. Not too difficult to swap out.

So what did you do with the old foam from the 79?

I ended up using it as-is. I still plan to find a full-foam seat with a folding back at some point.

This is how the 74 I had turned out, it is a full foam also. I just found out, it is a seat that is specific to the GMC, because of the chrome pieces at the hinge. I did not know that.

Now that you have a tilt seat with the full foam, post a pic, when you get it swapped out.

It was a pleasure to me you and your wife.
