How hard is it to put Sidekick seats in a Samurai? What do you have to do to make them fit?

Re: Sidekick seats in a Sami...

I've done it. Not hard at all if you have a cut-off wheel on a die grinder and a welder.

Re: Sidekick seats in a Sami...

I've just done mine a week or so ago....used front seats off of the late 90's two door Pontiac Sunfire. Good seats IMHO and the fitting was a breeze. The pass. one required drilling only two holes. On the driver side I had to rip off the "shelves" that the OEM seat was bolted onto (why did Suzuki put them in to begin with???) and drill four new holes.

I like this setup very much so far (no more broken springs poking my a*s), it slides fwd and aft, reclines and folds down as prescribed, hehehehe

It took me maybeeee three hours (and four Molsons :-) to have all this done.

Hope it helps

Re: Sidekick seats in a Sami...

The shelf thing you speak of under the drivers seat is to keep junk from rolling under the drivers feet and not stuck in the pedals causing a wreck or something. We all know how these things just jump up when parked in the driveway and turn over. If anyone is interested and will be at the melt, I have tracker LSi seats in my truck, come look me up on the hill under the big white canopy (if K Smart hasn't sold the damn thing)!

Re: Sidekick seats in a Sami...

I used GEO Storm seats myself.Cut off the welded on seat tracks and drilled a couple of holes to mount to the sami seat tracks.2 hours in the shop and about 2 more hours at the junk yard looking and checking before I bought them.The seat rails are in the same place and the colors match.

Re: Sidekick seats in a Sami...

i used the Summit racing seats with a little extra padding inthe seat, and all it took was four pieces of 1" channel and a couple of steel plates. the really hug your butt when your bouncing around and did it all for under $150.00 and 3 hours time.

the harder i try to be gooder the worser i get

Re: Sidekick seats in a Sami...

I put tracker seats in my '86. I cut the entire front support down to the tubular frame, and cut the rear supports down to one inch. Welded 2" square box for the front support and 1" X 2" box for the rear. I have another set of seats for my '88 - this time I'm going to cut down as before, but use 1" X 2" box in front, and flat stock in back (I wanted to raise my '86 sets by one inch, but I think I raised them 2" - a little too much, but now my wife can see over the hood). I used a ripped up sammy seat frame as a template to position mounting holes for the sammy sliding tracks (much simpler than the tracker/kick). Unless you mount your tracks pretty far forward, you will find the new seats too close to the dash. The passenger seat was especially cramped, but I found under the carpet another set of mounting holes further back. This works fine for me, because I removed my rear seat long ago. If you want to get in and out of the back seat, it will be a problem. If you want more info, email me as my mistakes are still pretty fresh in my mind. I may be able to send you some pix.
