'98 Grand Am seats are not a direct bolt in to a 91 YJ. please adjust the list.

I think it was covered earlier in this thread, but there are slight differences in the seat mounts between the early YJ's (up to 91) and the later (92 and up) ones.

Just for reference though, I have 98 grand am seats in my 93, and they were a direct bolt in.

I tried using the pontac sliders, but they would not bolt to the jeep risers.
I used the jeep sliders, and those bolted directly to the pontiac seats.

I am jealous. I have cutting, drilling, grinding, beating, and bolts to buy.

If you can get them in, the grand am seats are quite comfortable, and they were a great improvement over my worn out stock seats.
The only thing that I would change (and it's in the plans when I get time) is that the grand am seats angle back a little more than I like. I'm planning to cut about 1 to 2 inches out of the front of the rizers to get the seats to set a little more flat.

I cut my stock seats out with a sawzaw. I will make the grand am seats work if I want to drive it again.

thanks for the tip.

Muddy - I recently did a seat swap with some Cherokee seats into my 94 YJ and it left me wishing I had a sunroof to poke my head out. I felt like Dino on the Flintstones. Before I seek out some Grand Am or Cavalier seats, are they much higher than the stock seats? I knew about the slight recline to the rear but does the front of the seat jam you into the steering wheel?

Well, my stock seats were well worn (almost no foam left at all), so I'm really not shre how much taller these would be complared to a stock seat that is in better condition. However, I'm 5'10" tall, and my head clears the sound bar by a couple inches. As far as the steering wheel goes, I had swapped in a smaller wheel before I swapped the seats, so I don't have any issues there. but I guess it could be a little tight with the stock wheel. If it would help you out, I can take some measurements, like from the foor to the top of the seat, then you could stack some phone books or something in your stock seats to get an idea of how much higher they would be.

It's more than a slight recline. My seats are now in and yes very comfortable. I am 5'8'' and the grand am seats were leaning back so far I couldn't operate the petals too well. I put 7 washers and raised the rear, I could have gone another 3+ washers but its OK on the 7.

USE the YJ sliders. Grand AM sliders were so high my head would have been able to hit the cage. and I couldnt fit my legs under the steering wheel. check out my build thread it has all the pic of what I am saying

Muddy - I would appreciate the measurement. I'm starting to get a little leery about paying for some seats to find it will raise me too high. I am 6'1" with monkey arms and legs so the leg room might me okay!

aje3721,

Here's what I got for measurements,

I placed a leval on the front edge of the seat, and measured to the floor (flat part, just in front of where the floor steps up for the seat risers). From the floor to the top, front edge of the seat, is 15-3/4". And the lowest part of the seat (at the back, where you butt would be) is 5-1/4" lower than the front.
I have a pic of where I measured from, but left the camera in the car, I'll go get it in a little bit, and post up the pic.
