Ok, here's where I measured from on the floor,


And here's a quick paint sketch of how I set the level on the seat to get the measurements,


Again, these are 1998 Pontiac Grand Am seats, in a 1993 YJ, using the stock jeep seat sliders.

Man Muddy, those paint sketches look better than my stock seats! Thanks so much for taking the time. I'll be able to get an idea of how they sit from that!

I just scored a set of Hyundai Tiburon seats from the salvage yard 2 days ago for $43.00 and will be doing a swap probably over the weekend. I'll post up some pics of the install.

There were two reason that I really like these seats:
  1. They fit like a glove when you sit in them and there is a ton of support.
  2. They are already black and grey to match my black and grey Jeep.

Here is a stock pic of what they look like:

I got these seat from Murray's (now O'Reilly's) for $99 after rebate.

I bought a spare set of seat brackets off ebay for $40. On the driver's seat I cut a wedge out of the brackets and welded them. The seat was too high and pitched backwards too much. I did not do anything to the passenger side seat. you sit a little higher and the rider is reclined like a pimp but its the passenger so who cares lol. Its not terrible.

The holes for the bolts were way off so I made an adapter plate to mount them. If I have a header at 60mph, the adapters might not hold the seat in place the way I hope but buckled it should be fine.

I am going to take some measurements of my wife's 2000 Malibu (Olds Alero should be the same) seats this weekend. They look like they will sit a little lower and are a little wider than the Cavalier seats. Might be an option for guys who are looking for an option in that direction if the bolt patterns are close enough.

Hey rustywrangler, this is a great write up! I have tried two sets of seats that I have lying around, and they seem to sit too high on the front.

I clicked on the link that you have, and my only question is this;
With all these direct bolt-in seats, did they require the use of the YJ sliders?

"...either directly bolt into the stock sliders/risers or, with minor modification..."

I do not have anything from a YJ as far as seats go except for the risers.
Thanks.

the Stock YJ sliders are compact and not very tall. Other vehicle sliders can be taller which is a bad thing. Use the shorter sliders if at all possible. I am 5' 7'' 175 and could not fit under the steering wheel when I test fitted the grand am sliders.

Thanks for the info.
I'm not much bigger than you, well maybe a few lbs. heavier.
I do not have the YJ sliders, just the risers that tilt forward.
I used a set of seats from a Nissan ???car. They were VERY comfy, the sliders were rather short, but the overall cushion size was the problem. They were taller and deeper. Unfortunately, the risers are integrated with the adjustable seat back and have an attachment system that would require a rather "involved" modification. I also have a set of Poly Racing Seats that my wife bought for me a couple years ago. They too are too tall at the front to permit easy access under the steering column.
