    Can anyone provide pictures and measurements of where the brackets go in an 1987 Suburban for the 3rd seat? I've got a 3rd seat that came with the vehicle but it doesn't have any of the brackets to attach to. Apparently Chevrolet does not offer the parts any longer and my usual go to place, lmctruck.com, does not offer them. Sitting a ruler in a couple locations next to the bracket would help me fabricate them (or if there is some place online I can order them even better).

    If you could offer measurements to properly locate them on the floorboard it would be appreciated and the pictures would be a visual aid. I'd be happy to take pictures and write up a small how to for posting on the web. I'll be looking at a few salvage yards on my next trip to town (I'm in a rural area).

    Let me see if I can get a pic later. My 86 has the brakets in the floor. But are you looking for pics of those or the part on the seat itself?

    No, was hoping 84fiero123 would offer up something. I haven't been in a huge hurry but need to do some serious work to my 98 so I need something that can transport my whole family.

    As an aside I couldn't log into the chevysuburbanclub.com homepage, it kept giving me something like: The administrator needs to add you to the whitelist. I've never had that occur before some I'm guessing something strange on your end. The weird part is once I was forwarded to gmtruckclub.com I could log in.

    Sorry Dude.


    I did go look at the 86 we have out back. But it is full of parts for cars that needed to get out of the garage.

    Then I remembered when I took the old seat out I put a new mat down and covered all the mounts.

    It may be spring before I can get out there and get some pictures.


    If anyone wants me to do something, keep on me, I forget things as soon as I move.

    Again SORRY DUDE !

    I have the rear carpet out of my dad's 89 Suburban that we are fixin' to sell. I will try to get some detailed pictures this weekend and post them up.
