    Cadillac Eldorado/Deville bucket seat mounting kits for sale!

    I just finished building some bucket seat mounting brackets to mount 1992-2002 Cadillac Eldorado seats in tri-5 cars. I had been requested to build a set of mounts like the ones I have in my Nomad by another member, and couldn't justify building just one set.....so I built 8 sets, sold some of them, and still have a couple that are not spoken for.

    I think these bucket seats are some of the best available for our cars, since they're a little larger than many others and the backs tilt forward as required in a 2-door to get into the rear seat. They are typically 12-way power with heat. I know these mounts work with 1999-2002 seats, and I believe they work with that entire generation of Eldorados from 1992 but I can verify if you have some. I also believe these would work for the same vintage Cadillac DeVille seats installed in a 4-door (seats don't tilt forward). It's possible they might work with other seats that have tracks on 15" centers.

    The parts are CNC laser cut, TIG welded, and all Grade 8 hardware is included. The outer mounts bolt to the stock seat mounting holes. I provide installation instructions with the kit. Some minor fab work is required, such as minor modification of your seat tracks to remove some of the stock pieces, and re-drilling of some holes. The inner mount needs to be custom-fit to your floor, but that's not a difficult job. For safety, I use two bolts in front on each track, and the inboard rear bolt goes through the floor and the floor brace. Remember that your seatbelt is anchored on your seat at the rear inboard corner.

    The kit is $295 plus shipping. I will have them on eBay too. Let me know if you have any questions or e-mail me at Lnobi53@yahoo.com

    Here's what the kit looks like (click for larger image):

    Can you tell me the height from the floor to the top of seat front. I have 2009 Tahoe bucket seats and they are too high, very thick seat foam

    IMO most truck seats are going to be too tall. I've heard of Tahoe seats being used, but aren't they 4-door seats? How do you get into the back? The seat backs need to fold forward and they typically don't on a 4-door seat.

    From the bottom of the seat mount (raised floor) to the top of the bottom seat cushion is about 10" at the front center, but my seat isn't all the way down. I think it's up about 1" or so from bottom.

    joer5000, read my previous post, as I think I answered your question.

    BTW, I don't have any of these mounts left since I built 8 sets of them and sold them all. I would need an order of 3-4 sets before I build any more.

    Guys, I now have Eldorado/Deville bucket seat mount kits available again. It took me a few months to get a new CNC Laser part supplier online but I now have all the parts and I'm putting kits together. I re-designed them slightly to make them easier to build but they are essentially the same as in the pics above. I did slot the rear mounting holes to account for tolerances in the floor mounts as suggested by one customer.

    BTW, I'm willing to custom-build some other seat mounts if I can make them work with my parts. Particularly interested in seeing if late model GTO seats will work if anyone has dimensions for the seat tracks.

    Kits are now $249.95 plus $17 shipping anywhere in the continental US. Will quote shipping to Canada, Hawaii, or Alaska.
