Re: Rocking seat

Check the studs welded on the floor panel that the seat frame bolts to. When I bought my car new, I shimmed the seat by putting washers under the seat frames. The washers caused the floor to crack around the studs where they were welded. I had to put new bolts through the floor sheet metal.

Thank Injuneer, I'll look at that but I think the problem is in the seat rail itself. I know that C5 Corvettes have had a similar problem and they had to be fixed with adding nylon bushings.

Re: Rocking seat

Having the same issue floor bolts tight but get a slight pivot rocking going on feels like the inner framing of the seat is coming loose if that makes sense
