Asked by May 31, 2011 at 01:34 PM about the 1987 GMC Suburban

Question type: Car Customization

My Fiancee and I have 7 Kids so we need all 9 Seats.  We are looking at a 87 Suburban with a Diesel motor but it comes with buckets and only seats 8.  The Bench seat would get us up to 9.  Can I switch them out do I need to make special brackets?

find a front bench from an older model. a buddy of mine has an 86 with a 350 and a 4 bolt main. light weight crank and a new cam with an edlebrock intak manifold. idk about the carb but its a 4 barrel. he had a bench seat and swapped them out for leather buckets from an 88 i think. he just needed to drill 2 holes for each seat for the inner side of the brackets. it should b easy to install
