    Ok guys carpets almost in driver side seat is installed and I ran into a small hiccup that I hope someone can help me with. I have manual seat base on passenger side and took it off to take to my seat guy. I have it back together but for the life of me can't remember where the single big spring reattaches. Any help will be appreciated.

    What I'm looking for is where the spring on the floor goes or hooks up. Didn't see the click below LOL yea cant find a picture anywhere of a seat underside. Just the electric ones

    Just need to clean up wheel or put in new one and get the radio changing out to double din and thanks it turned out the way I hoped. Still may throw some opal gray floor matts to break it up a little more.

    Well done, that's a fine looking interior. If you're looking for a replacement steering wheel I have heard good things about the LMR FR500 steering wheels.

    I don't have a first hand review since I found a stripped down black one for mine that was $10 in the junk yard lol

    That’s kind of the direction I’m looking with a gray airbag. Was looking to see if my favorite salvage yard would have a stock one but no dice. Still trying to figure out headlight needs but the ones I got are workin for now. Just found a water drip coming from the cross member so think water pump may be in order.

    Drivers. Passengers is good to go just needs a little cleaning. Drivers I tried to clean but just to much in the grooves.

    The spring in question goes to the back of the left rail in the picture , there may or may not be a hole in the rail near the back of it , then it goes across to the lever , there should be a hole in the lever to connect it to , so that when you pull the lever to adjust your seat , both sides have an equal pull if that makes sense to you. I also lube the tracks with white lithium grease to ensure the seat slides back and forth easily
