That depends - Gen I or II ?
Maybe it does not matter, but I know there is a box for the air bags under there - '95 - '05.
Winnie will chime in - I am sure.

Current these do not work on the drivers side -- I'm working on a design for the driver swivel but I need to do some R&D before it is ready for prime time.

I should have asked him what year his Van is - because the Swivel Mount will work on Gen I - '85 - '94.
There are no Vent passageways, hard Air Bag box - just the power seat control wiring connector.

I've tried to keep my eyes open but haven't spotted a solid answer on middle row. Do these work there on later vans (2003 LT in my case) with GM factory "captain's chairs" without raising seat height or tilting the seat forward?

I have a feeling they'll lift 2nd row captains seats as I know the middle pedestals are a bit shorter than the fronts.

Give me a PM and we can try to figure out if it'll work at all. I think the rails are also different -- but I'm not entirely sure.

The rails are straight instead of curved and the base is approx 1" shorter in the 2nd row buckets. The differences would only have a minor effect on the swivel base. You can swap front 1st row and rear 2nd row buckets.

Thanks WinnieVan and MI_Ghost. I see what you mean about the heights and track curvature. I'm not ready to bump the mids up ~1". Dont know why any of the passenger seats have a slope to them, either, though I get why the driver's seat does. Even the power seat doesn't have an independent height adjustment.

Only GM knows why they chose curved seat bases - and riveted seat tracks... and let's be honest.. they probably don't even know why they did it either.

The Express/Savana base is flat... with bolted sliders -- even the model years that overlapped the Astro/Safari!
