I obtained a set of suspension seats intending to retro fit to an NL. The seat squabs bolt onto the top of the suspension mechanism, while standard seats go all the way down to the floor runners. The runners are the same for both kinds of seat. Have you got both seats and suspension units? If so you should be able to unbolt your present seats from the runners and fit the suspension set, unless things were different in the 90 to 95 pajs.

The Gen1 suspension seats are simple. The suspension unit bolts to the floor with a four (sometimes 6) rectangle pattern. The floor is flat. The Gen2 mounting holes are at different levels and do not line up with each other. A new bracket would have to be made to hold a Gen1 suspension unit to the floor. I'd be surprised if a Gen2 Seat would fit the suspension. There are Gen2 suspension systems -- quite rare.

Sounds like those '91 suspension-seats are from a gen1 , not an NH gen2 from later that year.
As they are such a different design, it'll be less work trying to find bouncy-bases from a gen2, especially as the gen1 cabin was taller & the seating-position was further from the floor! Unless you're a short bloke, you'll need a permanently open sunroof, or else you might end up creating one!

Usually factory sun-roofs reduce headroom, but I'm taller than you & I fit inside comfortably even with the factory pop-up sunroof, which is what couldn't be said about the std-roof height in a Delicia.

My NH has the bouncy-bases & I've acquired some racing-seats for more support, but I can fit them by using some square-tubing to lift them that extra bit of height to where the std ones are, & also to clear the suspension-base mechanism (see thread I posted earlier this arvo;
http://www2.pajeroclub.com.au/forum/...ad.php?t=17100 ).

However, there's one thing I did notice about gen2 seats, mine has lumbar-support adjustment, whereas you lose that mechanism if your seat has fold-down arm-rests! Though I don't know whether that feature was on the gen1?

I have found a guy that can get base plate and change the runners without touching my original seats and without drilling new holes in the floor.the only thing is he wants $500 per seat. so with the cost of the seats it will cost around $1200.so any ideas if it is money well spent as I have no idea what a set of new seats would cost plus not knowing how good suspension seats are.

$500? Outrageous. I started on a bracket for mine, but have decided to hold off and trade my Gen2 for a Gen1 -- anyway, the bracket fabrication would take an hour for a fabricator and $10 worth of steel.

I was making mine out of steel from the local welder's trash bin, a drill press and angle grinder. Rocket science it ain't, but it will take careful measurements and probably some mock-ups for fitting.

I currently have the same project planned for my 94.
I was lucky enough to obtain the bouncy seats and have a spare set of sets that were in the car before I put the ones the ones with lower back support in.
Was thinking of cutting the base of the original seat to get the proper mounts and shortening the bouncy base as far as possible to keep the head room.
Some flat steel to support the welds for the new seat console and all should be fine.
If you want I'll take some pictures and document the process if I'm successful.
Also if someone needs seats .... LOL
