I noticed today when i fold the seat back forward there are 2 rubber stops still on the back part of the passenger seat. The seat back sits on these rubbers when put back in the upright position.

The rubbers are still present on the passenger side but missing from the drivers side. I want to replace all 4 rubbers if they are still available.

Anyone know if they are available?

Steve-Wonkey Donkey, I recommend you do not buy them! It's another Scott Drake reproduction part that doesn't fit!!! The 4 per seat original plastic/nylon spacers are round! Drake's POS are rubber and 2 are round...too tall!!! 2 are oval...WTHell! When installed you won't be able to latch your seat back, ask me how I know. 

I got some nice stainless steel radiator support rubber bumpers from Drake but only half of the needed hardware comes with it! Bloody Hell!!!

One trick I learned was to cut them down to increase the backward lean in the seat. I'm tall with long arms so it made for a more comfortable reach to the steering wheel (factory setup had me too close to it). When my wife drove the car, I dropped a couple plumbing PVC 3/4" caps over the spacers which positioned the seat perfect for her. I've also stacked large washers to get the lean I wanted.

I used the SD brand ones, they are the same height as the originals when stacked together, but they don't work the same. I am using them with no problems so far.

Thanks for everyones input

The 4 rubbers are still there on passenger side.

The 2 on the drivers upright back of the seat are still there.

Its the 2 on the drivers side bottom of the seat that are missing.

I will purchase the set and just use the two needed but i will remove passenger side ones and use those as a template to make the new ones the same height.
