Hey, welcome to the forum! They should just bolt right in unless your car has a full bench that only has outer seat mounts, then you're going to have to do some modifications. What type of seats do you have currently?

Hey welcome! since you have a full bench, you will have to do some mods in order to put in split 50/50. You will need a donor car, any b body from 77-96 will work, you will need those floor pan mounts.
