Need some assistance here fellow Cherokee owners.
I am converting a botched Club Seating to original forward seating configuration, but that is a lengthy article in itself for another time. Although, should anyone have any questions or desire info on this project on my 1977 Lance, please email me at [email protected]. I have corresponded with Piper to the tune that they have become snippy in their responses, but I did get some nice as-built drawings from them.
The issue here is the 3rd and 4th seat rear leg hardware. Mine are a pin/peg device that connects to a spring hardware receptacle on the floorboard and Piper says that this steel and neoprene washer arrangement is incorrect for this type installation. Attached are two photos should anyone have this type hardware installed, please either send a photo or just tell me if you have/don't have the washers installed on your seat leg.

Thanks all.
I am a newbie member, as of tonight.
