I put in a SwivelsRUS passenger seat swivel and had to toss the 1/4" spacers they include and replace them with 3/8" to get the swivel to clear the Car seat loop on the back of the seat base. I suspect you could grind the loop off and get the seat to sit flat on the frame - I don't remember. I'd check, but my van is sitting at the dealer waiting for parts

Washers/spacers are only needed for the power 10-way seats.

I just cut the loop off.

I'm gonna cut the loop off too. What's the rise over stock on the non-power seats if you do that?

Very nice informative build blog btw!

My upfitter installed it with no washers/spacers, just trimmed plastic covers to allow seat to swivel.

...but are they the swivelRus version?

Makes you wonder why, if they are both the same, their website would say they are out of one but not the other - or even why they make the distinction.

Tomorrow my wife and I go around to all the FORD dealers in our area to investigate the feel of the seats and to submit a buy order for bids.

I plan to order (21H) pewter leather 10-way both sides believing I'll be able to convert both of them to swivel. I hope I haven't overlooked something after reading the various descriptions of what people have gone through. i.e. not something that prevents leather 10-ways from swiveling on driver side that doesn't afflict manual seat the same way.
