Help Rear Seat Install on 1994 D90

I'm the new owner of a 94 ST D90 (white) and the previous owner didn't use the rear seat. The owners manual doesn't show exactly how the seat goes in. It appears I have most of what I need already attached to the truck, but I'm not so sure about a couple of things.

First, it looks as though the seat is attached to the floor anchors and held in place with cotter pins --- but they didn't come with the truck. Is that the case and can someone take a photo to show me just how "beefy" the cotter pins are supposed to be so that I can hunt down the right size from the hardware store?

Second, from what I can tell, the seat is prevented from tipping forward by the "stops" attached to the wheel wells. I just want to be sure that's the case and that I've got the seats configured safely for the kids to ride in. If possible, could someone shoot a photo and/or explain if this is correct. To me, it looks pretty straightforward, but I want to be sure that the seat is safe and installed properly. Thanks

Go to your local Ace Hardware and look for two hairpin cotters. Use washers on the inside so the seat does not rub the cotter.
The right side of the seat has a lever that when pushed down prevents the seat from tumbling forward.

The LR seat installation instructions are attached.

It sounds like you have it correct. If you search around there are a bunch of threads with pics on the subject already. Those side anchors keep it from tilting forward when the seat is in the regular position for seating.

Thanks, guys. I had come across the 1995 instructions, but wasn't sure if they applied to 1994. I hadn't thought about the washers so will definitely grab a couple of those.

You'll find out over time that these trucks really didn't change alllll that much from 1983 to today, so 1994 vs. 1995 will not be all that different. The benches escpecially, are interchangeable between 1994-97.
