we've had difficulty with installing our century 2000 ste children's car seat in our ford f150 supercab pickup truck. following all instructions for both century's manual and the ford manufacturer's manual... we've found them ford lacking in information about installing of our rear facing child's car seat. following instructions, we placed the seat rear facing in the middle back seat. while the seat does not move at all side to side... there is definitely too much movement vertically would we be involved in a crash. we have talked with tennesse ford motor company in johnson city, tn whose only response was to talk to a state trooper. where can we find information about the proper installation of a convertible car seat in our beloved ford pickup? if additional equipment is required, where can we find this information?
