S-10 Pickup

We operate a fleet of these S-10 and sonoma vehicles. The rear mounting studs for the bench seat are breaking out the sheet metal(due to metal fatigue?) the left side mount is right above the left frame rail. The brake and fuel lines are on top of this frame. We first noticed this condition 10/30/2000, and have found the same condition on at least 12 more vehicle, 1996 and 1997. I think the newer ones will also fatigue in time. I have digital photo's avail if requested.
