Bucket Seat Swaps What are you running ??

I put 60/40 mid 90's leather Buick LeSsbre seats in my 67 and they worked great. I'm looking to go sportier with my 94 full size GMC standard cab. I like the look of the late 90's Camaro buckets, but I don't know if they would be to low? What buckets are you running? I'm not wanting to go aftermarket. I want something I can get at the junkyard. Thanks

Re: Bucket Seat Swaps What are you running ??

I seen a truck posted on here a while back that had seats from an 04-06 GTO with the head rests removed, it looked really good. I thought it looked so good that I occasionally look for them on craigslist, but they are expensive or gone pretty quick.

I picked up a pair of Tahoe buckets.

I found a set of buckets out of a 1993 Chevy Blazer. Awesome thing is they bolted right to the seat tracks. Same spacing.

You put the blazer buckets on the tracks from your bench?

i had the 40/60 split bench, so i had to find 1 set track to make a bucket set. and yes the spacing is perfect. most gm's from that era all had the same seat track width. gontiac grand prix/am camaro, firebird, tahoe, suburban. and a secret. the chevy hhr ss bucket seats fit almost perfect and are freaking sexy.

Do you have any pictures? Also was it a big deal for the extra holes? I'm about to install the Tahoe buckets as soon as I get some new carpet.

I think I'm going to look for some Blazer or Trailblazer buckets. I just installed a Hurst QuarterStick last weekend.

92-99 Pontiac Bonneville seats are a bolt into these trucks on the truck risers, and are super comfortable.
