    I need to redo my front seats. Options are to rebuild. Replace... Or? I like the way the feel as I am no small man. Is there an elternative that is similar or some place I can get these seats new? Avoiding down time as it's my work truck

    Or??

    If you like the 60/40 cloth bench setup, you can buy the upholstery to redo it from LMC truck. It comes in the correct colors and patterns. I believe the foam is moulded to the fabric as the original was too. I figured out the supplier that makes it for them, however they do not sell direct to the public. The prices LMC wants for it arent too bad though. I have a 60/40 setup in my 94. I really like it compared to buckets or a straight bench. The R&R of the seat upholstery on these is pretty easy. Hardest part is removal and reinstall of the seats to and from the truck. Its probably a half day job start to finish.

    You can get nice 60/40's out of a ton of 90's-00 cars.

    I was thinking of swapping in seats from a '95 or up truck, those fit right? I don't think they'd look too out of place in my '89... Question though, did they make the '95 and up seats in Silverado/SLE trim level as a bench seat or were they all 60/40 types aside from base or lower level trim?

    A lot of people say that they like the comfort of the 88 to 94 sats more and the material as well. Also not available in garnet red like my truck has

    There is a whole thread on alternative seats that has been a "sticky" thread so it'll be at the top of the regular posts. Crap ton of info in that thread. Would be well worth a look.
