    does anyone know if the seats out of an older S10 will swap in to the K5 sliders? or what other seats at the junkyard i could look for that would work?

    I'd be interested to know this as well. My seats are RAGGED and the wife wont ride till the interior is at least decent. I bought the carpet on ebay. Saved about $50 this way. However I have yet to see factory seat replacement material. LMC truck sells highback bucket covers for $225 each. Very expensive when my local junkyard will sell any seat they have for $50 for the set. The blazers in the yard have already been stripped clean. So I'd be interested to see what will fit on the existing rails. I looked into swaping out the entire buckets but you loose the ability for anyone that is not a gymnast to get into the back seat!

    when i do a search on car-part.com for fullsize blazer seats, the only thing that comes up is s10 seats.
    and you can only use the seats from an extended cab or a 2 door s10 blazer, the 4 doors dont fold forward. but the bottoms look like they might work if you just swapped the sliders.

    Any seat will actually fit with a little fabrication of some brackets. A person just wants to be sure that they flip forward to give a guy access to the back. This is experience of working for a custom upolsrty shop about 3 days a week for several years. I have metro seats in mine.

    I look for Suburban seats. They are pretty much the same. Yes, there is a lot of confusion with parts suppliers and S10 vs K5 Blazers.

    actually those corbeaus are the most comfortable seat i have EVER sat in... that includes normal chairs... pimp leather executive office chairs.. my dads layzee boy... you name it. I am constantly amazed at how good it feels to sit in them. I have road tripped with em too.. no problems at all. Every persons back n backside is different, but for me these things are a god-send.

    one thing to note... i have a relatively narrow butt... and my seats are just right. If you're a bigger guy, but you want a similar seat, corbeau makes the Baja SS "ultra" which is the exact same seat, just wider for those sportin the ghetto booty. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    This is not what you asked but I found at 1aauto.com you can get factory seat covers for both front seats and the back seat for $250. You cant beat that in my opinion. Thats what Im going to do. This is assuming you have the seats already and they are just torn up.

    i bought my replacement carpet from them. i have the seats. the back and passenger is in like mint condition (the previous owners must never had passengers).
    the drivers has alot of wear and a tear in the seat.
    ive been looking for either 1 good matching seat(does anyone know if i can swap the bottoms if i only find another passenger seat?) or if not a pair of seats and i will have to live with it not matching the rear seat.
    but i will check out 1aauto.com
    thanks

    Pick up a good pair of seats out of anything in the junkyard and fab up brackets. I used the seats out of my 91 Mitsu Pajero I had in Japan on my K5. Their pretty comfy, and the driver seat has a suspension system almost like a Kenworth driver seat. I almost used some Black Leather seats from an Expedition. Until I thought about how all the power options/heat would'nt like getting muddy and wet. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    If you want to look at a variety of aftermarket ones, try www.seatsource.com - I bought my Flofit's from them a few years ago...........great seats but to be honest the most comfortable I've ever sat in and road tripped in are the factory ones in my 91 Burb - try to find a set of them at a boneyard - have padded armrests on both sides.

    Where did you get your seats from? And if you don't mind how much where they?

    well i finally had gotten a seat, i searched all the Pick-N-Pulls, but none of them had my year or similar K5, so i started eyeing the new cavalier seats, but anything i found was either 4 door or 2 door seats that were broke.
    i went to a place thats a "Recycling Center" called A-Reliable in Blue Island, Illinois. originally didnt go there thinking they would be astronomical, but they wanter $75 for it(which i figured wasnt bad, i would have matching seats, and if i were to buy a pair it would be about the same anyway).
    any tips or suggestions on how to dye them black?
