    i have an 80 K5 and i'm getting rid of the stock seats. so far my best option is to get summit racing bucket seats and build a lift cage and get a 4point harness, if anyone knows of something that can save me all the effort post some info. thanks

    I don't think you'll like the Summit Racing seats. gjk5 has some, and I know that he doesn't. Quite uncomfortable for a vehicle that sees more use than 8-12 seconds down the 1/4mile.

    I would either go with buckets out of another vehicle. That's what I did, 99 Cavalier seats.

    Or get suspension seats from some place like PRP. Which is what I plan to do eventually. There's a link off the Home page for an install of those. They have the cuts for the harness. But, they are going to be more expensive than the seats from Summit.

    as said before check ebay. do a search on seats bucket seats etc. i bought a pair of nissan maxima black leather 6-way power buckets for $150 plus the ride. also got a set of 98 maxima grey cloth buckets $50 plus ride. some bracket fab needed but easy enough! worth a shot.
