    I used the seats from a 98 Yukon 2 door. Virtually bolted in and have the inner swivel armrest as well as being high back.

    I've got a pair of 1995 Saab 9000 seats in mine. Had to fabricate a bracket but it's not too bad since Saabs have a flat floor pan, and my 77 has a flat floor pan. No arm rests, but super comfy and very er... refined! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Driver's side has normal adjustments plus adjustments for lumbar support, leg support, and height -- the height is great to lift up a couple inches and see over the hood when wheeling! All manual too, which I like. 'Course I did hook up the seat heater just for fun. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    Cost me $150/pair at Mile Hi Saab in Denver, leather was more.

    cheers,
    Kevin

    I've read that any gm astro/safari, and camaro/firebird seats will bolt right up to your existing seat mount. As well im guessing that any full size gm truck seat should fit fairly easily as well. I too hope to soon swap in a more comfortable pair of seats. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I found a vendor at the local swap meet that sells brand new repos for two factories in California and Texas. I am going to get a 40 20 40 for $550. They are very nice and the middle seat is also a flip down consol and is independantly adjustable. I measured a front seat out of a Chevy Lumina (I think) and it was the same dimensions as the back blazer seat. It is also a 40 20 40 and can be bought for about $100 and can be recoverd to match my front seat for $220. I want the back seat to recline and have a console so I think this lumina bench is perfect except the absence of arm rests. I'll have to fab those along with using the old bracket so the seat still flips up (at least thats the idea)

    Anyways, For a grand I am going to have front and rear 40 20 40's.


    Good Luck

    You're not supposed to sit in import seats zakk, they are supposed to get crushed as a direct side affect from crawling over the Acura /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I have a Bench seat out of a 67 Pickup in my 83 so the brackets were the same in the 67 - 72 trucks, if that helps at all. I got mine from a guy my dad knew, he was building a show truck so he had it refurnished, then he ended up not finishing the truck because he bought a old GTO I think.
