    Possible replacement seat for 4th gen camaro

    Looking for options for replacing my wore out driver seat in my Z28. Have leather now. Doesn't have to be leather replacement, just had to be comfortable. This is my daily driver for a 55 mile round trip.
    Can modify seat mounts if needed or do aftermarket.
    Other makes that fit. Other Gm.
    I know firebird works. Just can't find anything in good shape.
    As with any Camaro driver I am on a tight budget.
    Any suggestions out there would be appreciated.

    Take a look at 6le designs they have a pretty decent seat in either leatherette or real leather. Not too bad compared to some other stuff out there price wise. Think they run between 1k and 1500 depending on what you do. If you want something cheaper I have seen people make gto seats work in 4th gens.

    Whats wrong with your seats? If the foam is worn out, you can get them refoamed by a trim/upholstery shop. Just did my drivers side top and bottom for $100.00.

    The frame on the top of the side holster is wore through the foam. The leather is still nice from being a garage queen when not driven.

    I was told by the shop in town that no one made the foam. Apparently that's not true. Must have went to the wrong place.

    I haven't been able to find it on the internet either. Maybe I'm using the wrong search terms.

    The shop I went to made mine from a block of foam. Go to a local GM dealer and ask them to refer you to a shop that does warranty work and work on thier used cars.

    No luck at the dealership. They do not repair, only replace interior parts. Won't even work on my "old car".
    They only handle 2006 and newer.

    There is a pull a part about an hour away. I'll be going there this weekend.
    From my understanding these seats fit with little to no modification:
    93-02 fbody
    1995-05 cavalier/sunfire
    Any others out there that can be easily swapped?

    I wasnt suggesting to take it to the dealer for tthe repair. I suggested going to the dealership to find out what shop they sublet interior/seat work to. Every dealership has a relationship with at least one trim/upholstery shop.

    Add to that list 82-92 Fbodies, but they are even older.

    I was lucky enough to find the foam insert for my front seat on ebay a few years ago. People often sell parts from our cars on ebay. Worth a look. I think I paid under $50 for it.
