Replacement Driver's Seat

Postby AK-Man [OP] » Jul 03 2011, 9:33pm

Howdy,

I have a 2002 GMC Sierra 1500. I need to replace the driver's seat but despite webs surfing a few days I can't find anyplace that sells replacement seats (other than sites that sell very custom replacement for racing,etc).

I would appreciate it if anyone here can point me in the right direction toward a place to sells replacement seats.

My seat is cloth, has self contained seat belt (seat belt totally attached to seat versus any part of interior of truck), and has power movement (but manual recline and lumbar support).

Thanks

Jim

Thanks for the reply. I ran across that site as well. I could not find any driver's seats there that had the built in seatbelt. The rig I have has the seat belt totally integrated into the drivers seat. No part of the seatbelt is affixed to the interior of the cab.

Thanks for poking around. Still looking myself. If anyone knows where I can find such a seat I would appreciate it!!

Is your seat broken or could it be re-apolstered?

Thanks guys. All great ideas that I will follow up on. The seat is damaged so re-upholstering not an option. The back of the seat (the part your back rests against) has twisted (when a heavy person was reaching into the back of the cab for an item on the back seat). I may try to "twist" it back but it is pretty far out of alignment.

Will follow up with the area salvage yards. Thanks for the help.

hmm. LMC.com or lmctruck.com seems to have every other imaginable part for our trucks maybe give them a call see if they can order it or point you in the right direction.

Thanks for the tip on lmctruck.com. Went to the site and definitely a comprehensive catalog.

I have the proverbial stupid question.....what is this part's name?? I can't find anything under "driver's seat". Is this item a "chair" a "seat" is it "front" or "drivers". On most of the catalog sites I have been to I actually can't find a chair or seat in them. I have been to sites that have custom seats, but have yet to find a site that actually shows a regular everyday GMC truck seat. Perhaps I am searching using the wrong key words!!!

I know...I am lame

=)
