I got mine out of a '98 Cavalier, at the Pick and Pull for about $25 a piece. the first one bolted right up. I didn't like the way it sat back too far, so I put a couple of old u-bolt nuts on the back bolts and now it's perfect. Here's a pic of the first one. Hopefully I can put the other one in tomorrow. I will be removing the fugly seat belt bracket when I figure out how to remove the headrest, or I'll cut it off. Maybe you Cavalier seat owners will give me the secret.

I just went to the Pull and Save this Saturday and got two seats out of a 95 Grand Prix for $25 total!! They were in great shape and WHAT a difference they make!! It's like riding on a pillow! I looked at my old seats and can't believe how horrible they were.

It only took me 5 min to pull them and about 30 to put them in my Jeep. Easily the best $25 I've spent so far...

Yes!! They were direct bolt in!! I removed the slider assemb from the Grand Prix and just reused the bolts that attached the seats to the sliders. Worked like a champ! NO modification necessary.

EDIT: The only downside is I took them from a 4dr vehicle and do not have the ability to fold them forward. This wasn't a big deal for me b/c no one gets in my drivers side. The passenger side still folds forward using the factory slider assembly.

I also dropped in a 7.5 inch bestop console. Anything wider would not fit.

Yea, I have the same seats. It's a tight fit, but my 8 1/2" center console fit just fine. Man they are comfortable.

I had the same console, but couldn't get it back in with the seat belts. That's why I went with a 7.5 inch console.

Well I installed the seats with the center console still in. Maybe that's the difference. It is quite snug, but everything still works. Maybe it's because I have the center console raised with a couple of pieces of 2x4.

I'll try and take some pictures of my seats in the next couple of days.

----> I'm also thinking about wiring up some seat heaters between the Grand Prix seats and my seat covers...
