Any drivers bucket seat from a 98-05 S10, Sonoma, Blazer, Jimmy, or Bravada will bolt in with no modifications and work. My 04 came with all manual cloth seats, very basic, and I've had 2004 2 door Blazer seats in the front (driver's was power adjust, my Blazer was pre-wired), 2001 Bravada leather seats (driver and passenger were power, driver's was even memory, and everything was pre-wired and worked), and right now I actually have a split bench out of a 2001 Blazer in it (have to get the carpet from the seat donor to cover up the holes in the floor where the center console was). Only ones you can't really use are the solid benches found in bottom of the line single cab S10's, but you really don't see them too much... was mostly a fleet vehicle option.

There's actually a lot of direct bolt in options, but finding ones that are in good usable shape can be difficult...

Also worth noting, 98-01 for the Bravadas, 02+ Bravada's took on the Trailblazer platform... S10, Blazer, Sonoma, and Jimmy though, all 98-05

I've read about people using Camaro and Cavalier seats before. Not sure on what years bolt up...just have to test it out at the salvage yard.

I'm pretty certain any seats that aren't from an s series truck take some modification to fit. I don't believe any are a direct bolt up.

I'm in the exact same boat right now with my seats. The drivers side seat frame is slightly bent and digs into my lower back. I was just going to see if a non power frame is the same and replace the upper frame and then have all the seats professionally reupholstered. I have read some stuff online with guys using Mercedes C-class leather seats in muscle cars and I was thinking about going that route too. Since I am likely going to have my Blazer for awhile after sinking a bunch of money into it I figured its worth putting in some nice new seats.

With that said if I find any more major issues with this thing there will be a Blazer with lots of new parts in the for sale section
