1988 GMC Suburban Seats.

I cannot find replacement seat cloth material that is a direct replacement for my 1988 GMC Suburban.

I am looking for all three rows of bench seats, but am also considering replacing the front bench with a set of buckets originally from a early to mid 80's Camaro I happen to have in another truck I plan on parting out.

I am completely without luck when it comes to the middle and rear seats.

I am looking for a light grey cloth.

Here is where I get my upholstery supplies. Great personal service so if they don't list your material give them a call (ask for Jason) and see if they can track it down for you.

I should have been more specific, I am more interested in a direct replacement where I can cut the existing hog rings, remove the old material, and slip the new on with a new round of hog rings.

The main problem I see with the middle seats is that the backs are in the carpet material that the rest of the rear of the Suburban has back to the tailgate.

I am not really interested in picking a particular color right now, since I plan on changing the exterior color.

I'm pretty sure that those would be molded seat-covers, meaning the covers and pad are molded together, sometimes the frame too. If so, they require alot more work than just removing and slipping on another cover.

SWEET AKM, that first link is exactly what I was looking for. With a decent price too.

Here's a pic of what my current seating type is, with the same color, that I intend on changing.
