Default 1989 Tracker SEAT compatibility

I have a 1989 geo tracker 8v 1.6 5speed tintop

what year trackers can I take seats out of? the seats in my tracker are beat to hell all torn up just want to replace them would be nice to get newer nicer seats.

Found a tracker at the P&P would guess mid ninties ?? can I take the seats from it and will they bolt into my 89 tracker plug and play?

what years "CAN" I take seats from? what about the back bench seat? what years are those compatible? (would be nice to have all matching seats)

thanks!

In the removable hardtop convertible types I have exchanged between 96 back to a 90 (cami to Japanese suzuki btw) and the front seats seem to be all the same. The back seats, in my experience, are strait bench or two bucket type seats and the mounts are different between the two. The seat belts differ from the 96 to the earlier models(front belts) so get all the hardware from the donor or you may have fabricating to do. Take pics of how your 89 is set up and take em with you to the boneyard.

my 89 is a hard top (non removable tintop) the donor is a soft top. both have bucket fronts and bench rears

what years have the same "bolt pattern" for the seat rails? ie drop in and bolt it up?

are the "benches" the same ie again bolt in and what years?. normally I would just find my year tracker and swap the seats right in the yard but there is no chance of me finding an 89 in the yard they have ONLY had 2 trackers to date and both were newer.

You are pretty safe with 89-95 as a straight swap, not sure if the number of doors (2 or 4 makes a difference here). However, if Loosenut advises he has done a straight swap from a 96, then presumably all Trackick seats (89-98) would be the same. The rear bench seat will be the same in all.

The front seats,although may look different,some with higher backs and separate head rests are interchangeable between tintops and plastic/rag tops.
The back seats in the tintop is a one piece seat and a one piece back,the plastic/rag tops have two little buckets,you'll have to drill a few holes as they have more hinges and latches.
Someone mentioned seat belts,they are different too,the front belts are not interchangable from a '91 tintop ti a '91 plastic top.They look he same but need mods to work.
Hope this helps.

Hrm. The 89 'Kick convertible I just bought as a bench backseat. Single piece seat and single back. So, someone swapped out the stock seats for that at some point? I really should take those seat covers off and see what the front seats looks like

so far ALL ragtops I have seen to date have the two piece bench seat in the back. one back one bottom.

I have never seen individual back seats yet.

In my experience, the high end models (like most pontiacs in my market) have buckets in the back. My wifes current suz 90 has a bench. This could be a trim level thing or vintage, possibly country of manufacture. They do not interchange easily. The fronts do. I had to make a seat belt extender to swap the 96 geo 2dr highline front seats into the 90 suz plain jane. This extender went to handbrake side of the front seats as the mounting point used in the 96 did not exist in the earlier models. Get all the hardware from donor! The extender I made was simple flat bar apx 6in long with holes at both ends.

The back seat is part of the trim package. The bench seat is the base package, and the split rear is 'jlx' or similar.

I would LOVE a split "back" where I can lay down half for more cargo but leave other half up for a third person.

does that exist with these? or just the bucket bottoms split?
