Default 95-99 60\40 seat question

My car has 2 sle style buckets but the drivers has broken and I'm searching for another. Are the 60\40 seats. notably the 60 drivers seat, as comfortable as the bucket version? It looks almost identical except for the extended portion.
Thanks!

They will bolt in. Buckets are much more common to find if looking in JY'*.

As for comfy.. tough to say the one or two I've sat in were already worn out and half broken.

Thanks...I've been to a few jy'* and to my surprise find that there is a another bucket seat style that was available for the mid to upper 90'* bonny. Maybe a lower trim level but it did not look like the sectioned bucket I have, it'* more just a flat bucket. I've been enticed to 2 jy'* already only to find this seat. However I did find a 60\40 that seemed nice. I need it in tan cloth so it'* a pretty hard search so far.

X 2. The condition of the seat will determine comfort more than 60% versus bucket. With seats of identical condition, the bucket should give better support, and therefore be more comfortable for long rides.

Right...I have 2 cloth bonny buckets in my caprice and they are great for long drives. Also had a pair in one of my trucks and they too were very comfortable. Now I was given this bonneville and there seems to be something broken in the frame as it tilts to one side and starts to make my back ache on 2 hour trips. It seems I can find leather tan buckets with ease but don't like leather. Thanks for the replies.

Where are you located? Some others might be able to give you a heads up at where a set might be.

So I found a set of tan, cloth, 6-way buckets in good shape for very cheap. It just needs cleaning but want to do it right. Any experiences with a good fabric cleaner? Thanks!

Can someone confirm that the seat covers can be removed by just pulling them over the frame or are they hogringed in some places or all? I'm wanting to remove the drivers seat cover to wash. Thanks!
