Center Armrest

I just bought my 07 LS sedan and haven't even taken possession of it yet and already I'm wanting to put in a center armrest so I have a couple questions.

How hard is it to install?
Where is the best place to buy one? (besides a dealer)

Thanks!
Tom

Love mine, got mine from the dealer. All in all pretty much the same price either way you go. Try local salvage yards, but make sure you get all the hardware.

Easy install also.

Yeah, I found a website called GM parts giant, it's about the same price as anywhere so I'll probably get it from there.

Its so easy to install. You just remove the piece around the handbrake, then the cup holder piece then you put the armrest in. It like slides in a bit then you screw it down with a couple bolts in the back, then you use the new rear cup holder piece and reinstall the original piece around the handbrake.

That does sound really easy, I'm glad you don't have to tear the whole console out like I saw somebody say somewhere else.

Big big thanks everyone!

Np. It really is quite easy. With the exception of the two 10mm bolts for the arm rest, its all clips. Gotta love GM haha

Yeah, gotta love plastic parts. It's puzzling why they don't put those in the car already, my bro's didn't have one either.
