Seat Replacement?

Just bought a 06 LS 4 door. I plan on using it for road trips and grocery getter, but the seats are not very comfortable and I need a arm rest. are there seats from other models that I can use that are more comfortable, and have a arm rest? Thanks!

You can buy a stock arm rest for these cars. I'd check out GM parts sites online unless you have a scrap yard around. For seats, if yours are worn, replacing the foam seat cushions could make a vast improvement. That would probably be the cheapest way to go.

Don't call the dealer until you get the part number for the whole armrest setup. Dealer wanted $500+ for all the pieces for my 05 ls. I found the part number on here for the whole kit and ordered it. Cost me like $145 tax in

Replace the seat cushion and back with new foam. I'd imagine after 7 years, foam wears quite a bit.
