    Default What tools needed to change out seats on '94?

    I tried doing a search to find the requested info and was unsuccesful. I was wondering if someone could help me...pretty please?

    I just purchased a 1994 Suburban with leather seats. They are all in pretty bad shape so I purchased a complete new set from eBay. The new seats are cloth and came out of a 99 Suburban. I went out today to start working on removing the old seats and it appears it will be a little more tricky than I thought. I thought I would find a bunch of bolts that could easily be removed with a ratchet set. But I found bolts with a wierd "star" pattern on the head...what size attachement or tool do I need for these? Any other tips you can give me would be great.

    That's a Torx bolt. It uses a torx socket... I think it's somewhere in the line of a T50, T55, or T60, but I'm not 100% sure. Sears usually sells and 8 or 9 piece set of torx sockets for around $40 that should have the right Torx socket in it.
