Ok, this is driving me crazy. Every 4th gen TA has those plastic louvre lookin things on the sides of the seats, I can't find any info at all about em let alone where to buy them. My 2000 TA has the leather seats but thats all just standard seats leather back and all is this correct?? I would think that somebody before me removed the seat louvres, Id really like to put them back if thats the case but I can't find any info at all!

You could just have the base firebird seats without the plastic backs

My Trans Am has the base leather, there were two types. lumbar and non lumbar.

been doing some research on these "side bolsters". I could possibly not have that option, but i wouldn't be surprised at all if they were replaced with Camaro seats, every pic I've found looks nothing like my seats and more like the Camaro, plus the buttons for the power seat don't even look right, I've got more of a toggle switch like knob to scoot it back and forward and it moves very very slowly, has since I got it. I'm the 6th owner of this bird and I'm trying very hard to restore it to factory specs, even got a new center console and the tiny red LED lights that go underneath the door handle and I really want to find the right seats if these aint, I'll post pics so yall can get a better understanding of what I mean but I wouldn't be surprised if these were Camaro seats.

My car is a Formula and has cloth interior, so it doesn't have them. Also my father's '99 Trans Am does not have them, and it has leather. It should be easy to tell if they are camaro seats, because then they wouldn't have the head rest.

From what I can tell, there were 2 options available for Firebird seating:
RPO AG1 - "Articulating Seat" (aka: ADJUSTER FRT ST POWER, MULTI-DIRECTIONAL, DRIVER MULTI-DIRECTIONAL PWR D/SEAT ADJR(AG1)) - Available on both cloth and leather seats
RPO AQ9 - "Luxury Reclining Seat" (aka: SEAT,FRONT BUCKET,DRIVER,PASSENGER,RECLINING RECL FRT BKT ST,LUXURY(AQ9)) - Available only on leather seats, probably required AG1 also.
It appears that all T/As got AG1, and MOST T/As also got AQ9, but not all.
Which one has the "side louvers"?? :confused: Probably the AQ9.
