We had a similar situation due to a new child, although it was with a 2002 Suburban. For that year, the bucket seats have the exact mounting configuration as a 60/40 split bench for any Suburban for years 2000, 2001 & 2002 I believe. Thus, I found a split bench at a junk yard from a 2001 Suburban. This was after about 1 year of searching. I actually previously bought two different seats that I thought would work - one off of Ebay in which the guy only sent 1 part of the 60/40, and another from an out-of-state used parts guy - the seat was from a '99 Suburban. The problem with the wrong year, other than the size is a bit different, is that all of the mounting locations are different. I would have had to drilled new points through the floor board to mount it. When I got the correct year seat, it fit perfectly on the existing mounts.
Forget trying to buy the bench from the dealer or Chevy - they won't sell it to you. My suggestion would be to find a reputable junk yard/parts dealer and have them find it for you. Since yours is an '05, you may want to check first to see if any of the adjacent years are compatible. Chevy may be able to help you with that.

For your reference, I paid $250 for the seat from a junkyard, then $500 to have it reupholstered in matching leather.

Don't forget to check your local area Craig's List....also dealers on Ebay have seats for sale all the time.

#6286 of 6469 2008 Chevy Tahoe Concern
May 21, 2008 (4:22 pm)
In Feb 2008, I bought a z71 Chevy Tahoe. Within the past two months, I began hearing a horrible rattling sound that comes on about two seconds after I start the vehicle. It is so loud that I am embarassed to start it. It is only happening after the vehicle is started. I took the vehicle in for service. However, nothing was found. It is doing it more often. Has anyone had the same problem?

#6288 of 6469 Loose steering
May 27, 2008 (2:02 pm)
I have a 98 Tahoe Z71 and its my first 4X4. The steering has gotten loose and it pulls to the right. If there is one of those anoying lines in the road where they have patched it my Tahoe trys to follow the line. I have to hold it strait when I hit a bump also. Any Ideas on where to begin with this would be greatly appreciated.
