I have a 92 Blazer/Tahoe that has bucket seats and the ugly center console.
Im sure a lot of you guys have swapped these out for new ones, I got an estimate for 550 for JUST the 2 fronts to redo them in the same OEM material. Would it be better if I found some grey seats from like a 95 instead.
Any idea on what I should expect to pay if I wanted to find some 95+ bucket seats and a console?

Check out seat from a pontiac bonneville. THey swap right in and you find them in junkyards cheap. I want to get some out of an 00 ssei because I loved the seats in my bonnie. The colors match up pretty well also with obs interiors.

Good 95-up OBS bucket seats or a split bench, anywhere from $200 to $600, depending on how lucky you get. Sometimes individuals have 'em on craigslist cheap. Junkyards, some are proud of 'em and some aren't. I've been quoted $600 for raggedy older-model buckets that had been sitting for months with no doors on the truck so they were crusty and stiff from exposure to the weather...I just laughed and walked.
Gray can be the hardest color to find because everyone wants it, and you also have to write off a good number of them for being stained to death, since it's the lightest color available.
As far as the 94-down console, unless you have an aftermarket conversion type one, I actually think the OEM unit is pretty decent! The cupholders work well (for me anyway; I always have my drink in a Koozie and they fit snugly into it) and there's lots of room inside the console. A lot more than I can say for the 95-up bucket console, and WAY more than I can say for the 60/40 split fold-down console that almost always has a busted lid on it, and hardly any room inside.

Well the lock on mine broke, I was thinking like a 95 style or something. A 94ish replacement would work as well, either or!

i just bought a set of 60/40 seats out of a 97 silverado for $25.00 at a local salvage yard, i was hoping i could get some for around $200.00. couldnt believe it when he told me the price

Steal of a deal! Every now and then I've scored like that, too. Hard to figure out why it works like that, and then some little chickensh!t item you need is made of gold...
I'm not mad at 'em for wanting good money for GOOD seats; it's hard to find them, I know I don't sell them cheap either. But good money for crapped-out seats like the $600 indoor/outdoor buckets...nah. They can keep 'em.
