Any firm resources on Chevy Truck inter-model parts compatibility?

What years / models of Chevy Trucks / SUVs have interchangeable (for the most part) interior mechanicals, specifically seats?

I own a 2004 Chevy Avalanche. The driver's side seat decided to break... one of the main back supports seems to have broken, and the seat belt no longer retracts fully.
I've contacted several local salvage yards, but it seems 2004 Av's are in pretty short supply. I know that there are certain models / years of other Chevys that use essentially the same seats in some cases... but Google continues to turn up enough conflicting information about what is and isn't compatible... everything from 'nothing else is compatible' to 'Anything from 99-07 will work'. Obviously I want to make sure it will fit before dropping the $.
I'm guessing that there may not be a 1:1 relationship here... it might depend on what options I have? Is there a way to compare the option / RPO codes between trucks to determine compatibility with other models or years?
And before anyone suggests it... yes, I did talk to the service department at two different local dealerships. Neither could find any members of their service staff who could give a definitive answer on compatibility with other models / years.
Bonus points for replacement tips, and if you can tell me if a seat with more options than my current simple 6-way power will work just fine (not looking for the extras to work, necessarily, as long as I have at least the 6-way power I have now).
Thanks in advance!
