Seat Roam

Recommended Posts

Well my drivers seat was killing my hip due to the foam starting to break down. I did some reading http://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/3rd-gen-non-powertrain/129591-front-seat-foam-3.html on refoaming parts of your seat. I had the typical left bolster sagging. Pulling the cover off was pretty easy. In doing so I also found out why my heated seat isn't working. Broken wire and was burning the seat foam! I removed the foam from the base. and glued some burlap to the bottom to give some support to where the springs were starting to cut the foam. I also re-glued the Left side bolster back to the main cushion since it was starting to separate. I then took some 1" foam and built both hip bolsters up. Flipping the cushion over I cut a piece of 2" foam to fit the recess of the frame area. I then spray glued some burlap to the 2" foam to give it some strength and resistance from the seat springs cutting through it. Took a little effort the get the cover back on but not too difficult. The seat is a bit more Poofy than before, but will settle in with use. Well have to see how this feels with some miles on it. If I don't like it I'll make some more adjustments.

got a chance to put some miles (about 70) on the new foam today. I may still have a bit of adjusting to do but I got to tell ya all the spine jarring bumps from crap roads is gone! None of the shock form sharp bumps is being transmitted up through the driver. Deffinately was worth the little bit of time it took!
