    Default Bench Seat Cushion Repair?

    Hey, all. The bench seat cushion in my 86 GMC pick-up is starting to
    sag on the driver's side. I can see some of the foam that's flaked
    away coming out from underneath the seat. Maybe it's trying to tell me
    that I need to exercise more, but since that's not likely to happen, I
    thought I'd try to fix it. A new bottom cushion seems to run about
    $200-$250, but I noticed there's a "Bench and Bucket Seat Rebuilding
    Kit" available for around $30. Anyone had any experiece with one of
    these rebuild kits? Before I invest the $30, I'd like to know if it
    really works. Any other suggestions, or cheap alternatives, would be
    appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    It would be easier and cheaper to just replace the seat with a used one in
    better condition, Besides the $30 you need a good set of hog ring pliers,
    the cheap junk they send aint worth a tinkers damn, and hope the seat cover
    comes
    off with out ripping, after all it is 20 years old. I helped a buddy do a
    set of buckets
    for his 67 Camero, we both agreed never again. It came out nice, but it
    would have been
    more cost effective to have an upholstery shop do it.

    Never redid a seat on that new of a truck. A lot of the 70s seats had these
    zig zag springs underneath that supported a layer of fabric and then the
    foam and then the upholstery. Sometimes just the foam was broken down and
    we could replace it, but often the springs had started to sag. I had a
    buddy who tweaked the srpings on his truck seat and he said it was great,
    but just setting ther the seat always looked like it had a big ridge under
    the driver's butt. LOL.
