Driver seat

Ok guys the problem i have right now is that the driver is worn a bit I think the springs in the bottom of the seat are worn out. I was wondering does anyone know how much it would cost to have some fix this or would it be cheaper to buy new seats. Thanks for any advice you may have.

It would be easier to go to the junk yard and get a new set of matching seats.

When you say new seats... what do you mean? New seats from ford? New seats from a recent wreck at the junkyard? New suspension seats like Beard or Corbeau? My guess is the foam would wear out before the metal springs on your current seats. Maybe look into getting them reupholstered?

I still agree... your best bet might be some junkyard seats.

I'm thinking the foak has worn out. I was wondering how much it would cost to reupholster my drivers seat. The thing with junkyard seats you dont know what your getting they might not be much better than what I already have.
