Is your drivers side seat cushion sagging?

I've got about 60,000 miles on my 2002 ford ranger. When it was at about 35,000 miles I had ford replace the drivers side seat cushion b/c it felt like you were sitting in a hole. Well now it's doing it again. When i did the bucket seat mod i tried to stiffin it up by putting some of the foam from the part i cut out under the main cushion and that didn't work.

Has anyone else had this problem? And what should i do to fix it?

I thought about getting a passenger side seat cushion because it is really stiff "my neighbor works for ford so i get cheap parts". Would it fit the passenger side?

i feel the same way. i need a new pair of seats that have a lot of support, and that will hug me in my place.

I haven't had a problem with the seat bottom, but the seat back has sprung something. Twice I've felt something give or snap back there, and now I feel like I have a "hole" in the seat back. Maybe I was just leaning back too hard, I'm kind of a big guy, so no real surprise.

I've read in here that Explorer seats can be directly bolted in place of the stock Ranger seats. $100-200 out of a junkyard. Probably what I'm gonna do...you might consider the same. More comfortable too.

I have both happening. I've had the seat sagging on the side closest tto where tthe door is on the seam of the cloth / foam. When I got in it tonight i heard and felt something brake or do something in the back part of it.

Seat swap here I come...

well when i had my 96 ranger i done the mod for the console and i got the seats too i had to use the brackes off my original seats to make the explorer seats work but the bolt holes are the same just different brackes just swap them around and youre good to go.

Just a suggestion, something that I did to my old ranger.

Pull the seat out of the truck, look on the bottom of the seat. The upholstery is clipped onto metal rails under the seat. Un clip, pull the fabric back, insert the foam block of your choice where your a** sits, and reattach the fabric under your seat.
PRESTO! So more sitting in a hole.

That's what i was thinking about doing. What kind of "stuffing" do you think would work best?

I went to a crafts store and bought the thickest and softest block of foam I could find. then I just cut it down to size when I got to the seat. I think it was like 4" thick, and about 3' by 3' square. Only cost maybe $5. Hey, I was 17, cheap, and it worked for me!
