Would you also use the foam blocks with those pads or the new pad compensates for them making them unnecessary?

Sorry to bother you again. It is unclear to me if the seat eliminates the usual issues associated with the factory seat or it's just more ridgid but still needs the foam blocks under it. I'd like to buy yours but I need to be prepared so I don't do the work twice. Please clarify.

For those of you who do not feel comfortable doing the install yourself any decent trim shop will do the install for about $50.

This ain't rocket surgery folks it's just a bottom foam replacement.

Very interested in this also, it appears from my research that both items are needed. The "kit" firms up the bolster's and provides a jute pad for the center of the seat. This item will firm up the center but does not appear to firm up the bolster area. Are the two leather strips what is supposed to prevent the frame from digging into the bolster foam? Just wondering if I need both kits or not. Thanks

Tired of sitting on a slope... Ill be the guinea pig and just ordered. Ive already rebuilt the seat bottom once 2 years ago after the rails cut through the foam, taking the seat apart is pretty easy. Ill let y'all know the verdict. I don't promise a step by step because its remove, replace, put back together. Just 3 hog rings hold it on.

A philosophical question - a vendor makes a promise to post. Many people ask, but still no post. One you want to do business with?

Pictures and install guide posted. I lost the sd card and had to do the damn cover again. This is a very easy DIY project.

I don't see why you would need the extra foam with this new cushion with the frame barrier and wire pad already applied. After I installed the new cushion it was a big difference in comfort and the side looks like it would never fail with the leather strips as a barrier. But if you inclined to throw some foam in there go ahead.

Yes, the leather strips act as a barrier between the frame and the cushion so it will not cut the foam and depress. It "firms" up the bolster area because it is NEW foam so it doesn't have any starting problems.
