    Wow that's crazy. I have the bench seat too and its fine. Are you the original owner? Maybe the previous one was a wide load (____/____) and put a lot of wear on the seat.

    i bought ut used, the guy had to have been a load. most of the strands were broken and the bump finished it off. junk yards wanted well over $200 for a bench seat. i work in a quarry and took a piece of heavy screen , put it under the seat and used the original springs to fasten it. its nice not having to look through the steering wheel.
