I just want to maybe go to a salvage yard and find one from another ford that bolts right in. Like a mustang, or a taurus or somthing else.

The problem is hight. I dont want it to raise me up so my head rubs the roof.

The problem i have is with the bottom cross bar on the bottom of the back of the seat. If you push on the seat down low you can feel a really hard support bar that runs along the bottom of the back. thats the part thats killing me.

I thought if i cant find another seat from a different car soon ide try and cut some foam from another chair and line the whole back part then put a seat cover over everything.

The way the seat is tilted you body wants to slide back into that bar, maybe lifting the back up so it didnt have that tilt would keep you from sliding back into it.

I also notice what i like best about the seat is having it lowered all the way down with that crank, this leaves a big gap between the bench and the back.

As common as a seat is how can they ruin this part of a car? you would think after years and years of building cars they would atleast know how to build a friggin comfortable seat.
