Default soooo sooooft

so as you all know i replaced the 6 way power seats with the AL7'* from a SSEi....now the particular SSEi had about 140K, and the seat bottoms were not in that good shape and neither were the backs...so i have assembled 2 good back, and one good bottom.....anyway...so the seat cusions were really bad as the springs and worn into the cusion and it was really out of shape.....so.....you replace

here is the stock drivers seat cusion out of the SSEI seats

Wow that'* pretty cool! After finally experiencing AL7'* (briefly) last weekend in MN, I could definitely see how they'd be worth it. But I can't really say that my seats are uncomfortable though

Seriously, when I sat down in Seth'* passenger seat, I couldn't believe how awesome that lumbar support felt. I felt like I was strapping in tight for takeoff or something...(basically was )

Try driving 36 or 48 straight hours. AL7'* show their value..slightly worn or not..
