C5 and C6 Corvette Seat Rebuild Kit
Seat Foam and Padding Rebuild Kit for the C5 and C6 Corvette
It is no secret that the seats of the C5 & C6 have a reputation for being less than satisfactory in the area comfort and support.
Over the last year or so, a solid repair process has been developed and we want to share it with everyone. We wanted to see how it worked out in my car for a year and can say I feel its 100% better than OEM. There are two problems: The side bolsters from the factory do not have any support under them. So as you climb in/out of the seat, the outside bolster foam tears where it sits on the steel seat frame and quickly sags or goes flat. The steel wires in the center area cut into the foam and quickly cause the foam to sag and pinching around the hip area. I found this extremely uncomfortable after only 15 minutes.
This seat rebuild kit comes with all of the seat foam insert pieces necessary to provide the extra support needed to give your Corvette seats a more luxurious feel. If you want to improve the comfort of your Corvette without replacing the stock seats, this simple and affordable kit is a fantastic means by which you can do this. Easily installable at home, this kit provides the extra, high-density, strong and comfortable foam needed to give your Corvette seats extra support and cushion to help make your Corvette interior more luxurious and enjoyable. A great way to improve comfort and drivability quickly and affordably.
This kit corrects a flaw in the original seat design that leads to premature failure of the center and bolsters.
