I was wondering why my seats were sometimes a pain in lower back sometimes (standard 2.8 seats). My conclusion was that while driving my back
was just slightly off neutral (the lower back was a bit too far back into the seat by about 2"). My solution was to pull out the the wrap around piece of
leather (from the seat back going under and between the seat bottom and top) this is not difficult. I then stuffed a 2" by 6" foam up to where the
back rest is and put the leather back to where it started from. Works perfectly not a problem after 2 three hour drives! I did use a special foam
which is used in aircraft or on wheel chairs to prevent pressure points but other medium firm foams should work.

If you have any questions please email me.

: Ahhhhh relief!!!!! I put some back supports I had from years ago behind the sheepskin seatcovers and WOW what a difference. After driving for 3.5 hours in the dark I arrived feeling very limber- I felt very comfy in those torture seats!
: I am trying to find the company that made my back supports (they are very old) but here are some I found on the 'net... the only real difference I can see so far is that mine have an elastic strap to hold them in place.
