Thread: Front seat replacement

    Front seat replacement

    Having trouble finding anything to replace the old spring seats from a '59 CJ5. A local upholsterer wants the outrageous price of $450 per seat to redo the present setup. Anyone done this? I want to keep the gas tank under the driver and keep the flip-up option on passenger side to access tool box underneath.

    Walks has spring kits. https://walcks4wd.com/catalogsearch/..._list_limit=30 They also have the covers.

    There are a lot of cover vendors. The covers I received from KW were excellent. I went with their foam cushions. I am very happy with it. It appears they don't have you "covered" though! You may want o give them a call. Mike can usually get that stuff. I have seen a few videos on the web of rebuilding the springs.

    These seats are fairly easily to re-cover. It is still one of the more costly endeavors however.

    Thanks, the seats and springs need to be "stuffed" too though.

    I think the price the upholstery guy gave you might be pretty righteous, if he is good it would be hard to beat $450.

    The stuffing now a days is usually an inch of foam between the springs and the cover.
