    .....that is what it felt like. SO...I removed 4 small (1/4”?) locknuts attaching the seat to the seat adjuster and the back of seat recliner handle philips head screw. There are 4 lengthy plastic clips holding the stuffing and seat cover in place, one in front, one on one side and two on the other, unassemble them. This allowed me to lift the front of the seat allowing me to insert a 1” thick sheet of HD packing foam between the flat wire springs and seat. Replace all in reverse order to find I now sit high and dry. So to speak.

    But probably negated any kind of bolstering that bottom cushion may have had lol...however if that doesn't bother you then you're golden.

    True, But I could see no straight forward way to raise the seat.

    Have you ever thought about replacing the foam. After a few years the foam will brake down a little at a time and eventually it will loose elasticity. I replaced mine for about $70. Sits a bit higher than the old broken down foam.
