Are you referring to the seat back is twisted in relation to the seat bottom..and it's not a cracked seat track?

The Recaro's are a really comfortable seat.

You just need to get the seat rails that fit the G-body.

I am putting these in my TTA until I can get a set of 1983 Recaro's reupholstered in the TTA leather.

Since they came from a Trans Am they are a direct fit.

The retainer plate in the rear is probably broken. I had the same issue just followed this link it it was an easy fix all you need is a grinder and a welder. I used washers welded to the end of the pins when I put them back in to make it easier. TurboBuicks.com - Fix Your Seats!

hello people; My drivers seat has that twisted? bent? rear half of the seat also. It's been like that for too long. What I've done was just get a pc. of foam or cushion to fill the area till comfy. It's one on my never ending list of things that need to be fixed list...…I'd like to hear what you come up with..

My seat was bent and twisted for a long time not to mention the foam being worn out from 210 k of driving. When I reupholstered it last year I found the frame was cracked and I welded it. I got new foam 1614-Foam Seat Bun. Gbody parts lists them as well but they were out of stock when I needed it.
