160k, time to replace driver's seat?

I know this sounds like a really odd question, but my driver's seat doesn't feel like the way it used to when new. The Passenger's and Rear still feel pretty good. I'm only in the car 30min tops per day compare to one to two hours when I lived in Oklahoma from '09 to '14. Now where it becomes a PITA is the drives from Florida to Ohio. We did a trip from Georgia to Ohio back right when we first bought it in 2007, and occasional trips from Oklahoma to Ohio for the first two years of ownership. Our backs weren't bothering us at the time afterwards. Now it's the complete opposite. I'm waiting and seeing if it's going to be worth replacing the padding since we may be upgrading to an Odyssey. I don't have any room to add in extra cushioning as a temp fix as I'm 6ft tall and about 240lbs.

Call up some local junkyards. There should be at least one that you can swap in to hold you out until you get that Odyssey.
