Bucket seat hurts my back replacement ideas?

My Sunseeker 3010DS 2013 is killing my back on all drives. Anyone out there replace theirs ? Thanks for your time reading and replying.

My back bothers in many of the newer vehicle seats. I use a wedge cushion and it is a tremendous help.

After my wife's back surgery, our local fire chief recommended the "Sacroease":
https://www.amazon.com/McCartys-Sacr...ords=Sacroease
Expensive, but he strongly recommended. We bought one - waiting for the bone grafts in her back to heal sufficiently to try.
I also replaced the passenger seat in our Solera with one I procured online (shop4seats.com). Decent seat, but had to build an adapter plate to install, and lost front/back adjustability. Okay for passenger seat - not so much for driver's seat.

I use a small cushion behind my back about waist high if the seats donít have enough lumbar support.

Seat Replacement

I replaced the seats in our Solera. Very expensive but totally worth it for the huge upgrade in comfort. Here's my write-up of it.

have you tried the wire mesh type? Fairly cheap and they really helped my Mother's condition. Also saw but did not explore this website https://www.vivehealth.com/blogs/res...upport-for-car

I use a piece of foam behind my lower back to help relieve the pain. There is very little lumbar support in these seats.

I bought a lumbar brace from Amazon. Will report after my next trip.
