One of the common issues with older vehicles is worn out seats. This is especially common for Toyota trucks which often see heavy use and have thin cushion to start with. The seats in my 1986 Toyota 4runner had seen better days. The driver seat had no lumbar support remaining, unless you count the steel support bar which was protruding through the padding. The back seat was a full bench seat with no head rests. Overall, the fabric was in excellent condition consider the age but the seat cushion was worn out.
There are many types of seats that people have swapped into their Toyotas; common seat choices include Honda Civic, Acura Integra, Subaru Impreza and other unusual ones like Mercedes. I chose Toyota. Oringally, I was looking to install some 3rd gen 4runner seats (1996-2002) but I found that extensive modification would be required.
