Does anybody else hate their seat?

Recommended Posts

I had a 19 RST, 20 LT 2500 and now 21 GMC elevation and have to say my 21 seems most comfy out of all.....seems like bit more foam in the seat, not a ton but just bit more....definetly feels just bit more refined than my 19, idk if its true just seems that way

How difficult was that?

 

I didn't want the vibration but it was the only way to get the HUD so I ordered it that way ... haven't got it yet tho

You can turn the vibration off in vehicle settings.  

 

Alert Type
This feature sets the type of alert from the driver assistance systems to help avoid crashes.
Touch Beeps or Safety Alert Seat.

 

We had a 2015/6 around here that the vibration devices weren't buried deep enough and became annoying on a long trip. 

 

Not an issue with this '21.

I took out the vibrators. Zip tied them up under the seat. Big improvement 

Did the same. I used double sided tape to mount the sensor motors to the bottom of the seat pan thinking maybe the vibrations would be felt. Nope! So I turned them off.

Bottom line, the seats could and should offer a much higher level of comfort.

Unless they redesigned the seat bottoms on the ‘21 they are not buried at all. I believe they sit in a recess and the only padding is the upholstery. When I removed mine, I pulled them out through a small hole in bottom of the seat foam. The hole is for the wire and connector to pass through but large enough to remove the sensor motor. I made up two plugs from some closed cell foam and inserted them into the voids.

In a 2016 1500 with them they became bothersome. 

2018 2500 with them they were not an issue.

2021 1500 they are not an issue. 

 

Did have to do a bunch of adjusting and trials to find front and rear seat height to my liking. With that done, I really like these seats.

No longer ever 'notice' them, which imo is the sign they they are as they should be.

Heating on them is way way above that  '11, '15, '16, and '18's. 

 

I'm a fan of these seats so far. 

It was built in October, so it hasn't seen hot weather to evaluate the seat ventilation.

That’s a great idea. My next mod. I just need to find something to fill the void. Was thinking spray foam and tape over the hole to keep it in till it sets.
