Default 2010 Impreza, Driver Seat incredible back pain.

Hey all,

I've had my 2010 Impreza for almost 2 years now, no issues.
Driver seat has always been pretty comfortable at least as far as I could tell.
In recent weeks i have been having incredible back pain and I have a manual seat and I know these dont have lumbar supports but it feels as if there was a lumbar and it disappeared. My lower back just sinks into the seat and it is so painful to sit down for more than a few minutes.

Any suggestions out there for these years of Impreza?
Any lumbar kits or fixes? or maybe even a new seat?

Please any help is appreciated

I've found that the seats are pretty uncomfortable too.
The springs don't seem to like staying attached to the frames. Maybe that's what's going on with yours.

One thing I would suggest try doing is going to a chiropractor and getting yourself checked out. If you can only sit for a few mins, sounds like something is wrong.

A temp fix would be to throw on one of those lumber back rests. http://smile.amazon.com/Duro-Med-Rel...upport+for+car

Angry back pain

I had a lot of pain in my back after long drives in my Impreza. No pain when I drove my other car. Went for physical therapy. Finally caught on and bought a lumbar support, and it works . Seats are shaped poorly. Back is much better.

My seats are becoming punishing as well at 97k. Going to try out that lumber support. I've tried a sit on cushion but it didn't help much. I remember reading one gentleman on here installed BRZ seats and loved them. Those are probably a grand for two used then I believe he had to make / fabricate the seats to bolt in. I don't remember if he retained his airbags but I do remember he was very happy with the comfort aspect. If you have the money and are willing to undertake the instal it may be a good solution
