trying to find the replacement insert foam for the driver seat in my 96 bronco...ideas? My only thought for cheap is find a passenger seat insert out of a junk yard since it would not be worn down as much. Thanks for the input

That would work! But yards around our rural area want at least $90.00 for a complete seat and they will not part the foam or tracks, etc. out.
Try this instead;

Rebuild in an 86 Eddie Bauer; "....It gets rid of the toilet feel they get as they age (your @$$ touches the sides, but not the middle). for next to nuthin' and they feel great now. All it cost me was a box full of hog rings and a pair of hog ring pliers, some 1" foam and the special non-melting spray can of foam rubber adhesive. Cut the hog rings and remove the seat bottom covers. Cut the center piece for foam, then the side bolsters, spray them and the original seat foam, wait 4 minutes and stick em on. After that pull the covers back over and install the new hog rings.While you're in there, tighten all bolts, especially the floor and track to seat bolts. I did this not just cause' Iz cheap, but also because precious few other seats out there are as large or have armrests. Dirt cheap, damned easy and darned effective..."

See page 44

also, they have the bench seat kit for same price

both kits are for 80-96
Altho this if for an 85, you can see that the seats will swap;
