Default Seat back broke

well i searched and could not find a thing, but i could be silly and not saw it, but anyway i have a 98 ranger xlt regular cab.
my driver seat has these two rods sticking out of the back, i assume its part of the back support.
can this be fixed, and if so how hard is it.
it scratched me one day and i have been thinking of trying to fix it ever since
if it can be fixed, i would be willing to take pics and write a how to.
i know im not the only one with this problem
any help is greatly apreciated

Does the seat still function fully, like the tilt and all?

those 2 rods are the only support from the bottom of the backrest to the top. (unless you have adjustable lumbar). a lot of ford trucks have them, and i have seen a lot of them break just like you said. you can take the seat apart, pull the cover and foam off, and weld them back together. i would add another brace somewhere about half way up going from side to side. just make sure it is shaped in a way to allow the foam to sit where it is supposed to.
