Re: Seat back broke
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.
