I’m going to replace my worn out seat cushion in my 2011 Yukon Denali. It looks like the seat shop doesn’t swell a durafoam replacement for the Denali seats with heat/AC. I figured I’d go oem for about the same price but wanted to see if others who’ve been down this road have any suggestions?

I could most likely get away with buying foam foam pieces at an arts/crafts type store and just add to the left corner to fix the flattened foam if that’s worked?

im bit going to steam route because it’s not a long term fix and I plan to keep this as a play toy.

it’s really just the left side that’s been flattened from sliding in/out for the last 10 years. All other seat cushions are perfect with little wear tbh. Leather is in very good condition as well in all 3 rows but I may go ahead and replace the perforated cover when I do the foam I’m thinking.

I went with Seat Shop's durafoam when I replaced the driver's seat lower upholstery, and kind of wish I had gone with the OEM foam instead. The durafoam is more firm and, at least in my mind, not as comfortable as the OEM. That said, it works fine and after a while I have gotten used to it.

That’s the type feedback I was wanting to see. Thanks. I’m going to grab an eom foam cushion for sure if my fix of the left side foam doesn’t work.

I replaced the bottom half of my heated/cooled cushion in my 09 Tahoe with the factory replacements and I couldn't be happier. The cooling feature is much improved too since the passages collapse over time.

My 2012 is designed different it has the single slot near the front edge instead of the holes, I think they changed them in 2010 when they made other changes.
