7 It's A Spring Thing. It's not uncommon to find a broken spring in your seats, typically on the outside edge. These are the ones that take all the abuse of you getting in and out of the car. There are replacement springs on the market, but sometimes you just don't have time to order a replacement. One way to get the seat to feel right again is to rob one from somewhere else in the seat and re-bend it if necessary to fit in your new location. Look to the passenger side spring, as these tend to be in good shape. Then you can just re-bend the broken spring and put it where you got the replacement.
