My best bet from what I know is that you will have the old seat as I did. Joe at JPM was very clear that the fix / new seat foam was only in models years 2008 on.
My 2007 seat did go "saggy". When I replaced it I found the new seat firmer and tighter. If you really want to dig into it I would suggest going to your dealership and see what part # your existing seat is. If it is different from the one the Tom at Crate Engine has ( see earlier post) then you will know. Good luck.

Thanks, CmcComb1, for sending me your extra items. After I picked up a piece of sheet metal from HomeDepot, it took me all of fifteen minutes to complete this mod. A big thanks to you, and also to all those who contribute to this forum. I'll be enjoying my ride even more (I know, that's hard to believe!)
Wish I had it last weekend when we traveled to Prescott for a long weekend. BUT, next weekend's trip to Tombstone should be a great test.

The Lumbar Support was from one of our third party vendors, not GM.

Err, the point was about the saggy seat issue, not the Lumbar support itself (despite the thread title).

I read that the 2009 seat cushion had improved material. One could certainly use one of them picked up from a recycler.

I dont know if the GT would fit.

If by "GT" you mean GXP, then, probably, yes.

2008 were upgraded, according to 'sources' (JPM).

They should be identical, as far as the shape and the mountings, there might be a difference in the finish.

If you're just replacing the cushion, I assume you'll reuse your existing cover - in which case the appearance will be the same. (You could use steam to shrink your current leather, if it has wrinkles.)

If you want to swap the cover as well, the car variants were all made in the same plant with the same materials - so should look the same (if you get the same color). However, the new cover will (obviously) be newer and may therefore look different because of that.

UPDATE: Apologies, DaveOC. I thought those two quotes were from RedOne and so was replying to the same person (in my mind)

I didn't notice any difference between my 06 and 08gxp. Looked into those hand pump inserts but didn't find one I liked so I wound up shoving a small roll of bubble wrap behind the cushion and it solved the problem.

Not a problem. I like the steam comment.
