I've used Prolong for about 15 years. I've had excellent results with it. It's available from AutoZone for about $20/bottle. No idea if it was in any infomercials in the 80's....

thats the brakes with a used bus the driver seats always suck! i swear the schools trade out the seats for the worse ones they have in the fleet. i bought a seat from a salvage yard from a chevy suburban one of those $1000 dollar from the factory jobs. has leather and vibrates and heat and cools and well does bout every thing but drive the bus for YA! dual arm rest a fella could fall asleep in this puppy its so comfortable. so its a good place to start i only paid like $200 for it at the junk yard and it matches the interior of the bus now

Many pics tomorrow... Sleep tonight.

I feel your pain. Not only does the seat in my Amtran suck, but its on a solid pedestal. Even if it's the mechanical suspension out of an M35/M806/M923, I'm putting that seat on air.
