I figured it out. I pulled off the snaps from the back of the seat cover. Lifted that up and noticed the seat foam was sticking out over the spring and this retainer bar. Lifted up the mesh covering, and behold, the left side of the foam on the cushion popped out of the retainer bar. The right side was fine. The cushion seems to get its "cushioning" from being curved and stuffed behind the bar. I put it back in identical to the right. replaced the covering, and there was support in my left cushion once again.

I don't know if there is something torn in the foam that is causing it to pop out on that side, but it feels like a new seat. If it happens again I'll have to go to the dealer and see if they have a better solution. My rear was going numb because the there was no support. Also when I put the foam back behind the retainer. The material filled up and stopped bunching.
