Default 2008 ram drivers seat

I have recently bought a Ram 2008 and love it. I have a problem with the drivers seat and need some help. The back of the seat is frozen in one position and can't get it to move. Also the bottom of the seat, on the outside portion, it feels like the foam padding is gone. Any ideas?

my 06 had a problem with both seats freezing up but luckily for me when the drivers seat froze for good it froze in the position i wanted it to lol, but what i would do to get it to move was pull the lever and hammer fist the seat lol it would break loose, this is by all means though not the proper fix. i pulled it apart and tried to see what was wrong but couldnt figure it out, if i was you id find a junker somwhere and just pull that gearing mechanism off the seat and replace it with yours.

I have not had to experience the seat freezing, mainly because the seat only moves when I let my gf drive down the road or help teach my little brother to drive.

The outside foam going though.. I have noticed that happening with my seats, and pretty much whenever i get out of the truck I try to pop it up.. with little luck.

As Albinofury stated, Find a junker with a seat and take from that, probably the cheapest and easiest solution.
