I used 1/8" steel plate with a washer (2 total) between it and front seat bracket, and longer M6 x 30 mm bolts with their own 2 smaller washers...

Hi GraciesVersys09,

You could maybe try adding thicker foam onto the seat.

Here's the 1/8" steel plate, longer bolts and washers used. It helped a lot, but I might reshape the seat with better foam as well.
