Default Seat foam

81-84 sport seat foam..should I replace it or just steam the foam.. the backs are in great shape the bottom bolster will need repaired or replaced.
How well does steaming the foam work and last ?
New foam is around $550. Complete set or $200. For the bottom bolsters.
Sorry for all the questions

Replace the foam!

You are spending xxx on your seats, the last thing you want are excellent looking seats with limp foam.
