'66 bucket seat springs

Has anyone ever replaced the springs on the back of a bucket seat?
Classic Industries, Impala Bob and Year One all use the shorter back spring that fit up through '65. It turns out to be about 2-3" short. Any suggestions?

I would take it to an upholstery shop and see what they can recommend. The guy I took my seat to said that besides the cover, he will fix anything that may be broken once he takes the seat apart.

Bucket back springs:

The correct springs for the 1966 backs are showing correctly on Classic's web site:


The 1966 and 67 use the same body and springs.
