Default Anyone know if I can buy a new armrest and/or seat?

My truck has captains chairs in the front and the drivers side armrest is worn down a lot. The fake leather is cracked and has a hole exposing the foam and the cracks are scratching my arm. It has also been broken from leaning on the arm rest too much but I was able to fix that. The seat cover and foam is also worn down and a spring is poking out the back of the seat. I would like to get that replaced if I can. I know I could take it to see if it can get reupholstered, but I would like to see if I can get a new armrest or seat and seat cover first. Does anybody know of someplace I could get one of these?

Coach trimmer & shops doing Upholstery Services can restore your seat as good as new.

you could switch the passenger cover to the driver cover and the driver cover to the passenger cover. then the worn sections will be on the bottom. I did it to my fabric arm covers. get a couple of produce bags from the supermarket and slip them over the foam. it will make installation of the covers easier.

I used these guys for replacement seat bottoms through eBay. Top quality and match oem perfectly. They have arm rests for 60 each.
