If the cover is still good,you may consider carving out the middle of that 30 year old foam and replacing it with newer better stuff.
I got mine from a junk yard 09 wrecked impala rear was cheap like me.
Much better foam and more comfortable ride.
I tried the gel and air pads.They also worked well but did add a bit of stretch to the ground.
