Front Seats for '85 300DT: need advice

My front seats seem shot. This is my first MB, so I'm not locked in to what the seats are supposed to feel like. But the springs seem shot and they wobble all over the place.
It's not completely unlivable, but I'd like to find out what I would need to do to make it right.
Slowly but surely, I'm bringing this car up to near perfect and wanted to find out what I'm in store for when it comes to these seats.
Buy new?
Find used ones?
Fix the ones that are in it?
Put newer year seats in it?
Please advise me. I know some of you will have advice for a newbie like me.
Thanks.
Jay

there are some fixes if you want to go that route. search pool noodles. also injector lines have been drilled and used over the broken springs. You could also troll the yards for seat springs, just the bottoms. They are interchangeable left to right, so you could find 2 pass. side and make it work. you can buy new, but they are steep
