Drivers seat back is bent back from the top right corner about 2 inches out of correct vertical and lateral placement. Problem is that I cannot sit properly while driving. Driving position is with right sholder leaning back. I have seen this on others and wonder if there is any fix other than cutting a piece of foam to correct the driving position.

Welcome to the forum Johnfred

My guess is that you have problems with the seat cables which have allowed the seat back to come out of synch. You can either have a mechanic replace or modify the seat cables, or you can do it yourself. Here is a link to a write-up on a modification to fix the cables.
