I have some 1-1/2" foam with a firmness and compression of 1.8/45lb.  Would that be typical to use on diningroom chairs?  I have hardwood seat bottoms and the foam has completely given out.  I just feel the wood.  I have some time and wanted to replace the fabric today but wondered if I should be using a more firm foam for such a hard wood seat?

Thanks!
