I have the one made for the 900 series. It is just like the one for the 997, which the guy in this thread installed-

Here's mine. It makes a huge difference. I don't like JD's full suspension seat either. It is way too hard. the OEM seat and the kit make for a pretty decent ride-

Im thinking the seat platform is a bit different on the 930m than on your 950A.not completely sure. I should be able to make something work.

Growin & Mowin-

your kit is identical to mine other than the mounting hardware and bolt locations.

They should be identical. The M models I looked at were when comparing them to some NOS A models late last year at a local dealership. I was specifically looking at the seat pans. The pan for the M or R models that come with the factory suspension seat are different though.

Ridin'.... Did your kit come with the black sheet metal thingy in top left of my picture? I didn't see anywhere that would go on my 997, what is that piece for?

Nope, I didn't get that one, but I did get a lot of extra doodads that I didn't need. These kits are kind of a one size fits all type deal, and they have extra parts to make them work for variations in model productions, or different models altogether. Like I said before though, your kit is slightly different than mine anyway due to yours being the 997. That thing may just be a piece for an earlier run of 997 than you have.

The one im getting I think has the ISO rubber mounts under it.Im not sure how that will effect the fit of the insert.Did these kits raise the height of the seat very much? I was told they really raise you up in the air but from the pics it doesn't apper to.I did measure the seat holes they are aprox 11 inches wide and 11 inches deep.
