Ferris Z w/ suspension seat

I have really bumpy lawns and have demoed a bunch of different z's. I was wondering if anyone has put a suspension seat on an IS ferris z? I think that it would make for the ultimate ride on rough ground. What do you think? Joel

Haven't tried it. However I have brought one aspect of this to the attention of another member...

Unlike other Z's, Ferris has an elevation bend in their flip-up seat mounting rails. You could fabricate a new one to fit, making it flat as far back as possible. Essentially a suspension seat could be added without increasing operator ride height...

There are no seats suspension or not that are better than the seats that they have. Just my opinion.
