    I have a 1999 60" Lazer Z. I bought it used and am having problems with the deck height. I have to raise it almost all the way up to get the blades 3.5 inches off the ground. Then when I hit a small bump the deck jumps up in the highest spot. Where should the chains be mounted, inside the frame or outside, inside deck bracket or outside. I am also having issues with the deck cutting shorter on the discharge side when Im on at an angle. New blades all the way around and spindles are all O.K.

    replace the 4 chains that suspend the deck... that can easily account for 1-1 1/2 inches .
    the chains stretch and wear thin where they are put together. thrust me , ive been there and the chains are $3 each at the dealer and let them do it so the deck can be leveled as well, hope that helps you
