    I have a 2554 SD and a yard that have some rough spots...not terribly rough but it can be bouncy in some spots (It is an old pasture). I bought flex forks and checked by tire pressure and that smoothed the ride out considerbly but I have still have a reoccurring problem with deck jumping back to transport position from the height set pin. Anyone have a similar problem and have suggestion on how to fix it. I gets pretty frustrated having to watch the deck lock all the time and when it jumps out to have to go back over area that were not mowed.

    Not much you can do there if its bouncing.
    You can ease up the tension on the deck lift assist springs that will make the deck "heavier" and hopefully ease up on it happening.
