    I thought I read somewhere that someone made a front suspension kit for an Exmark lazer HP...is there any truth to this rumor? If so, who does?

    Well, I sure wouldn't be one to say it doesn't need it.
    In my opinion, the whole front of the 52" Lazer HP needs re-working.

    However, what I'm betting is that you are thinking of the add-under suspension kit you can get to go under your current seat.

    Is that offered by Exmark or after market? And, how much? ($$$)

    Yep, but I would keep my $200 bucks in my pocket and look elsewhere for a full blown suspension seat. The $200 is just too much for 1" of suspension travel and what the dealers want for the full blown suspension seats is just rediculous.

    Do you have a suspension seat, the $200 kind? I bet not, or you wouldnt knock it. It is well worth every penny.

    Nope, because 1" of travel ain't gonna help in my terrain.
    Tried a deluxe suspension seat?
    I bet not, because if you had you would regret the money spent on the kit.
    If you dig around, you can find these for less than half what the dealer wants.

    lawnman scott knows what he is talking about. If you haven't tried the suspension insert then you don't have a clue about how well it works.

    If the ground is too rough for a suspension seat to help then the mower is being used in the wrong application.
