    Anyone know of any good shock absorbing seats, I can find for a husqv 52" Z? Really rough ride, I dont know how much longer my back will hold up, cant afford a new mower at this time.

    The full suspension seat on the exmark is nice, I think the suspension seats on most mower brands are the same...the one with the dial for your weight and lumbar support, you know? I think they are in the neighborhood of $500.00. They also have a kit t turn your existing seat into one I think those are like $300.00.

    Take some of the air out of the back tires. That should soften up the ride a bit, but it may also change the way it cuts.

    Good luck

    I'm not sure if this will help you, but I have good luck with leaning forward slightly and keeping my back off of the back of the seat. You could try it while waiting on your new seat.

    Take your wallet out of your back pocket as well, it messes up your backs alligment then with the bouncing compounds the problem. I ended up with a pinched nerve because of it, this come from the chiropractor.
