    My super Z has the suspension seat which is real nice but I'm also thinking about getting the front suspension ?

    Anyone tried the front suspension ? :usflag:

    I just put a set of flex forks on my super z yesterday and they do help the ride a bunch. Don't know how well the mower will mow with them on only time will tell.

    "Don't know how well the mower will mow" What do you mean by that ?

    Surely it doesn't pop up / down like a car with bad shocks, does it ?

    How about it sales Rep ??

    Husqman,

    How big of a job is it to change to the flex forks ?

    I just picked my new Z-Master up yesterday. I got the Deluxe Suspension seat and man I am impressed with the way it supports me. I am a big guy too (250lbs). I just noticed the other guys talking about "Flex Forks", I think I will look into those too.

    Where are you getting your seats from. I wouldn't mind paying a higher price for a good seat but I havn't seen one I like yet. The stock seat is about $375.
