    Does anyone on here have a suspension kit for the seat of their Cub Cadet TANK? I'm suppose to have one put on tomorrow. I have a 2004 TANK M48 and the ride can be pretty rough at times. How well does the kit help? I'm hoping for at least a little improvement. Another thing, does the kit add height to the seat and if so how much? I sure wish they made some flex forks for the Tank. It's built like a tank but at times it rides like one too. Thanks.

    Pull the two pins on the front axle and the mower will have a more flexible ride.

    They're pulled but thanks. The moles have taken over the last couple years.

    Yeah those gopher hills and mole trails make for rough riding. They are bad again this year in one part of the yard out in back.

    How much air are you running in the front and in the back tires ?

    They're at their limit, 10 pounds I think. I need to take some out. Maybe go to 8?

    You can experiment with those tire pressures. I am running 10 in the rear and 12 in the front. I did try 8 in all four one time but it seemed too wishy washy .

    JKUCSMA: Where did you purchase your suspension seat kit and what was the price ?

    I got it from a local dealer. He's charging $200 installed.
