    When you order the suspension seat from Hustler do you get the whole thing or just the suspension part. I only need/want the suspension part.

    Exmark is selling the suspension part for $200 in case anyone cares to try and retro fit it. They have two versions. One that add suspension (no seat) and one that has suspension, recline, ect.

    The Hustler suspension seat is a one piece unit.

    Also, please note that what eXmark is selling for $200 is not near what the Hustler suspension seat is.

    The $200 eXmark part is an Ultra Low Profile suspension base only.
    It only provides 1" of suspension travel.

    Sure, anything helps, but the 1" of travel combined with a really nice, thick and cushy seat still would not be near the Hustler full suspension seat.

    If the extra money is really a big issue, please PM me for another much better suggestion before sinking $200 into the eXmark part.....

    When is money never an issue? I want something better without killing the bank.

    I would be interested in the "much better suggestion" also.. you can send an email to my profile address..

    I just purchased a Fastrak 20\52.. the only thing it is missing is the suspension seat... Low tire pressure helps, but suspension would be nice.

    I've got a lot of bounce in the seat. What is the lowest rating for tire pressure?

    I would not run your tires any lower than 8 to 10 psi.
    There is a spring set available for FasTraks, this helps out on the bumpy lawn's.
