    Who has added a suspension setup under a regular Z seat? How do you like it? Any comparisons vs the upgraded suspension seat?
    I think the added supension will add alittle more height to the seat vs the upgraded sus. seat.
    Thanks

    if you can afford it, get the full Michigan suspension seat. Its lower profile and rides better.

    On my Toro Z's one has suspension seat other has suspension kit. The kit is better than no suspension at all, but not as good as the full suspension seat. My Ferris I.S. is even better with no suspension seat, I wonder how good it might be if I put one on it:confused:

    In fact, most mower companies offer this seat.

    The suspension upgrade is OK, much better than without. The springs will wear out eventually and it wont work as good after a few seasons so sell it with the mower. Adds a few inches to the height which takes a bit of getting used to.
