    Get the full suspension seat (not the add on springs) and mount it on top of the rubber iso-mount platform. It helps tremendously. Any Michigan seat should fit (that's who makes Exmarks full suspension seat and most other manufacturers). I have one I got on Ebay for about $380 but I has Toro stamped into the back. Northern tool sells one for about $350 or so but it's black. My dealer game me a $200 credit on the standard seat so I was out about $300. Doesn't hurt to ask but $550 is the going price. They are worth it.

    Not to sound TOO dumb, but what's the difference between a "suspension seat" and the one that comes with the Lazer Z?:confused:


    I am looking to replace the factory seat on an old Lazer HP and don't want to spend $350!

    I believe our lazer Zs seat just sits on rubber bushings, a suspension seat will have springs, shocks, more travel and better back support

    can you just buy the suspension base and use the seat that came with the mower. I ask because I really like the seat on my lazer but wish it had the suspension.
