    I have really bumpy lawns and have demoed a bunch of different z's. I was wondering if anyone has put a suspension seat on an IS ferris z? I think that it would make for the ultimate ride on rough ground. What do you think? Joel

    Haven't tried it. However I have brought one aspect of this to the attention of another member...

    Unlike other Z's, Ferris has an elevation bend in their flip-up seat mounting rails. You could fabricate a new one to fit, making it flat as far back as possible. Essentially a suspension seat could be added without increasing operator ride height...

    There are no seats suspension or not that are better than the seats that they have. Just my opinion.

    any one else, I think it would ride like a caddy or at least like my F350;) Joel
