Re: How can I make seat more shock absobent

I just put a Gator seat on my GT225 and while I was at it I installed a couple of L100 Series seat springs in place of the rubber "springs" that came on the unit. Much more compliant set up.

These are the ones I have used and that are shown in my earlier post. Anything comparable should work.
