Several issues to mention. First is that the instructions do not mention that the OEM seat deck and seat plate along with the OEM seat plate/deck rubber mounts will not be re-installed. Second, after installation, I did not notice a great deal of difference between the before and after ride comfort of the mower. This is after several adjustments to the shock absorber itself and the positioning bracket setting. So maybe not worth the investment.
Shock helps with bumpy yard, and very easy and fast to install.
Not at all pleased with this product. Installed on m RZ and first use it broke both spring pins on the bottom shaft. I replaced those with cotter pins. Then the bottom shaft and the bushing comes out of the shock. E-mailed Spartan for help and got nothing back. Very poor design!!
