    Seat Spring Upgrade for 1025/1026/X-Series Tractors

    KBOGH/BoltOnHooks LLC is proud to offer upgraded seat springs for John Deere 1025R/1026R and some X-Series tractors. These are an upgraded version of the "PSRUMORS" springs made famous on the GreenTractorTalk forum. The new springs are rated for 130 pounds each (260 pounds per pair) and offer a performance increase of over 25% from the original OEM springs, and a 10% increase over the current ones.

    Known X-Series models with the LVA16309 Suspension Seat Platform these will fit: x575, x728, x748, x758

    Some history on the seat springs:
    -> The original OEM springs (JD Part #AM153100) were rated for 103 pounds each (206 pounds per pair).
    -> The PSRUMORS upgrade replacements were rated for 125 pounds each (250 pounds per pair).
    -> Sometime in late 2013 thru mid 2014 John Deere updated the springs (JD Part #AM145323), they are now rated at 118 pounds each (236 pounds per pair). These springs are still being used today by John Deere.
    -> November 2015, KBOGH/BoltOnHooks LLC introduces upgraded springs rated for 130 pounds each (260 pounds per pair).



    Specifications:
    • Plain steel finish, ready to be painted
    • Rated for 130lbs each, 260lbs per pair
    • Installs in 15 minutes or less!
    • Simple installation with only a 3/16" allen and 7/16" wrench
    • No modifications to tractor
    Made in the USA

    Let me say, I have been using a set of these upgraded springs for a few hours now and they are the cat's meow. I've put on a few pounds and needed just a little bit more support and these are just right.

    I'm at 255 lbs and these springs keep me off the bump stops and are nice and smooth.

    Good work Kenny

    psrumors; I guess their is note a way to put 2 of these springs side by side for say on a x475? big jim just one set for me would probably just bottom out-right. I hate to say this, but I'm right now at 375lbs.

    Some guys have screwed one spring inside the other and then pried them into place. If the x475 has the same suspension setup as the 1025 it might be an option.

    Hey Kenny

    You are a beacon of hope for fat scut owners everywhere. I'll be ordering a set.

    The order page on your site is a little unclear. Does "$30 each" mean per set of two or per spring?

    Seat Springs Installation Video

    We got our seat springs from KBOGH.

    We decided to put together a video to help with installation.

    These springs are definitely heavier than the previous batch of psrumors springs (which I also had...thanks psrumors!). I think I'm gonna appreciate them!
