I just stumbled on this. Nowhere did I find it in the manual or anybody mentioning it online so I thought I'd share for the other 1023E owners out there looking for a softer ride. I'm still working on the bracket to replace my seat with an actual suspension seat, but for those that may be satisfied with just a little softer seat suspension, give this a try.

Seems there are 3 possible positions for the seat bumpers. Farthest away from the seat hinge gives the stiffest ride-

Moving the bumpers closest to the hinge allows the seat to have more give.

Not a whole lot better, but it is an improvement.

There is also springs you can get from JD that will directly replace the bumpers...I don't have the part number with me though.

The adjusting of the seat bumpers/springs is the same as how my X360 is done. Nothing to write home about, but there is a little difference between full backwards and full forwards.

The JD seat spring part number Ken refers to should be M154605. $7.79 each.

Given that the rubber bumper shown is the same rubber bumper used on the Gen-1 2-series seat (2520/2720/2032R), I wonder if the replacement spring would work on those tractors?

The retainer is different, so they will float around in it...unless you fab up something to hold them in. For $16, it's worth a try.
