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

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 :bigthumb:

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?

Not to speak for Kenny but I am 100% certain that is for a set (two) of springs.

Note the box next to it

Includes Two Unfinished Springs

Sorry for the confusion, I will update the website later. They are indeed sold as a pair.

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!

Kenny:

This looks like great talent to sign up for advertising. Excellent presentation timmarks.
Yes, they are already under contract, all it cost me was VIP status at Cheeburger Cheeburger | All Natural Angus Burger Restaurant :mocking: If their fame continues I'll have to add in 5-Guys next :lolol:

But seriously, Tim and Katriel went above and beyond with this video (and the last one on the Diff Pedal extension), I can't express my gratitude enough to both of them.

Yes, but you are still the Kennyd Fan Club Captain. It may pay better than being a video talent. :laugh:

When I first got my 1025r I noticed I would bottom out the seat on bumps. Now I am about 225#.
Swapped in the KBOGH seat springs and commenced about an hour of loader work. What a difference!
Thank you

Thanks Kenny!
