The coil over / shock, was found online. I'll have to dig into the PayPal account to find out exactly where it came from. If I remember correctly, it was around $40.00 shipped to the door. It made a WORLD of difference. It also has an adjustable preload so no matter who is on the seat, it can be set to their weight. No more bottoming out on the big bumps. Also was able to mount the seat further back on the original springs, to gain some much needed leg room. If you like this mod, wait until you see the tiller that is going on the back. It required a bit more work and some thinking as to how to get it all up and functional (still not completed) but well on the way.
Thanks again, for the warm welcome.
