Seat help / questions .. [copy and paste from another thread]

got another type question on this subject of seats ..

my S/O has a bad back and the wrenching has taken toll on her riding with me, never had suspension seats so looking for info .. do you guys think a suspension seat will offer better support for the back ?

I'm going to ad a reverse handlebar type grip to the seat base [facing forward] so she can grab it to support herself from the wrenching of the trails. She is vertically challenged [5'1" +/-] so also need to ad a seat slide [suggestions here also] so she can get her feet to the fire wall to push against.
suggestions ???? those long 100+ mile rides over very bad terrain are about to stop if I can't get it resolved.

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

You will find a hand full of aftermarket seat manufactures.. They all offer a different feel. It's like buying a new car you need to check it out and set in them. I have BS Sand seats and they are very comfortable but they are tight in the hip area.

e-bay has had some of the factory arctic cat high back seats pretty cheap they were blems but were not noticeable when installed.

Super comfy. Everyone that sits in my prowler loves them.
The seats have real nice side bolsters that keep you from moving all around.

I did not get mine from that seller.
I got them on e-bay from 1catmaster they were 199ea. and 120 to ship usps priority.

I would assume the actual cost to be closer to 120.00 to ship to you as that was actual shipping charge.
They were shipped in the factory box.

Seems to be same total price though as he is selling for 150ea and I paid 200ea.
