    Default Need quote for air ride seat, 809 series 5 ton

    I would like to see what the options are on replacing my semi-working spring seat with an air ride. My 1972 M817 rides the bumps with utter abandon to what my backside has to say about it. The average drive to our closest equivalent of Home Depot is 5-7 hours depending on traffic. Just to get the idea of the “bumps” I mention, the last twelve miles to our house takes about 2-1/2 hours.

    I have a new HEMTT air ride seat that I was going to install in my 931....sold the truck before I did the install. Lots of people on the forum have used the HEMTT air ride seat in other model trucks. And it's already green.

    Seat is in Atlanta $200
