    Default Suspension Seat Isuzu NPS crew Cab

    Hi I was just wondering if anyone has fitted a suspension seat to an NPS Crew Cab , though the ride is good id like to have something that would deal with more rough roads . I've searched the web and came up with Stratos 300LTSSS but i'm unsure they have a crew cab fitment model .
    Any help would be much appreciated .

    I am pretty sure there is an Isuzu kit for the Stratos seats, as ATW fit these (as they do on the Fuso). If you cannot find anything, give ATW a call and I am pretty sure they will help you out, especially given that you have been one of their customers.
    I should add... I have the Stratos seats in my truck and I have never been impressed with them, plus they cost a lot of money for a pretty cheaply built seat.
    My attempt to build something to go somewhere else...

    Hi Trakka,

    I've just being thru this myself.

    The only aftermarket suspension seat that fits these cabs, afaik, is the Stratos, also known as KAB to some suppliers (KAB own Stratos).

    The part number for the front passenger seat is 904LH (LH just means the adjustment knob is on the LHS but either would fit these cabs, just in case you find a 2nd hand one), these are the same as that get fitted to landcruisers.

    When I bought my truck 2 years ago Stratos did not have a fitting kit for the passenger side, ATW have their own kit, as I wasn't sure if I wanted to change the seat I bawked at the $2800 all fitted/certified price from ATW and just bought their fitting kit (2 rails and bolts/plates) approx $140.

    I bought a new seat 2 months ago thru TJM for $1940 but couldn't get the ATW mounts to fit, turns out I needed to order the slide rails as well from Stratos, the mount rails bolt to these, another $280. At this time Stratos queried TJM why I only wanted the slide rails as they now offer a full fitting kit for the passenger side of an Isuzu. i didn't bother asking the price as already had my other ones.

    My engineer is happy with the ATW set up.

    I have a full set of photos from ATW which show the mounting points if your interested, just PM me your email.

    In hindsight I should have just got ATW to do the lot.

    Cheers Steve

    hi steve , i only put the seats r us link up for 4X4 TRUCK as i thought it might help him out, i have never used them, i just saw their add the other day. when i bought my 2007 single cab it had 2 stratos seats already fitted and blue plated. all i had to do was redo all mounts that were used as it was a **** job and rattled and squarked. hopefully they will be ok when i finaly get it on the road

    Apologies if this doesn't relate directly to op. But it is a question about aftermarket seats. Are the only options for Fuso or indeed Isuzu, new seats along the lines of Stratos Recaro etc or has anyone fitted say for sale of example Commodore or Celica or whatever seats to replace the church pews?? Very interested in Queenslanders who have achieved this. Understand that engineers and mod plates may be involved. Any outlets that do these on a regular basis...aware of ATW. Thanks, Neil

    I changed seats in a Coaster bus, to electrically adjusted Lexus. Has to be a chain of fasteners of correct size and "backing plate" of correct area from body, for seat and seat belts. Yes, Qld engineer involved and mod plate. Constraint for Canter with suspension seats seems to be headroom. Shouldn't be a problem for conventional seats.

    I found the original Canter seats reasonably good. Well matched to steering wheel and pedals. Good back support for me. I changed to suspension seats to reduce jarring from suspension (post singles, pre parabolics).

    $2k for a seat seems a little OTT

    I searched the net for about 6 months and found a new pair of stratos suspension seats on gumtree with the canter mounting kit and new mortel seat covers cost $1800. I also saw many single stratos seats sell from people who put the original seats back in to sell there truck. Grays on line have a lot of council gear came up and these seats pop up now and again I have found they sell for about $600. so if you are willing to wait and look you will find them at the right price.
    PS I have found the the seat mounts seem to change your driving position and make long trips bad on my back so I have changed mine. firstly I removed the back seat plastic to get the seat to go bake another 20mm and raised the rear of the seat by 35mm so I did not feel like I was in a sitting in a hole.
