I used two pieces of 1/2" thick flat scrap steel to extend my front axle. Drilled 6 holes in them and bolted them on. Wasn't sure how it would affect the steering geometry till I tried it but it works just fine. Been running the cart that way for two years now. No apparent issues but I don't run it very hard. Your results may vary..

Just make sure you use thick steel for the plates and also hardened bolts. I used the 4 long bolts that came with my lift kit and the short ones are #5's. I looked for the longer leaf springs they put on some older EZGO carts before I did the plate mod. Might as well been searching for leprechauns.
