Default Re: Rear Leafs

Remember that time I referenced the DIY Golf Carts video on installing new leaf springs where they instructed that it was now OK to remove the rear shocks with upgraded leaf springs?

Remember that time I thought the reason they instructed as such was bc the added height to the leaf springs made the shocks just a wee bit short?

Remember that time I ordered 3.5" shock extensions bc, after more research (and listening to many of y'all), I felt that I needed to put the shocks back on?

Remember that time that I installed the shock extensions and they made the shocks WAY too long?

Remember that time when I realized the reason the shocks were too short in the first place was not because of the added leafs... but bc the cart was on jack stands?

Yeah. I'm an idiot. Let the flogging begin.

Anyone in the market for a set of 3.5" shock extensions?

Standard length shocks are back on there, along with the Medium Duty Dual Action leaf springs, and a brand spankin' new set of 12" Fairway Alloys Flex wheels with Low-Pro tires. Took the fam on a short cruise tonight and rides like a dream.

I will say, though, that the springs were super squeaky over the weekend after only a week on the cart. Put the shocks back on today and MUCH less squeak in the springs now. Gonna put a little white lightning or something in there and should take care of it.

My son and his wife just moved down here. He said that he doesn't mind the old folks so much. He was a trophy billiards player up North, but gets his butt handed to him a lot by seniors down here. Not all the time, but enough for him to respect them.

I'm running the stock leafs on mine along with a set of Harley coilovers (on the softest setting) in place of the stock shocks and it works great. Hauls 4 people great and the ride is not jarring. Just another option for people. I tried a two link with the shocks on the firmest setting but this just works out better. I had the HD leafs and it would rattle the fillings out of your teeth.

Well I broke the front spring traveling around the lease last Saturday and I have bought a HD one to replace it. I also bought some dual stage/progressive springs for the rear. They came with new bushings that aren't rubber. Some sort of Teflon material I believe.

He is now in the top ten down here. He gets a lot of grief about his age though. He's only 52. In my neighborhood, I am the youngest male in the hood. I guess age is all relative to your environment.
