I will tell you... If it ever does happen (and I sure hope it never does), it will scare the Bu-Jesus out of you! Mine happened when I was going pretty slow approaching the mailbox to get the mail. If it would have happened to me going 20+ MPH, it could have been ugly. Now that I know about this, I will definitely make an effort to make sure those U-bolts are tight.

No... When I purchased the lift kit from AllSports, I also purchased their heavy duty leaf springs. I think they have 4 layers.

Jake, as long as the UBolts are kept tight, you will be good. If you'd like, try contacting Allsports and see if they will do the same for you. You and BH00 have the same lift

It's amazing to me that that thick of a bolt can stretch, I guess that is a lot of weight and pulling they go through though...

Hmm, kinda surprising that Allsports would put their name on a lift they don't make...

I purchased the Club Car DS A-Arm lift kit. At the time, I didn't realize that it came with a 2 U-bolt system for the rear. If I would have known that, I would have purchased the Super Sport kit. It only costs $10 more than the standard A-Arm lift kit. Now, even though AllSports is sending me the rear Super Sport components at a discount, I'm still having to pay more than $10. Could have saved myself about $50. Seems like this is going to be a learning process...
