Could have saved myself about $50. Seems like this is going to be a learning process...
The $10 difference is because it has "Allsports" on it. That lift can be found for $199 from a site sponsor

Ok, I get it now. I was looking at Allsports website and couldn't find the Super Sport kits. They're under the 'Brand New!' tab. I think for now I'll just stick with what I've got and check the u-bolts monthly for these first few months...

And yes, it seems like it's always a learning process!

Yeah... I wish I would have known about this site before I purchased and installed the lift kit. I actually found out about this site when I posted a question about torque on a firearms site called The Outdoors Trader (they have a thread for ATVs, UTVs, golf carts, anything with a motor, etc.) and a member told me about BGW. Lots of good, helpful information on here.

... and here is why a 2 U-bolt rear end system does not work well on a lift kit! Problem now solved with a heavy-duty 4-bolt system. Gonna send these photos to AllSports and show them what happened.

I want to thank everyone who helped me identify this problem! This is a fantastic site with a great group of people!

That is a great visual for the tremendous forces the axle is subjected to on a lifted cart.

That 3rd picture clearly shows why it is called an axle twist.

Sergio... You were the original one who pointed this out to me on another thread. Thanks so much (even though I questioned this and thought it was the controller)! You were exactly right. I learn something new on here every day.

I know... Right? I didn't even have them on my cart for a month. And I don't even put my cart through that much abuse. I take it on my property, which has moderate terrain at best. And I don't think I've hauled over 100 lbs. on the back bed. Overall, I'm fairly mild on the cart.
