I was told they were pretty stable.
Ill try to find a link or pic of one, but they are all over eBay for sell.

I think trademark carts sells or makes em

Now what's exactly wrong with this kit?
I'd honestly like to know what sux about this kit.
I've never used that kit so I don't know how good or bad it may be. Somebody else is gonna have to chime in on that one.

Stamped steel, that is how they can sell them so cheap. Stock is made better than those but they do serve a purpose and will work. Just how well I don't know.

Other way around actually, better ride with the A-arm all the way, in this case you get what you pay for, the design is much better, the spindle kit are for those wanting a lift but can't afford the better method of lifting, either that or they don't care as they may be using the cart in a way that isn't practical to spend that much Ie a farmer that will put the cart in some abuse.

All good stuff.

I have a new problems. I ordered a Jakes 6" double a arm kit, however my Turf 2 has front drum brakes and the kit doesn't have the brackets or anything to handle those.

I have 2 questions. Is there a kit that allows me to keep the front brakes, if not should I just remove the front drums and only rely on the the rears? thoughts?

thanks again,

I don't know the answer to that question but my two carts only have rear drums. I'd guess it was put there for a reason so I'd assume that you need them. I think a sponsor could help you with the proper lift kit for your application.

I don't believe any kits are offered for front drum brakes, at least not that I've seen in my years. You can always add the front disc brake kits with proper clearance. I did a spindle kit the other day, and the stock size wheels wouldn't clear the arms. You made the right choice with a double a arm kit though, as it allows for Camber angle adjustment as well as toe alignments. If I were you I would call Jakes support number and ask them about the lift for front brake equipped vehicles

I called jakes and they don't offer a kit that has front brakes with the a arm kit. They do have front brakes on the spindle kit though. Any kits out there with front brakes on a a arm kit?

I don't believe anybody makes an A-Arm lift kit that will utilize the factory front wheel brakes. We usually remove them.

Tahoe, would you recommend I just remove the front brakes on my turf 2? I don't really ever intend to put a full payload into the bed so I'm just wondering if the rear brakes will be sufficient for stopping power.
