I'm pretty sure the 4 wheel brakes are for commercial HD applications. Short of carrying 800lbs in the back I don't think 4 wheel brakes are needed

Yes. They're not standard equipment. Not all carryall vehicles have front wheel brakes. They're extra.

Got a new problem. Went to slide the hubs on new jakes spindles and it wont fit. It seems as if the jakes spindles are 1mm thicker than the stock spindles. Am i missing something?

Did you order a lift kit for standard or metric hubs? Standard hubs have packable wheel bearings and metric hubs have sealed bearings. You have to make sure you ordered the correct lift kit or your hubs won't fit. If that's the case, you'll either need new hubs or different spindles. Post pics of the spindles and the hubs and I'll help you.

The hubs have packable bearings. I packed them full of grease before I discovered they wouldn't fit.

I'm guessing the best option at this point is to order new front hubs that will work with the lift kit. Any other suggestions/do you have what i need for purchase?

Take the dust cover off of the threads of the new spindle. That's what I need to see to help you identify it. If you need hubs I can sell you some, but first let's figure out what the problem is.

You need to call Jakes and see what they suggest you doing. The threads are NOT metric, they appear to be the correct standard threads, the same as the old spindles. However, by looking at your pictures, the new spindles look to be about an inch or so shorter where the hub would go. Is that the case? The metric hubs are shorter than the standard hubs, but they don't use standard threads. If Jake's is wanting you to use metric hubs with standard threaded spindles, they should have put something about it in the directions. I honestly have no idea what you have, but I'm very interested to find out. Let me know what they say.

They are a inch or so shorter, and i called jakes earlier today, and he basically told me i need the kit that calls for silver dust caps regardless of what year the cart is. I already had the front lift kit bolted to the cart before i realized the hubs wouldn't fit. I think the simplest solution is to get new hubs. Tahoe, If you would please PM me the price of 2 hubs that would fit. I may need a few extra items as well.
