Default Shorten steering column ??

I love my cc. It it my first cart, I have noticed that most carts are made for short people. I'm 6'3" tall. It is a little tight for my height. But will have this cart forever. I sat on a exgo last weekend and could not belive the diffrence. There was so much more leg room. I really liked the fact that the steering column was a lot shorter also. is it possable to shorten the column or could you make a exgo work on a c.c. ??

A Club Car Limo steering column will fit. We have them on our web store. They're in the Front Suspension and Steering section of the page. A limo column is about 2 inches shorter than the regular DS column.

That would be the way to do it.

Take the nut off, thread it back on till it stops by hand, put a square piece of 2X4 on the nut, put your feet on the top edge of dash, knees behind the wheel with pressure, whack block of wood until it pops loose. Took mine about 3 whacks...

A video of this would be nice...
