I dont remember if you had replaced the batterys or if they were what you got with cart? Give them a full charge and then you can tell better about operation. Check voltage on each battery after charging and waiting at least 1/2 hour, then use a digital meter and post all readings including total pack voltage.
Before you condem the a arm lift I see that you got the one with 3 leaf springs, Take one leaf out and then see what ride is like. Often they will ride much better and also allow suspension to settle down and start to move like it should. Another thing is you have very high tread tires that will be normally rough, so let some air out and see if this will help also? Any time you run this setup on hard ground or pavement you must expect it to ride rough until you get up to a higher speed.
Your whole suspension-tire combo is for OFF ROAD USE ONLY.

what kind of charger do you have?

the ones i had shut off when they were done charging. when i first got my new trojans they charged over 12 hours!

voltage will tell when they are done, there is some info around here somewhere maybe try searching a bit. i don't remember where i saw it:(

nice looking cart!

You need to have a automatic charger to fully charge batterys, If not you must use a hydrometer with single float that is temperature ciorrected and when fully charged batterys will show 1.277 at 80d. A digital meter will help but isnt as accurate as hydrometer.

Ok guys thanks for the continued help. the charger is a kent and it does not shut off by itself it has a timer in hour increments and thats it. a pic will show you it exactly. As far as the batteries they are as follows.1) 6.4 2) 6.4 3) 6.4 4)6.2 5)6.5 6) 6.5 total battery power after a day of rest is 39.1 on my multimeter.

I would use a hydrometer to maintain batterys, its slower but far more accurate. By checking the last battery ( NEGATIVE END OF PACK ) you can get by with only checking one battery.This is how all batterys were tested until auto chargers came out.
You could use a digital expanded scale unit that can be mounted into dash etc? Even at that you will have to wait at least a 1/2 hour after charger is off to be correct.
