Ok guys i finished the front lift kit and i have a few questions about it. Is the front end suppoused to be like rock solid it barely moves with me jumping up and down on it. Is this normal? Also From these pics does it look like the steering box and braket are put on correctly? It seems a lil hard to turn ?

It looks like from this setup the give is a function of the stiffness of the shocks.
Did the shocks come with the kit ?
And just guessing I would say the higher the lift the less give you would want .

As for the steering it should not change a lot until you get the Big tires and wheels on !

The shocks are factory size shocks. The suspension does not have enough travel for the shocks to even be effective! It might move 1/2 inch at most. And the reason i am asking about the steering is this cart came to me in pieces and i put it back together with out any instructions, or help just want to make sure steering components are all in correct places.

Sorry,
That steering box is completely different than mine, hopefully one of the experts will chime...cause I am not one. I remember on my stock shocks they seemed pretty uselss as well, they may have had an 1" to move...that's it.

That steering setup is completely different then either of my CC's. been wondering about the looks of that since yesterday. Someone with more experience then me needs to look that over. I do have that same lift on both of my carts, do not over tighten the bolts, they do have to articulate some.

Hmm maybe thats part of the issue I tightened it down to much? So if you stand on the front bumper and hop up and down yours moves more than a half inch? Hopefully! lol *** cart just what I needed another headache and project in the garage!
