Default Back axle doesn't seem straight after lift

Club Car Precedent '06

I installed a 6" drop spindle lift and the back doesn't seem to be straight. There is more of a gap between the tire and fender on one side than the other. Can you post pictures of the gap on yours? Not sure what happened. I tried to re adjust today, and I got it a little closer, but not perfect. Also, are the tires supposed to be closer to the front fender part than the rear part? That's where I'm measuring, I can for two fingers on the driver side and three on the passenger side.

Measure center to center from front to rear wheels on both sides and if both are the same then your body is off just that much.My tires were so close that the front lower part had to be trimmed just a tad which wasn't any big deal.

Sounds to me like you put one of your leaf springs on backwards. The springs don't have a centered pin like DS springs do. They're offset by about 3 inches I believe.

I didn't remove the leaf springs completely when doing the install. Was able to take off the back only and slide the axle over.

That is actually the side that had more space between.

The jakes lift blocks are directional with the short side towards the front of the cart, make sure you did not accidentally put the block on that side backwards.
