Default Folding Rear Seat Recommendations forr 96 Club Car DS

Looking for recommendations on a folding rear seat kit to order and install, from those of you who have completed a 2 seat conversion:

ease of install durability are important.
would prefer one that easily can bolt on the safety loop / hitch.
I will plan to upgrade to HD rear springs

I have white seats now and will likely stay with them (they don't get hot in the sun, but I have to bleach them frequently!)

Thanks for your input!

(this is what the cart looks like now minus the overhead console -- still a re-work in progress)

Nice Cart! I think there are a number of choices out there. You really need to surf the web and pick one out that has the features and quality you want. I went with the All Sports seat and I like it very well. I think if I did it again I would get a double flip seat so I could access my motor cover easier.
Another thing you may want to consider (if you have not already) is that your tires look pretty close to the rear fenders. That extra weight might cause a rub. HD springs might set you right, just something to check into. Good luck with the upgrade! Post pic when you are done.

Thanks - I have been working hard on it. It was a donor from my father-in-law, left for dead under the house. No one wanted to put batteries in it and then ended up needing an MCOR upgrade ... tires ... and then I was addicted.

Good point on the double flip consideration.

The tires rub as-is at higher speed on corners -- I am already planning on the HD springs in the rear. The front wheels are still rubbing a bit so I think I'll go with a 1" plate lift -- I have a Jake's wheel extension plate/kit but it requires cutting and not sure that is what I want to do. (I really don't want a lifted cart - I want the sleeker low profile look).

I will check out the all-sports kit.

Good to know, thank you sir -- any experience with a 1" lift plate for the front? I get some slight rubbing even after removing the horn / high/low switches. I would like to put the horn back to be foot controlled!
