Hey, just put a set of heavy duty springs on this old '96 DS. Question is do I shocks? The old ones are too short and I'm really not seeing the advantage to replacing them. Rides good, just for putt'n around the resort.

The shocks are more of an absorber more than a shock. Some people elect not to use them, especially if you're not planning on hauling a lot of weight in the back.
You could get a shock extender kit that's needed when using HD rear springs:
Or you could do like I did and install a set of Monroe shocks on the rear:

Shocks are to keep the cart from bouncing up and down when you hit a bump. They do not make the cart ride smooth over the bumps, they just keep it from bouncing up and down after the bump.
