Default Extended shackles on Club Car DS

Hello,

Thanks to the help of many of you, I've decided to pu on some extended shackles on my DS to give it a little lift. To that, I'm wondering how long the OWM shackles are typically? I bought some from another member off here, and he said the ones I was buying were 6.5", but these are almost 6"! Are these normal?

Also, in this procedure, I only replace the rear set of shackles, right? Not the ones on the front of the rear leaf springs (under the batteries?)

nnmsgst,
Yes you only change the ones at the rear of the leaf spring. The front of the leaf spring is your pivot point.

I don't know if the ones in your picture are factory, or not. But I do think you have heavy duty springs, I think the factory spring was a single leaf.

I could be wrong, but the ones pictured look to be stock shackles,
I don't have this cart anymore, so I can't measure them for you, but these are stock height shackles...



The extended shackles I have on my gasser are 7" hole to hole!

I'm in the process of installing these extended shackles. See the pic below. Do I have to do anything to compress this spring to remove the OEM shackles? Once I pull these bolts won't the spring straighten out preventing me from realigning the holes?

No. Lift the frame/cart until the wheel just touches to floor, then pull your bolt out.

Thanks to all for the help. I installed longer shackles and a 1" front block lift from TahoeDawg in about 30 mins. Easiest upgrade ever.
