sometime in its life, someone probably changed the front spring with an incorrect one

How can that be? All of the parts dealers have only one spring for sale. They claim it fits all carts from early DS through late model Precedents. Some have a heavy duty spring listed.

Because there are some aftermarket springs that claim they fit Precedent and DS's (which they don't) and other generics that people will just "modify" to make work when they have nothing else. I have ran across mismatched sets twice in my experiences. Remember good old Mother Necessity...

I had this same problem and I had to take apart my entire suspension to figure out it was a couple things. In the A-Arms, one of my internal metal sleeves was bent between the bushings, allowing the A Arm to wiggle when in place. Secondly, I had excessive play in slightly worn bushings in the front leaf spring, and yet another bent bushing medal sleeve. I bought a bushing and sleeve kit that had all the parts to change out all front end bushings and sleeves for $39 at my local Club Car distributor, and that seemed to help tighten everything up. My Clevis' on both sides seemed really worn so I replaced those as well since they were so cheap (roughly $8 each). Finally, after talking to the local Club Car distributor, I noticed my cart had 2 washers that were not in my manual, a Brass one in between the spindle and clevis, and a stainless steel one on top of the clevis under the nut. I removed those and the spindle moves nicely and everything is tight. You will need to do another toe adjustment afterword to make sure everything is straight, but the cart drives so much better now and no more negative camber and excessive tire wear!

I don't see anything listed as an a-arm in my parts manual. Could you send a picture of what your talking about.

I've ended up with the same thing. About an inch on each side.
A arms and clevis next I guess. I replaced spindles, leaf spring and bushings.
