I just realized no one has answered the question Sorry visions of your wife's ..... well you know
Club Car has ALWAYS had a leaf spring front suspension with about 2 inches of travel in their front ends, this design has resulted in a very stiff ride...Shock absorbers can do a little but will not make the difference you are expecting. A long travel suspension kit or a different brand of cart would be my suggestion...Good luck

(Wiping tears out of eyes after reading all this)

Something you can try is removing one of the "jounce bumpers" from the top of each front shock shaft.. This will "free up" about another inch of travel in the front suspension.. To remove the bumper, slide it down from the top of the shaft slightly, using a sharp knife cut almost thru the rubber bumper, then using a pair of pliers rip the bumper from the shaft.. Be careful not to nick the shaft with the knife as this may cause the top seal in the shock to leak..

If this doesn't help, it may be time for a new front spring..

I guess I should have known better! You guys are just like me! I would have requested pictures too. Not going to be easy to get pictures. Not saying I won't try. Maybe it would be better to just get her a tighter hat.

I see the potential for a whole new line of accessories. Square tires and rims and a dash camera... Make your cart the hit at the local homecoming parade
