Default Club Car Lift systems

New to to this cart stuff. As "NO NO" knows I got other issues with my 96 48v regen cart that means I gota bring home for shop time. With that said the idea of a minor 4 to 6 inch lift came to mind. I see their are two types, Spindle and a frame. Spindle seems to lose tight turn ability with larger tires and A-frame looks real easy to twist and bend while trailing off road. I love being able to out turn most cart in a hard turn and would hate to lose the ability but I would hate being towed out even more!
Whats the best way to go to keep tight turning radius turns (stock) and I really don,t want to drive over my front end after a good night chuck hole.
Most of are runs are at night in a 3 to 8 car group. kinda groomed trails through mud,brushand gravel. We have already had springs break and small fires under seats broken ribs all the good stuff. so tough is better!

Spindle lifts don't cause a loss of radius; frame-cuts done either. It's the large tires and widened stance. Frame cut lifts don't twist any more than the stock frame does, which is virtually none. I would recommend a Jakes long-travel for the best off-road ability and handling/security.

You can get a Jakes spindle lift thru tungpo1 or Tom@Dixie Sales.

I don't have any trouble with my Jakes 6" spindle. I thinks its the same if not better. I can't comment on the others as I have not tried them.

Man, "No No" do you live for the web? is it mounted on the dash board? Anyhow, thank you both. So what is the advantage or draw back? Wider stance and bigger tires seem like a must to a point. but if you cant turn from that last tree you become a body and fender man. I have noticed some Arm lifts make the wheel base longer is to clear the wheels like stock? I really enjoy 80 degree turns gets you out line when the cart in front is hung up.

I've never appreciated the Z-Lifts.....

I'm a HUGE fan of Jakes lift kits... Just because of quality of work..
