Default Jakes lift fix

Someone may have already posted about this but I thought I would share. I bought an 06 Club Car Precedent a few weeks ago. It was completely stock, so I purchased all the accessories and went right to work on the Jake's lift kit. When done, I took it for a test drive and it felt like the wheels were about to fall off. After close inspection I noticed that there was about 1/8 in gap between the king pin and the bracket that it attaches to. I thought I did something wrong or didn't receive all the parts.Well come to find out there was a design flaw. The fix? I placed a water hose washer on top of the king pin and attached it to the bracket. No more movement!

Ah. I think this is the same problem I'm running into. I have a Jake's 3" spindle lift kit and if I go over a slight bump, it sounds like the king pin is hitting against the new spindle assembly.

I put my jack under the front center and if I quickly lift up one of the tires, the king pin is hitting against the new spindle assembly. I can see that there is about 1/8th (maybe more) of a gap between the king pin and the spindle. If I lift up the tire, the gap is then between the control arm bracket spindle. The spacers are there but I guess they weren't big enough?

Thanks,

DGC

CMAC I'm not having that problem at all. Do you have a 3 or 6 inch lift. I would call Jakes just to make sure. Any chance you can provide a pic of that fix?

Dont shade tree this fix, front suspension too important call Jakes and get proper fix. They like to hear of any problems and always willing to come up with fixes or explain what was done wrong.

Ok. I will give them a call tomorrow.

Just as a side note: the original post was a year ago.

Thanks,

I just got off the phone with Jake's. It seems that with the Precedent, they stopped using the wave washer on the king pin. They had a customer with a similar issue and they used the same wave washer that is used on the DS.

I am going to see if my local Club Car dealer has any in stock.

In case anyone is interested, the CC part # is 1016389.
Thanks,

The one thing I forgot to ask: does the wave washer go just under the control arm bracket on the king pin or does it go under the spindle assembly on the king ping?

Thanks,
