Guess what I am saying is are they here right now, taking the time to explain to you the differences? Or were they the ones that have the cheapest price for that kit?

Still depends on the make of cart. If you start with a shock design (Yamaha) you will get a longer travel, and a better ride, with an a-arm lift. Nothing compared to the long travel though......

OK - I am new to this so thanks for the explanation. A-Arm that we are discussing still using leaf springs to keep the suspension "together" while the long travel is a true (in what I expect anyway) A-Arm lift. Does the long travel push the tires out alot, alittle, none, ?/??

The key word is 2 actually words, "long travel" about 5-10 inches depending upon the manufacture... The stock spring MAY give 1.5 or 2"?

I guess my question is on the stance of the cart - how far out does it push the tires - away horizontally from the center of the cart - While the cart is still, no travel, etc.

The Strech and Terra toys push out 3" each side. Jakes is 2" wider. All Sports DOES make an A Arm kit that does NOT make it any wider. We have those listed, but not the original lift in question...

Here is a better All Sports option

Sorry - I can't get their site to copy and paste. I don't want to insert the kit from my website and "spam" you my products!

Thanks Mike - That link didn't work for me, but I am assuming it went to the AllSports Long Travel.

Mine's an 02 so I am not sure the Allsports will work. I will start looking though to see what a true A-Arm (long Travel) will run me and if it's worth it for the price increase. I would like to keep the stance of the cart the same if possible.
