mike,
I understand to leave well enough alone but physically speaking, what possiblly could happen. Do you really think that the spring steel could break?
just curious....

Yes. I have seen more than 1 broken front spring on a CC.

Wow! Alot of great info right here. I am at this cross-roads now as I try to figure which way I want to go. I don't need the top long travel ride, but want better than stock. Which long travel kit would I NOT need spacers on the rear to make both axles track the same? Or should I say, I want the same track of both axles. (trailer issues)

Sorry OP I hope this will be quick as not to hijack too much

But there is another element which makes an A Arm which rides as a stock cart would..... That is what I am saying While kit B has an a Arm ..... it in no way is a "long Travel"
scotty, i agree with what you are saying about true a arm suspensions. i would also like to see some video (speed verified) of you sipping champagne at 30 mph in any cart of your choosing while skimming a disced field full of ruts. i have seen a lot of high $ supensions racing in mexico, but not to many people sipping champagne while flying across the 'washboards'. sippy cup is not allowed, it has to be a fluted champagne cup.

i wait while you get your video together.

cutting your spring isn't a good idea. for offroading some people re-arch their springs with heat to make them softer, or stiffer. try finding an off road fab shop that does suspension work......maybe they will be able to help you get a little more out of your budget font end.
