Default Jacking a car by the axle

Can jacking up a golf cart by the axle bend it? I've done it with autos before and not had any issues, but I recently had my '05 DS lifted and now there's a bounce in the back. I've tried rotating the tires and putting different ones on and still hasn't solved it. Before I had the cart lifted by a dealer, I jacked up the rear by the axle for something I was doing under there. Wondering if that did any damage that is now showing itself with the lift kit and stiffer suspension, etc.

WELCOME! Maybe someone else will elaborate more on your problem, but the simple answer to your question is no.

By the 'axle' I am assuming you mean the axle tube? THe axle is hidden from the eye. The answer is no. Likely you are dealing with a bad wheel or tire .
