Default rubbing problem need advise

when i turn hard left my tire rubs tie rod. Its a club cart 95 upgraded to a 2006 48volt. passenger side tire bottom leans inward a little, could that be enough if i corrected it to straight up and down to not make it rub.. this is a hunting buggy with a frame lift in the front end.. not sure what kind of a lift it is.. i have three new tie rods and tires off cart now is it a hassle to change rods and if so change all three or two of them... thanks in advance i be waiting and whats the part called that locks both rearend tires pulls the same... part number if possible thanks

I could swear I posted in this thread yesterday Here is the deal toogood4u....
we need some pics of this lift and tires and frontend situation ... you just haven't given us enough specific info for us to know what you are really up against? Pictures would help immensely
Many things factor in:
type and size of lift kit
size of tires
Rim offset
and tire pressure
just to mention a few ........ you do know that the tie rods are adjustable, right?
You can screw them in and out to adjust the wheel attitude.

Yes spring could be worn out (weak) or bent? The rear tie rod that connects the 2 wheels together can be turned one way or the other to lengthen or shorten it. Loosen the lock nuts on both sides and turn the rod with a vise grip or whatever. This adjusts the toe in. You want a little toe in. Be sure to tighten up the lock nutswhen you are done

I agree and if you want your steering wheel to be straight you may want to unhook that tie rod end from the wheel and do your toe in adjustments.Then when all is done you can adjust that steering joint.Like Scotty said make sure you tighten the jam nuts as this is critical.

Its just a front leaf spring,make sure the rubber bushings are ok and your wheel bearings will roar when they are out of gease and need replacing.As far as that rearend lock up I have only seen them through club car and they might be a little pricey.

If the wheel bearings and races are worn to the point of making noise it is easiest to just replace the hub unit list is $37 and the bearing is $10. Or you can pull the old bearing out and take it to a parts house to have them cross reference the # and set you up with a new one? The rear end locker is just that, a posi traction conversion. That might be available through Nivel now that they acquired a few new companies
