Default Lokking for 3" lift spindles for my 97 CC

I have a 97 CC with a 3" lift. Z bracket up front and rear spring over kit, along with 22x11x10s. The rear springs are the stock single leaf type and they're sagging.

I recently purchased and installed rear HD leaf springs. Well little did I know they would pick the cart up 3 more inches in the rear. So now I have a cart with a 6" lift out back and a 3" up front. The rear end now looks alot better with 22s, it had a stuffed look before. Needless to say it looks odd being 3" higher. I'd like to get the front to match the rear.

I figure all I need is a set of 3" lift spindles to level up the cart....no other parts needed. Not looking to spend $300, just want the spindles.

So does anyone know where I can buy the spindles and not the whole lift kit?

Wow! What kind of springs did you use? The standard Club Car heavy duty springs only lift it up about half an inch.

I agree, about 1/2 and inch at most. Where did you purchase your springs. Something's not right.

Well, the springs themselves were over an inch thick with the extra leafs, so that's an easy inch by it's self. I measured the ride height at the rear hitch, before was 16.5", now it's 19.5"

Then they don't flex like the original ones did, but they do ride nice, a little harder but thats fine with me, taking corners are not scary any more.

I'm completely happy with the leafs, just want to level the cart up.

I picked the springs up on Ebay for $95 shipped. Here's a pic of them from the listing I won. Couldn't post the whole listing, it wouldn't show up.

listing is removed. Seriously something is off. My HD springs have 4 leafs and they are at most 1/2 higher. What brand of lift did you purchase?

He did say the springs were sagging! 2 1/2 inches though! They would have to be almost flat.

Not sure what brand but they came from everythingcarts.com. But the spring pack is about an inch thicker than the stock single, since it's got the spring over axle kit it's going to add an inch no matter what.

So now there's the other 2" to explain. I'm guessing the extra leafs make a stiffer pack with less squat.

Look at the pic in my last post, I changed it since the old listing won't come up.

But anyway, the rear springs are perfect. They give the [rear] stance I was looking for with 22x11s. I just want front 3" spindles to even it up. I really don't want to go with a 6" Z bracket(modifying my current 3" Z bracket)

Figured it'd be easier installing 3" spindles. Wouldn't have to mess with the steering or have more of the frame up front showing.

BTW, you guys are replying faster than I can post, which is good. First forum i've been on with fast responses like this. Thanks.

No, they were not sagging that bad. I'd say they were about 1.5" from being flat when they were on the cart.

I could tell on corners, fast starts and quick stops that the springs were flexing or s-shaping pretty bad.

Regardless of how much they were sagging, now you replaced new springs that should of basically brought the car up to normal or 1/2 higher which would be acceptable. So sagging springs do not play a role since they"ve been eliminated. Are the springs over rear blocks? Can you take pics of the setup?
