Question What type of lift system is on this 96 CC?

Still trying to find out more about this 96 CC Powerdrive Plus 48v I purchased a couple of months ago (until I joined BGW I did not even know that much!). The cart is lifted with 22 in tires. Can anyone tell me what type of lift system this cart has - and let me know any comments or opinions if applicable...













Many thanks in advance!

It's a Z-Bracket lift similar to the factory lift, only higher. The factory lift doesn't have that much bend in the brackets in the front, nor does it utilize a spring over axle design for the rear. This is aftermarket, although I'd like to know who makes it. I like it.

Several Companies including Jakes used to make that lift. As I remember the front looks like Jakes but I dont remember the rear lift parts built like that? From quality of Z brackets I would guess Jakes?? I have seen several after market Z lifts using only one light steel or in one case a aluminum plate on each side rather than thie double plates shown ( ARE THEY ALUMINUM? ) which is far superior. The only kits like this I ever installed were CC and Jakes and I would have rather used spindle lifts rather than cut the frame anytime because there really is no going back.

Thanks much for this info. I guessing you guys see that I have some work to do under this cart - but it feels very sturdy and solid - a good base to work from and to build up.

OLD MEC - the Z plates are some sort of steal though I'm not sure of the grade - but they do not seem to be a real heavy gauge.

How can I tell how many inches this cart has been lifted? Is it 4 inches or 6 inches? Is there a specific way for me to measure?

just measure the distance between the top lifted frame and the top of the bottom frame. That difference should tell you how much was lifted.

Looks like the front is 4 inches... see photo below. Guessing the back is the same as the cart seems level?

yeah, the back should be 4' as well. I would measure from the top of the spring to the bottom of the axle. I think the top of the spring was originally ubolted to the bottom of the axle. See if you get 4 or 4-1/2 cause of extra leafs on HD springs vs 1 leaf stock springs.




great photo!
