Default About 2inches

How hard would it be to lift a cart about 2inches all the way around? What would be involved?

Lifting the front would be easy with a 2" steel box tubing or plate between spring and spring mount plate along with 2" longer bolts needed.
The rear as I remember might be a little harder as normally the rear springs are moved from bottom of differentail to top and this if I am correct raises cart about 3"-4"??? Im sure some one that has done a 2" lift will confirm or give you another solution?

How would that affect linkages and stuff? I am just trying to get a very small lift because I put 12in wheels on my cart and low profile tires, but when turning sometimes the tires will rub. I am trying not to spend a fortune, so I figured I would ask you guys and gals because I am sure someone here can tell me how to do it without buying a kit.

Depending on the offset of the wheel you might just be able to install a heavy duty front leaf to hold the cart up a little higher.

We are running the 14's on this cart and they only rub on a far left turn

I just put a heavier spring on the front of my cart to level it it lifted it right about 2 inches. I would think the heavy duty rear springs would lift the rear just about the right amount again.
