Attached a couple pics - never looked under a cart before, but this isn't stock, is it?

After some more research, this is apprently not an uncommon problem and most people solved with new HD rear 4 leaf springs, so I am thinking of doing that - anything I should consider or any better ideas?

Thanks

only thing i can say about the HD springs is you might want to ask about the ride when its empty back there......from the feedback i get and some reading here its a really stiff, jarring ride when the cart has no one on the back........since i don,t have any need for a rear seat other than looks i don,t have one on any of my carts.....so i don,t know this 1st hand................8)

I put them on mine...not because of a rear seat (I don't have one) but because with the increeased speed I needed the stability when cornering or taking sharp turns at higher speeds. It's stiffer for sure but I can't really tell a difference when cruising around the neighborhood. There's a helluva difference on the cart paths, but the cart paths aren't designed for the higher speeds:oops: Beers flew everywhere:lhmo:

Yeah, I'd rather grind down my tires and frame than spill a drop of the golden stuff!
