If it is the stock spring, your local CC dealer should have it.

As long as all the holes line up and the arch is similar I don't know why it wouldn't . Is it sold as a Club Car spring ? If there are no holes you might have a hard time drilling them, your spring may be different but I tried to drill holes in one a few years ago and it seemed harder than mild steel.

BACKWOODS remember that If you dont know brand of after market lift kits can use anything from stock springs to special springs made only for that particular lift kit, so if a stock spring wont work you are in real trouble??? If you have a spring manufacturing company close by they should be able to match to your old unit? Remember that a stock spring has a special center hole to take the camber adjustment bolt and has special curve built in for travel.

it is a club car spring, im not sure about the lift, do you change the factory spring when installing the lift or do you re-use the factory spring

I think it prob depends on the lift. I just got an A - Arm lift kit, and I didn't see any spring in the box, of course I stopped looking when I realized that the spindles were wrong and had no brake mounts for the front. But I think my kit reuses the stock spring, most likely designed to do so to reduce cost. As far as having a spring made, I have a spring maker locally who makes leaves for trucks and I bet if I took a broken spring down there they could whip me one up for cheap (they have made duplicate springs for trucks for me in the past). I bet you have a spring shop near you. Me, as long as the spring you have is as thick or thicker than the one you broke, just slam it in there and take it for a spin, you should know pretty quick if you like the ride or not.

I guess Old Mec beat me to the punch on that last post. Let's back up, what kind of lift do you have? If it is a spindle lift then it is probably a stock spring. should be a cheap fix.
