Default Installing Aluminum vs. Steel Rear Seat

Is there a benefit to installing an aluminum vs. steel rear seat? I have been told that it is better to install aluminum and that the steel rear seat can cause a Club Car to become unbalanced and tip over.

I have put two or three steel rear seats on club cars without any problems.

I have never seen a problem with steel rear seats and we have installed hundreds. I have had problems with 2 heavy buddies that want to bounce up and down on the foot rest while I am the only one up front trying to drive!

The Non-Driving Sales Droids and kiddies at the place where I used work didn't tip them over except when a moron that thought he was on The Dukes of Hazzard tried to jump a ditch at the back of the property. Every cart there had either a steel rear seat or a heavy duty carry rack that was built in our shop.

I honestly wouldn't believe that it was the steel rear seat that made the cart they are talking about tip over.

I would believe that too heavy a load, or an unstable one, being carried on a rear seat would tip it over though!
