Default Re: 2009 precedent lifted, front suspension question:

David, I believe that my front springs are single! I'll check again this weekend when I am at the coast. That may explain a lot.
No, you didn't accept Facebook request. I'll try to send again.

It should definitely be a double leaf spring.

Just checked; it is a 2 leaf spring. Drive the cart, and it definitely has a sway to the front end. Trying to figure out if this is shocks (which are new cc shocks), tires, pressure (currently 30lbs on 22" knobbiez), alignment, etc. etc. can't let my kids drive it at this point. Would welcome any thoughts.

It shouldn't sway too bad. It's naturally going to be more top heavy after the lift, but it should definitely feel comfortable. What are your camber and toe measurements?

Turns out it was the toe measurement. Brought it back to 1/4" and drives like a new cart! I have 22" knobby tires, and was running with 30lbs of pressure. Technician dropped pressure to 15lbs. Cart now runs 20 mph, instead of 25. What pressure do you think I should use? Thank you everyone or all of your help with this issue. I was ready to sell it!

Glad you got it resolved. As for the pressure, it all depends on the tire. What kind of tires are they?

22" Sahara Classics. Knobby. They are probably for off-road, but this cart will be used 99% on pavement. Thanks.

I'd love to know why. That's ridiculous.
