Default Making a "z bracket"

I was wondering if anybody had some good dimensions for making a z bracket to lift my club car about 8 inches. Thanks in advanced.

Its a 98 club car and I want to run 23" tires. I was wondering how much of an angle I needed bc I didnt really want the front tires sticking to far forward on the cart. I want to be able to clear the tires but not look funny. Pictures would be great. Thanks.

I was also curious if 1/2" aluminum 2 3/4" wide would be strong enough if I bolted the 3 peices together to make each bracket or would it be better to use 1/4 steel and weld. Reason im asking bc I already have a peice of aluminum laying behind garage. Sorry so many questions but I just want to get all my ducks in a row. Thanks

This is what I did and anyone who has ever done a Z-lift does them. Its stronger than the frame itself. I have a 2000lb winch on the front and have winched it up the side of a hill I couldnt drive up and it held fine. Ive beat on this cart for over 3 years now and never experienced any tweaking of the frame. I actually returned this cart to stock and sold it recently. I am going to reuse these Z-brackets on a new project. Its an argument among ClubCar owners whether to cut the frame.http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/attac...1&d=1353890395

Thanks for the picture. You did a good job making that. It looks sweet. I guess I would be better off finding some plate steel and making one solid piece like you did instead of using that aluminum. What size tires are you running with that lift.
