6" A-arm lift +2" body lift... is it safe?
Bought my '07 club car ds for hunting. Came with a 6" a-arm lift and 23x10x12 tires. after adding 3" wheel spacers for more stability... the front tires rubbed. added a 1" body lift which consisted of longer rear shackles and a 1" spacer block for the front... tires still rubbed! Made a copy of the front block at work and that took care of the rubbing. Now my question is has anyone ever added lift like this and is it safe? I have tested the cart where I hunt and it seems to perform fine. I'm just concerned that maybe it is too much stress on the front leaf spring.

You say its a 2 inch body lift? What you mean is you put a 2inch block between the frame and the front leaf spring right? If so and the block is wide enough and long enough as in the same dimensions as the stock plate, then yes it will be fine. I have a Jakes 2inch extension plate on my 97. My plate moves the entire front end out forward by 2 inches and is about an inch thick. No problems and got rid of my rubbing issue too.
I would double check all nuts for tightness.
