Does the pedal go all the way down or feel loose or do they lock up as soon as you tap the pedal?

I was able to release some tension on my brake cable after i installed a rear lift by loosing up the finger screw thingy under the foot brake. Might need to play a bit more with it though since when I brake it tends to come to a stop with some minor shaking rather a smooth silent motion as with stock setup. Not sure if its the 10" wheel and bigger tires or just uneven brake cable movement. Still better then the whole rear end violently shaking coming to a stop when the cables were tight.

Pedal is high and tight, acts like I am jamming on the parking brake when pedal is applied. ( but I am not, had my wife verify)

Did you adjust the pedal screw underneath the cart like I told you? This might help ease off some tension.

It sure sounds like a twisting axle to me!
But, there's no harm in trying what waverider said first!

Check to make sure the spring perches on the axle are parallel with the ground. Adjust cable as needed via the 1/2" under the cart below floorboard.

Hi! I had same exact problem w/mine a few months after I did a 6" lift. The U-bolts that came w/ the offshore cr__. Twisted and would let the axle turn and this pulled tight on the brake cable, when you look at it from under neath it, looks good check it close. Good luck Joe 100

Turns out the axle is twisting when braking. Had the local cart mechanic at the golf course where I live verify. He also said the bushings are worn and the springs are weak. My question is, can I replace the U bolts only. Seriously, there has been no problem with this cart for 5 years until it was lent out. Thanks Ray
