Default Shocks for Club Car DS with a lift kit

Yes I am going to put a 6 in All Sports lift kit on my 1999 Club car DS & I want to replace the shocks, but do I use factory shocks or ones from a auto parts store.

thanks

some lift kits come with shock extenders to use the stock shocks .. so i would say factory is good

My 8" A-arm kit came with a plate extender to use the stock shocks.

The shocks are more of a damper. Stock ones will be fine as long as they are not leaking and you have resistance extending and retracting them. Definitely going to need extensions or a plate extender.

The shocks I used were Monroe. They were for a '80 AMC pacer.

I looked up both part numbers and you got the yellow ones from Advance.

The other part number from O'Reilly or Monroe is a blue shock.
Monroe 31176 Monro-Matic Plus Shock Absorber : Amazon.com : Automotive Monroe 31176 Monro-Matic Plus Shock Absorber : Amazon.com : Automotive
or

Is there a difference other than place or purchase and color?

Many 70s and 80s Chrysler’s use this shock so I used a 1974 Dodge Monaco for a comparison and all sources said either part is an exact fit.

$15 to $20 each seems a lot better than $40 or more from a cart dealer.
