oh boy.
club car has the best front end in the biz...
somethin is bent check the clevis ,the rack ends .
toe should be at 1/8"

the whole setup you are refering to is made so the less expensive parts are bent for people like yourself that can't handle the high power of a golf cart and drive it into a tree .

Smile Re: precedent steering help

Hey Guys, Check for bent brkts. Upper or lower brkt. on the spindles. Also, if hit hard enough, the leaf spring could have shifted or bent. Club Car does make nice stuff, but unlike Dr. ******** claims, they did have some wear issues on the '04's. Have someone move the steering wheel back and forth slightly to check for excessive wear. Note: The easiest way to set tow on these carts is to clock the rack & pinion ( Steering Gear ) at 12:00 and adjust the tie rods from there. Turn the wheel all the way to one direction. Then turn all the way to the other dir., counting the number of rotations. Divide by 2 and that is 12:00. (center). Tow should work best at 0-1/8".

Hope this helps... ( I'm glad I never became a DR.)

70scout800, Take what you will out of the comments so far!

Basically the carts are an assymetrical geometric design, EVERYTHING should be the same on both sides. Unbolt the 'bumper' on the front so you can get a clear head on look at the steering. Both sides should LOOK the same. ie the tie rod ends and their rods that go into the concertina looking boot should be the same length/angles, the lower 'D' arms should be flat and look the same...not 1 angled up and the other flat or pointed down.

The other thing to look at is the centre bolt adjuster in the middle of the spring. Firstly make sure it is not broken or loose. If this is broken the cart will try to 'crab' but you might find a 'floppish' tendency to hang when turning hard right or left.

Lastly I am no expert....but DRpuff5 got some of it right....CC make a simple front end that bends simply....we as humans can 'sort' it out when we bend 'em!

If you can't see any differences my last resort would be to sit and have a few beers until something LOOKS crooked and then straighten it!

Puff--You must have a tough time staying humble in the glow of your perfection. Now do you have any constructive ideas for repair or have we seen the extent of your knowledge?

thanks to you guys who have given me some good ideas! as far as Dr. Puff- a peter, you can see i didnt reply to his first response b/c pepole like him must have problems far deeper than me runnin into trees!!!
i am still having the problem with my steering, i can line it up and it will be fine for a while and then it gets out of wack with no resoning. i am thinking of going to the a-arm front end. has anyone else done this? also is anyone runnin 23 inch tires? i am begining to think maybe the tires are too much for the suspension. thanks for all the help
