Default Lifted club leaning

Ok new issue.... I bought my club car ds electric lifted with the all sports 10" lift. When I bought it the drivers side rear spring was worn/ sagging. I replaced it with an original spring...non heavy duty... Lean was fixed! Now I just ordered and installed 2 new "medium duty" springs from cart parts plus... Now I've got 3/4" lean back on drivers side that's very noticeable..... Any help on why it's leaning again?

Probably axle wrap warping the spring. I've seen springs shaped almost like an S due to axle wrapping. What is the exact procedure to acquire 10" of lift in the rear?

The springs are brand new. It's the 10" lift made by all sports.

I think it could be the orientation of the lugs on the tires. Those babys could potentially give you 1.5" difference I would bet.

Not sure why there are 2 threads but I post again here so the admin can delete the other thread.

Probably no help for you but my cart was also leaning to the drivers side when I bought it and it had an all sports 6" kit. I went with the HD load springs for the rear and it fixed the lean. The ride is stiff, but I was able to drop the back to 5" and it easily holds 400 lb of rear passengers without rubbing fenders. When I removed the original springs you could easily tell where the lean came from.

Is it possible the shock on the drivers side is too short with the lift installed?

Yea shocks are fine I swapped them today...I may just take these off and put my old ones on. It's driving me nuts with this gangsta lean. I contacted the guy that makes these he said I could send them back. And he could send me the helper Spings to put under my original ones...
