Default 85 DS club car block and shackles

Does anyone know if I can do a 2" lift on a club car using a block on the front and longer shackles in the back?

Would a 2" block work without having to replace anything on the front suspension?

A long time ago I had the same thought .... I built it and after much struggle finally gave up on the front end. The steering and alignment was adversely effected and I never could get it right ??? But - that's not saying somebody else might

A friend of mine has a cart with 8" shackles at the rear of the leaf spring only. The leaf looks stretched but does work for the larger tires. The front is normal.

I have done 1" in the front and didn't have any issues.
