Default Re: Rear springs on a 2005 EZ GO PDS

Like the idea of the $65 springs but I am worried that they are maybe just too much for my cart. I want a smooth riding cart for around my yard. Unless I am wrong the 4 leaf springs seems to be for those that carts that have the rear seat and can haul 4 persons. These are probably also good for those that lift their carts and do offroading type driving and do not mind the rough ride. So I want to think these 4 leafs will give me a much harsher ride as my cart will generally only have one person in it at any one time. So the 3 leaf springs seems a better choice in my application unless someone can convince me otherwise. I'm looking for more of a Lexus ride than an all wheel drive Jeep type ride. I'm in no hurry to buy replacement springs so I'm open to suggestions.

They have been using plastic pieces in between leaf springs (on the very ends) for many decades now in cars and trucks. My 2002 Silverado has them in the rear leaf springs. The original 2 leaf springs in the rear of my 2005 EZ GO have plastic spacers between them on the ends. Possibly newer golf carts at golf courses do not squeak because they all have these plastic spacers between the factory stock original springs. A common trick in the 20-30's on higher end expensive cars (Mercedes Benz etc) was to grease the springs and wrap them in leather. Those with gas golf carts would probably never hear any squeaks because of the exhaust noise. Some with electric carts with bigger tires that do more of an off road type driving may not tend to hear any squeaks and may not even care if they can. I want a nice quiet ride around my yard. In my case I think I should use the springs that have the plastic pieces in them. Costs more but for me it is probably worth it in the long run.
