Default Front springs

The front end of my 2000 EZGO is lower than the rear..not by much but noticable. The front springs are bowed in favor of the low front end. Is this normal? If not would a single leaf like I have seen fix it? I will try to send a picture.

If you have hd springs in the rear they will make the cart sit higher in the back. Do your front tires scrub at any time?

But you don't have an Ezgo...... Get one, then I can help
just kidding maybe try putting coil overs on the front or coils that bolt on over the shocks. Not sure about the clubbers but it works for ezgos
I used the coils that go over the shocks to stiffin and raise the front about an inch on this cart

the tires never has rubbed. I really just noticed this when setting next to another ezgo (later model than mine). I found out since that the steering box mount changed position in 2001.5 and my car is a 2000. I think that is why they have more room from the tire to the fender. The axle on the later cars are even larger (thicker). Anyway when I get enough money saved I will fix that problem with a lift kit and larger rims and tires.

The 2001.5 moves the mounting point on the springs to the top side of the axle so to speak. This gives the newer models around 1 1/4" more lift in the front

Is there an easy way to raise mine that small amount? Just the front.

Its because your trying to use a location that is on your PC...you need to upload the image as an attachment or upload to a picture hosting site. Here is what your code looks like.
