Question lowering 97 ezgo

Newbie here, I have a 97 electric ezgo that Im interested in making some mods on. So far I've installed the recessed lights and a flip down rear seat. Id like to lower it some before I do a paint job. I dont want to "slam" it, just lower the stance a bit. Whats the best way to do this without dropping big bucks???

don't know about the ezgo but on Yamaha we just relocate the shock mounts front and rear to drop it a little. welcome to BGW

How much does that affect the ride? I've got a yamaha rhino so the cart wont be off-road, just crusin' around the streets and campgrounds.

You could try to find air shocks for the front and back, gonna be tough finding the right ones though.

Just make some blocks. It should be pretty simple for the front and rear.

I agree with dero, I will be making some blocks for my 97 also when it gets to the point of being finsihed, Just to close some fenderwheel gap. Airshocks will just raise you, They would be nice espescially for the rear when you have passengers.

Napalaz, I have actually done this to get a picture a few weeks ago, here it is. Not drivable.
