Default Steering drifts on 2015 Electric Yamaha Drive

I have a 2015 Yamaha Electric Drive that steering drifts to left or right when going over rough terrain that vibrates the front end. Feels like driving a boat over a sideways wave. The cart was recently lifted with a 6 inch Rhox kit and new 23 in tires and rims. Took it to dealer and they aligned steering and replaced front shocks because they said it were causing lateral play on bumpy roads. Problem still remains, although maybe a little improved. Any thing else you suggest I replace or adjust? Thanks.

Too much toe in

set it to about 1/8 to 3/16 inch and that will fix that.

ETA: What you're describing is a classic symptom of too much toe in. I know the dealer said they adjusted it but I'd check that first thing because what you're saying is exactly what too much toe in does. A '15 cart won't be needing any new parts so don't throw parts and money at it to fix it. Toe in

IMHO

Can't speak for the Rhox lift, but on Jakes kit's we set the toe in at zero. Much better control then.
