Default How to fix bad wheel alignment!

So Ive seen alot of people on here who have lifted there carts and are wondering how they can fix the alignment. My cart is a G16E with a 4" economy lift. Who ever owned it before me put coil over air shocks on the back. The back of my cart was about 3 inches higher then the front. I raised the front of my cart 1 7/8" so that it would be an inch lower then the rear. My tires were so far off as you can see in the pic. My cart now has about a 6" lift with stock a arms. Here is how I fixed my alignment. I used a cut off wheel and cut my a arms on both sides and the bottom. I then bent the arm and opened it up so there is about a 3/8" gap whick is what I needed to fix the alignment. I then welded 1/4" plate steel on the 2 sides and the bottom. I also had to fix the steering because of the increased lift. I used a piece of 4"x1/4" C channel. I removed my Steering arms and bolted them ontop of the C channel. My cart now turns just like it did stock except i now have 23x10x14" wheels. Now my wheels sit flat when its on the ground and looks great. This is a real easy and cheep fix for anyone who can use a few tools and a welder. If anyone else trys this or has already done it let me know how it works for you. Hope it helps a few people out.
