I think you will need to make it. If you have your kin pins on top of the axle like my 87, you can find a layer model that has the steering knuckles off the end of the axle, rather than on top, and that will give you 3 inches

Not sure, those sound close, tey them on and see. My cart is lifted in the front only right now, and the 23 inch tires fit in the rear with the use of some 1 inch spacers I made. Without the spacers the tires hit the suspension so even with a lift the spacers would be needed

No idea, but look on ebay, and when you see one with the steering knuckles straight out the end instead of on top, then you have it!
