Question Axle lift vs. Spindle lift- Pros and Cons

I'm a bit confused.. What's the difference between the two types of lifts, Axle and Spindle?

Cart's a ez-go 2002......

I know that the Spindle Lift is probably easier to install but what are the Pros and Cons other than that?

Aesthetics, functionality, interference with certain wheels, steering, etc?......

I noticed the caveat in one of the ads for the 6" spindle lift that says that you "must use 10 or 12 inch wheels" but it doesn't say why.
Interference with 8"?

Thanks

Um, I mean "A-Lift"....What no opinions? There must be a difference else you'd only see spindle lifts out there......

I'm not an ez go guy but I would say the drop axle lift is stronger than a spindle lift. As far as rims, yes some lifts will have interference issues with the 8" rims.

The larger diameter rim will give the room needed for the tie rod ends.

Well, Dick, I for one, just found this thread. Sorry I wasn't sitting here waiting for your Q this AM....... and I was about to give you all I have learned from doing both of the types of lifts you were asking about when I came across this crap posting calling all of us stupid.
So now I'm not telling you anything You can just go buy 3 of each and learn for yourself As far as I am concerned no one should answer your question after that insult who is the dumbass now?
P.S. Only a funking engineer would say that .... we had one other on here we had to run him off for a bad attitude also....
