Default Lifting a 45 year old cart - help needed!

I have an interesting project thats nearing completion, all thats left is finding a way to fit 22" tires on a cart that has no lift kit to speak of.

I figured the best way to measure out what i can fit was to measure from the hub outerwards and see how much clearance I have - Ideally have 12 or 13 to leave room for the 11" it goes each direction.

The front has a wopping 14" of clearance stock - its ready to go, and its a **** good thing cause I dont think id ever be able to lift it with its exotic steering system.

The back is where it gets nasty - looking like it has about 10.5" of clearance. So i need to lift the rear end 1-2" to fit the tires. It is a leaf spring based cart. The rear end on it is a gas Yamaha G9.

Any ideas?
If it helps, the cart is a early 1970s 4 wheel Pargo. The rear end leaf spring system reminds me of a EZGO TXT. I am not looking for a big lift here, just enough to fit the tires without making the front look slumped over.

I'll have pictures added shortly

Leaf springs, you either put the axle lower in relation to the springs....by moving the axle under the springs or placing blocks on top of the axle that is under the springs. Or you use longer shackles on the springs. I suppose you could move the front mount lower as well, if you can. You can beef the springs with higher arches or more leafs, but that usually makes it ride hard too.

If you had the stock cradle from the G9 you just put extensions on the shocks to lift.

Longer shackles or a axle flip to under the springs.
