Default Newbie lift question

I apologize up front because I'm sure this has been asked at least once before.

Can some of you chime in about my options to lift my 1980 ezgo marathon electric?

I've seen the cheap ones and the axel lifts. What's the differences? Pros and cons?

I know nothing about lifting anything except 12oz cans :)

I recommend a change to the 16 oz aluminum bottle Good to the last drop and more for the money

Also do a BGW thread search on the Allsports Lift kits I have one on my cart but this is my first cart and it is interesting to see positive input from experienced cart guys

Inthehollar, are you from yazoo co. Ms? Give us some info on what your doing with your cart. I'm in my first cart and it came lifted so I'm definitely not an expert. The spindle lifts seem to be the least expensive. Good for neighborhood riding and some light off-roading. Not to say some guys don't use them on off-road carts. A arm lifts are a little better, more stable, little more expensive. Long travel seem to be the best. A good bit more expensive but seems like the guys that have them like them a lot. The lift on my cart is a cheap a arm and worn out so, I have been looking at upgrading. I like the looks of the all sport super sport 6" lift. Have seen some good reviews on the steeleng lifts on here.

The cheap lifts will do the job. Its basically like a lift block for a pickup. Goes between the spring and the stock axle.

The lift axle has the bend in it so it raises the springs up with out having the cheap look.

Either would work fine, on my old ezgo I just built a drop axle for it with some 1x2 since I have a welder.

I appreciate all of the responses. Dirtpit, I'm live in Oklahoma.

Cruising the Web and found this on ebay. Will this work for a light duty hunting cart? We have several hundred acres, mostly flat. I have multiple stands with easy access to all of them. I won't be "off roading" just cruising around.

Thanks carolinasled. Do I need to be concerned with wheels rubbing with this type of lift? I've read where that can be an issue and I'm not ready to upgrade wheels until I find a deal I can't pass up.

No. Only thing this lift does is raises the carts leaf springs front and rear. The wheel offset doesn't need to change since you will be using the stock axle and spindles. You will be fine with the stock wheels just make sure to get the appropriate size tires that is recommended for the lift.

You have been a huge help. Thanks.

I do have one other issue. I need an accelerator rod for my 1980 marathon 36v. Or I need to know if they are straight or have and bends or offsets in them.

Thanks again for all of your help.

I would think the 80 would be the same as the 93 but can't be sure about that. You could probably make one with some small all thread rod. I'm having to make a new one since I cut my cart in half to stretch it.
