I've not built a setup like your doing, but looking at yours think I may give it a go on my Yamaha G1.

I can't say for sure where they should go because as said, I haven't done it myself. If it were me, I'd make the link bars so that they went from the frame where your center mount is and go back to where the rear axle is. I'd make sure they were in line with the original engine cradle/swing arm cradle. This may cause clearance problems with your shock mounting so you may have to make some changes there as well.

A question, why do you have coil over shocks as well as regular shocks? I can see that it originally had coil springs and the shocks. I guess you added the coil overs and just didn't remove the original shocks?

It usually rides on just the coil overs only I just sat them in there for the pick if you look closely there is no top mount . and yes I cut off the old coil spring mounts off the marathon axle and added the coil overs .. but on my previous cart(marathon) the *** end would sag to much once the rear flip seat was installed with 2 200lb passangers out back +cooler full of beer and this was after the coilovers were installed . and those shocks are off a mini truck (old school Tacoma I think, had them laying around). if I hadn't already had a donor cart I would have surely went the vegascarts route he has a premade axle and all that bolts in for 175$.. The main reason I want to use this axle was to get rid of the leaf springs bc with just 2 ppl the old cart rode like a atv. . the shocks came from a Polaris sportsman 500 or 700 cant remember they are adjustable paid 50$ via ebay this with my new jakes LT kit I just installed should be smooth as butter once its all worked out
