Default Re: Adjusting left/right sag on EZGO beam front ends

Skymonkey, bear with me here. Do your rear spring hangers hang at exactly the same angle both sides of the cart? if so, i have your answer. If ok, then we can look further.

I dont supppose you can see it, but the cart in my Avatar has a block lift on the rear of the front springs and consist of two inch square by three inch long block with a hole drilled to accept the rear spring bolt, exactly the same as Stovebolt described and the springs are mounted on top of the axle not below.

I would not shim for level, i would find out what is wrong and correct it. You say you have new HD springs, thought of swapping them over to see if it sags the opposite way, as this would indicate a weak spring and believe me, new stock can be faulty.

So, how I fixed my immediate problem was I bought a 4" block lift for my cart which had the EXACT rear-of-front-spring "C-shaped" bracket I envisioned for a whopping $70. I'm out of town on business and won't be home for two weeks, but I'll post pics of my mod when I get it done.

Fixed it. Here it is now with a solid ten inches of lift up front. Still six inches in back, but I like it this way.

Can you post a picture of your blocks I don't have directions, and how your steering looks. I assume you add the blocks at the back of the front springs and angle the steering down to that adjustable knuckle. Do you have to get a longer steering arm that comes forward off the steering column coming down?

I'm trying to add a few inches up front to get clearance for my truck. THANKS

So, I got the four inch block lift off of Amazon and I knew exactly what I was getting. I didn't need any of the BS for the back; just the big "C" blocks for the front. In a perfect world, they are SUPPOSED to go under the back of the front springs, but I ended up putting them under the bottom of the front of the front springs and it worked out much-better steering-wise. Also: with the way I ended up placing the "C" blocks, I actually got a full five more inches of lift as best I can measure. No instructions came with the kit. The only parts I used were the "C" blocks, the hardware, and the shock extensions. Again: my cart rides a tad "nose high" right now, but I like it. I can add the one-inch rear blocks anytime I like in like fifteen minutes (or two beers, whichever comes first).

The steering drag link used to go over the top of the front springs when I just had the beam lift. It now runs under the bottom. No, it does NOT rub, even though I thought it would. Yes: it's more janky than a long-travel, double-A-arm like I had on my last cart, but it DEFINITELY gets the job done. Again: this is now a combo of a six-inch beam lift and a four-inch block lift up front.

Nope, actually that's the way they were intended to be used, it's called the 4" economy lift, cheaper than buying a dropped axle lift.

Can you send me the links to the C block lifts and shock extensions you got I might as well go with a proven solution if it's not too much more than aluminum blocks bc then I won't need to buy new shocks. The links will be on your order history.

Not intending to hijack OP's thread Stovebolt but wondering how much lift you got moving the front springs to the top of the axle gave you?
I just put 20in tires on my 94 Medalist (no lift) and need a little more clearance as body bottoms out when going over bumps. (Main use of this cart is on the golf course)
Thanks
