How would you compare the general ride quality now to the HD leaf springs?

You cant even compare them. Even with the banging its 1000% better. I set the car ramps up back to back and drove over them with one side at about 5-10mph and the cart wasnt even phased. I'm beyond happy with it as it is lol it will be perfect when the shocks are working as intended.

I have what I think is a simple solution to my shock problem. Looking for confirmation or something I might have missed.

The Polaris springs measure 12in with no weight on them. If I replace them with 11 or 11.5in springs I will lower the cart into the shock .5-1in. I will need to make new taller shock mounts to offset the height lost due to the shorter springs but ultimately i feel like that would be a lot less rework than other options.

Any objections?!

Scrap that... The right way to do it is to go with a spring the same free length with a lower # rating. You'll get more compression and lose ride height that way.


I spent some time adjusting the links and its seem to help the passenger side lean alot.

I also busted out the jack and I'm able to get 11inches of travel before the tire hits the body plastic. The shock still has 4inches to go lol.


I drove a few miles and the it tracks great. It does have some body roll but it's by no means terrible and it feels very predictable.

I wonder if the Polaris 500 would work. IIRC they are the same overall length as the 700 but the spring maybe lighter. Something to think about.

A rather drastic shock change is going down. I have a set of monroe MA817 air shocks coming today to try inplace of the polaris shocks. It shouldnt be to painful of a swap. If they work out ill be adding onboard tank and compressor and setting the jakes shocks upfront for adjustable air as well.

The small volume needed to fill the shocks should be easily achived with a small system. Ill split the air system into 2 zones front and rear. Mounting the pressure regulators between the seats to allow for quick adjustments if i need to haul people or trailers.

Haven't updated this post recently.

Still fighting a few issues but getting closer.

Wouldnt a Z-Link be better for a golf cart.... Even a swingarm style where the bottom bar of the birdcage goes forward to the frame, top mounts towards the rear.... The shock/coil-over spring mounts on top of the curved forward bar. With this setup the rear end should stay square.

I'm sure alot of setups would work well. The triangulated 4link keeps the rear square and also allows for extreme amounts of articulation. I can also easily air up and down nearly 10 inches without binding. Not alot of setups will allow that much on the fly adjustment.
