Default 2014 g29 gas smoother ride battle

i'm hating the ride with the heavy duty shocks i put on , so looking options. I like the concept of the hd shocks for when we have adults on the back.. but cant stand the ride the other 80% of the time.. too bumpy.

i know the electric shocks are stiffer than the gas models.. would that be a good intermediate option, or is it even worth it?

I have a 6 inch lift with 14 inch wheels/ 23 inch all terrain. I ordered new 12 inch wheels with 23 inch street tires, but cant put them on- the vendor sent 4 23-10.5-12 tires that were literally 4 different sizes, so no beuno. (steeleng) they are working with me on a return.

Shocks don't hold weight they only dampen unless they are coil-overs. You problem is 14" wheels and 23" tires. The 12" with 23s will be better but 10" wheels would be better yet...(more sidewall)

and what are them electric shocks you speak of, do they run on 12 volts?

Haha..

The rear shocks on the electric carts are supposedly stiffer than the gas due to the weight of batteries. The Yamaha drive are rear coil overs .

My ezgo rxv has a bad ride, it has the rhox 6 lift and I also have 14 wheels 23/10/14 with what I call ATV tires so I bought new street fox radials for it in the same size and man what a difference. Its rides so smooth now.
