Don't know either! But anytime someone has the jigs from something that is discontinued, they will make you the item "for the right price"

That's how it usually goes...

Shmo,
Back when you had jakes original fr shocks, where did you install them to get a level ride? It would have been nice if jakes gave a starting point location.
Thank and nice build

Well, "level" is subjective. With the stock Shocks, I mounted them in the highest postion (suspension lifted) and put a little preload on the springs. The shocks would not just slip in to position like that. I had to loosen the king pins and pry them in slightly with the front suspension supported off the ground. Once on the ground, everything is tightened back up. Under normal stop and starts on level ground, the cart would sit pretty level. As far as I am concerned, level is considerably higher up front than your typical Jake's Lift.

To me, this looks about level and that is how my cart sat with stock shocks.

Finally got around to replacing my batteries. After doing a little research, I decided on trying Interstates. I have them on the charger for the second short cycle right now. Looking forward to getting back on the cart for summer.

It's been ages since I have done anything with my cart. Just recently, I somewhat caught the bug again. I've been lurking at pics and coming up with some ideas. So, I ordered up some seat covers, and I tried my hand with my pneumatic stapler. I also removed the roof and gave it a few coats of plasti dip. I am really happy with the way both projects turned out. It all went, without a hitch, and everything looks fantastic. I was pretty well versed with plasti dip, but I was quit surprised on how much better I liked the satin black on the roof and uprights. With the new seat upholstery, it all looks so much better. I am anxiously awaiting for the materials to arrive, for my next cart project. Stay tuned for that one.

Annnnd now, a few pics!
