Default Quality 8" A-arm Lift for Club Car

Who makes the best "bang for buck" 8" A-arm Lift for my 95 Carryall?
I will be cruising on trails, not too much more. (no jumping or speeds over 20mph, ever).

Reason I ask is that I have noticed that this forum is MUCH better than BU, and have seen that BU lifts are put down often. Just doing my homework. Is theri 8" A-arm (for $300) decent?

Thanks guys.

We're quite a few steps above BU on everything. Our focus is on quality - not quantity. I was thinking long travel a arm, not just an a arm like that one. Nothing else to say other than you get what you pay for my friend...

I have a 8" spindle lift on mine. You can see it in my avatar. I really like it. Very strong.

Very true, and that is something that I advocate strongly when somebody asks my opinion about truck/ATV parts/accessories - I'm just trying to get a feel for the golf cart stuff...
I was curious how much better the CPP 8" a-arm lift was than this (not much more - only $100), I will take a look at your site too.

Thanks.

Better to use a spindle lift, Jake's is the only kit we use on Club Cars. They are engineered very well. 6" drop lift is $400.00, add 23" tires and you get 8 1/2" lift overall. In the auto business, lift heights are measured by suspension lift only. Some in the golf cart biz sneak in larger numbers in their writeups to make theirs seem bigger and better. Most assume the kit will be used with a 22 tire. The difference? Compare Rough Country and Pro Comp...

I have personally seen many parts from BU fail. Please, please check our
sponsors. They all sell quality parts or they would not be sponsors here at BGW.

Why a spindle lift, versus an a-arm lift?

I would like to achieve 8" from just the lift alone. I have a thing for clearance (see avatar - 7" lift on 33s).
