Another option might be to try and find air shocks to fit the rear that way you can let the air out when not fully loaded for a better ride and increase pressure when you know you will have riders with you.....

i would do that but dont have the option to beaf up the mounts of the shock locations to aid with the extra load they would take, so thats not an option for me.

Monroe sensatrac 58620 and the stock marathon spring works real good and is not to costly! Heres one I did a few years back.....

todd, i like that concept but how is it mounted to the frame up top? as i dont have access to a welder so my fabbing is super limited.

If you jacked the tires off the ground and put the scale under the tire and let the cart down on the scale and with the one tire on the scale and you got 318 lbs without anyone on the cart, you need to take off some of that weight. Because you are weighting the tire, wheel and the rear end that has nothing to do with the weight of the spring you want, if your trying to figure out the weight for a spring you need. You need to jack the cart up under the bumper just a little bit, not the tire, and put the scale under the bumper to get the weight of the cart/and you if you want, and not the rear end and tires , hope you can figure out what i'm telling you about the weight, it's hard to say on a computer

anyone have suggestions on weight at this point for new springs?

I welded a 1/2" bolt onto the frame but I would guess you could drill thru the frame and bolt all the way thru but not tightening it to tight that you would collapse the the tubing on the frame but welding would be best.

as for distance, does that give you around the 4-5 inch lift from stock? or is that more?


and for weight yes it makes since, ill try to see if i can get back there and do exactly what you said , lift one corner up till i watch the springs start to release then i know what the actual weight is without the drivetrain .
