Default DS hd front spring

I have an 05 DS Electric. I'm thinking about installing a hd front spring to reduce body roll. I'm wondering if this change will raise the front of the cart.

Pretty bad. They're both leaking.

You're going to need/want new shocks anyway. I would replace those first. If that doesn't resolve your issue to your liking, then consider the spring.

Putting a stiffer spring on the front will make it roll more than it already does. You'll just pick up the inside front tire if you turn hard enough.

Majority of the weight of the cart, including passengers, is on the REAR of the cart, and that's where the majority of that roll comes from.
If the REAR shocks are bad, it will compound any issue with possibly weak rear springs and it will weaken the springs further.

You should replace all 4 shocks if they are leaking. Replace the rear springs with HD or Dual action springs.
