They are only supposed to be 8.46" Wide, 18.77" Tall (3.38" sidewall), but for some reason, mine measure a little over 19 inches tall.

I reworked the rear suspension on the cart today. I didnt like the blocks under the axles because it made the cart ride so rough. I was having to pump the shocks up so much to overcome the spring rate of the rear springs to lift the cart, and thats what made for a rougher ride. I took the leaf springs off, ordered some custom urethane buishings, and made some link bars to replace the leafs:

The links are made of .125 wall 1.25 inch square tubing. I made some saddles to locate the axle and some lower shocks mounts. This setup works MUCH better. I will post some pics of the links when I get ready to install them. (I removed them for paint).I can lift the rear of the cart with a lot less pressure and that improves the ride to better than factory. Another little plus to this arrangement is that the rear of the cart is able to be lifted several more inches:

Yep. Without the leaf springs they provide both spring and shock. With the link bars I changed the angle of the shocks and it lifts with less pressure and rides like its on air--cause it is!
