swingarm drop?
I have been seeing alot of pics where guys have dropped the rear swingarm on their cart... What does this do for the rear end???

Re: swingarm drop?
for me, it pushed my rear tires back to center of wheel well perhaps futher back and leveled out my vanny a bit more to get proper oil lubrication. as far as the rear end it remains same as stock........not 100% sure of what you mean?

Re: swingarm drop?
When you say its' dropped,do you mean the front of it is lowered?I did this on our carts to keep the motor closer to level due to having a float-bowl carb as this eases tuning.It also levels out the rear-axle so oil-levels are closer to stock without having to add extra just to compensate for the extra pinion-height.Its' more of personal preference.Check out my pics,you can see the drop(3").Hope this helps.:thumbup:

Re: swingarm drop?
yes, you lower the front.

This also gains you room in the engine compartment.

Re: swingarm drop?
That's great guys! Thanks! Yeah Pachanga, dropping the front of the swingarm. Would I have to make a lift myself or will a Double A Arm still work? I don't see why it wouldn't...

Re: swingarm drop?
the lift will still work

Re: swingarm drop?
The only REAL down fall to dropping the front of the swing arm is that you loose ground clearance where there are no tires. Its not as big of a deal at the axle its self because the tires are there to crawl over at that point in the cart. Just something to remember
