Jim - Did you ever get a chance to measure the G16 shocks compared to the G8 shocks?

This weekend I worked on my rear seat setup. It worked out good and I think it came out looking pretty good too. I had to modify the mounts because the seat was to short in height and length. So I welded angle iron to the mounts that bolt to the driver and passenger back rest supports. I also had to move the foot rest down. I wanted to make the foot rest foldable so that the cart would fit in the back of my truck with the tailgate up. The only thing that didn't fit was the rear foot rest. So I figured since I had to lower the foot rest I might as well make foldable. So here is what I did. I welded box steel at an angle towards the bagwell. This allows the whole footrest to pivot up, not just half of it. I then cut 2" steel plat and drilled holes to act as a hanger (not sure how much I like this). There's 2 large tabs on the back of the footrest that lock under the bumper. Originally the support bars under the seat part bolted to the footrest. In this case that wasn't going to work for me. So I had a piece of galvanized steel plate that I didn't have any use for until now. I created steel platforms in the bagwell area so that the seat supports had a solid surface to rest on in the bagwell cause I couldn't (and didn't want to) bolt the support to the footrest. So basically this seat is floating it's held on by 2 bolts at the front seat backrest supports and it locks down by the footrest tabs. It works perfectly. I can take the whole back seat assembly off in less than 5 minutes. I have one more thing that I want to do and that is weld a 2" receiver hitch under the cart and that will be used for 2 reasons. 1. as a trailer hitch if I need it. 2. When not using for towing, I want to use it to lock down the footrest so that it can't move at all plus prevent the footrest from ever being able to slide under the bumper/bagwell area. I'll post pictures when I complete that part. Here's a bunch of pictures that I took of the rear seat.

Hey guys! I came across this on CL the other day and wanted to share. I just emailed the guy to see what he has. At first glance it looks like it could be a good deal but we will see.

Wow. Looks like that guy has piles of bodies.

So I'm pretty sure the front shocks on my cart are beat. Any suggestions on what to replace them with? Because of the A-Arm lift I have to stay with the same length shock but I'd like to get a stiffer shock to reduce body roll. Is there a shock out there that's better than another? Maybe I could use a Harley Sportster shock or something. I found a set of rear Yamaha Drive shocks on ebay for $50 but I don't know if they would fit and/or be better or worse.
