Default 2016 EZ-GO RXV electric golf cart rear axle is rotating

After installing a 6 inch lift, the rear axle will rotate backwards if you change from reverse to forward without stopping. When the axle rotates, it moves the motor backwards and jams up against the body and has broken the speed cable twice. Now I have to somehow rotate the axle and motor back towards the front. Is there a way to tighten so this does not happen?

I see you have done the leaf over axle lift and mounted the rubber isolated retainers upside down, you probably removed the centering pins on the differential to flip everything.
Not only do they locate the diff in the center of the cart they also prevent what is happening to your cart.
Can you post a picture from the back of the cart at the spring pad area?
If the pins are in fact gone, you might need to get a couple of trailer axle spring pads from Northern Tool or spring place and weld to the top of your axle to correct the problem but lets look at some more pics first and can you determine if the pins are still on the axle?

Or just weld a couple of 1" long pins to the bottom of your axle......

I can't tell which direction the pics are taken from but a thought...the lift blocks are not perfectly flat they angle slightly on most lifts...are you sure when you installed the blocks the high side of the block was in the rear and not the front? this would cause your lift to be a little lower in the back and push backwards on the rear end...was just thinking something to check...

That lift block is actually made to sit on an original spring pad under the axle.
I'm thinking for a different style axle and not for this model.
Rotate the axle where you want it and run a 1" weld on each side of the lift block to the axle and don't worry about it.
