Default Can steering on a lifted cart be reversed?

I'm building a 6" lift for my ezgo marathon and once installed I ended up with a slite positive camber. My angles calculations were off. From what I've been told is I need a negative camber. Is it possible since it appears that the spindles angle down that they could be swapped? So instead of the main steer wheel being on the passenger side it would be on the drivers side? It doesn't need much and I really don't want to cut the knuckles off if possible. Is this even an option or am I missing something. Thanks in advance!

Have you driven it? most Yamahas run around with positive camber.

No not yet. I still need to lift the rear and waiting on rear wheel spacers. I think I will flip them over tonight just to see where the angle ends up and see if there are any apparent issues.

Forget that idea. That thing had waayyyy too much negative camber. Had to bust out the port a band but all is good now.

I swapped my spindles when I built the lift on my G1. Of course I was still building so just changed the mounting points on my shocks to get the correct amount of Camber.

It worked well for me and also got the mounting points for my steering linkages a lot more to level and then just added spacers.
