Default Lift vs. Fabrication

Im definately a noob trying to choose a lift for my g1. Notching the frame for the clutch does'nt bother me but adjustments to correct caster/camber problems set me back just a little. Since my cart will be used mainly in the campground would I be better off with a modest 4" lift? My grand-daughters will be driving this from time to time. I've also noted that the front end is being moved out around 2" for 6" lifts. Am I making too much of all of this?

I just finished building a lift for my G9. http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/membe...-progress.html

It wasn't that hard to do and it's about 5" of lift and about 2" further forward and I think it's more than enough, I can't really see why anybody would want to go much taller on the lift.

I think I have a total of maybe $40 into it plus a little time to put it together. Definitely worth it to me.

Look at the posts about G2/G9 lifts as Honorstick mentioned.I came up with a setup dubbed "The Pachanga Lift"by members here.I've done 2-G2s' and a G16 with the same setup.Its' simple,strong,cheap and it works.The rear is as simple as making a new mount for the shock,or a drop-bracket to drop it down.5" lift with 1-1/2" to 2" forward-offset will fit 22" tires,with no modifications to the rest of the cart,including steering,other than re-aligning the front-end(tie-rod adjustment)Hope this helps.
