Default New to me cart questions

So I bought a 2012 Yamaha and it was delivered today. Thereís a few issues I noticed now that I didnít before.(1st time buyer here)

1. So there appears to be some issues with the steering. Every bump makes it get squirrelly and at speed can feel like youíll roll. Something seems too loose. Is this something that just happens over time? Easy fix?

2. Cart is leaning to the drivers side somewhat. Iím assuming because that side gets more use. Would replacing the shock on that side fix it? Are you better off replacing both sides?

3. The rear wheels are sticking out wider than the front tires by a good 2-3Ē. Is this normal?

4. Gonna be loading it into the bed of my 2018 Chevy 1/2 ton. What ramps are people using?

If these have all been asked then I apologize. This newb just needs a little guidance.

1. Check tie rods, make sure there is no slop. Have someone sit in the driver set and turn the steering wheel left to right while you are under the cart looking for loose steering and suspension components. That's a lot of additional height added to the cart, some instability will be normal after adding a lift and larger wheels/tires.
2.springs are probably tired on that side and have settled. take the shock off, and reinstall on opposite side. Are batteries centered on the platform?
3. Do all wheels have the same offset? That is strange. Do rear wheels have wheel spacers installed? My front track width is wider that the rear, which is normal when lifting the cart.
4. Long ramps and back up to a raised surface. My cart goes on a trailer, truck is way too high. Be cautious when loading, do not tilt the cart far enough to move the batteries, or cause the batteries to leak.
