Default Re: g29 rear tire rubbing, one side only?

Iím new to all this but wouldnít the HD springs give you enough clearance or even adding spacers to the current springs? I made some for mine to help with body sway and it added around 1/2 inch in ride height.

The mudflap/splash guard on the passenger side is obviously closer to the tire than the one on the driver side. The scuff mark on the end of the bumper might tell us why. Everything is pretty close to those tires. The splash guard is the only thing I can see that should be rubbing. Or at least it is the first thing that might rub. Get it tucked back toward the bumper like the driver side one and you may eliminate the rub.

This will be interesting, just ordered tire size 20.5 from golf cart tire. They said it should fit.

Iíve been reading HD strings make the cart ride really rough, how do spacers make it ride in comparison.

And is there really a Yamaha 2 inch lift? That seems perfect for me if so.

This is the "real deal" yamaha one, not aftermarket. Based on its design style, it should have no effect on your turning radius.

Wow, extra $100-$120 compared to jakes or rhox.

I guess we will see if I rub and how much with the new wheels and might need to do a lift if I get some rubbing.

So just went out to measure the rear, and this is what I got from floor to fender. 19, which I think means. **** shame. Didnít want to lift it.

I need a lift kit and with that, I think Iíd go with a 3inch one.

Thanks, makes sense. ďSplitting the differenceĒ half of it will be one the bottom

Still debating if should just 3inch lift, so when the wheels get here I just put the lift on as well and not worry about it at all.

Or Iíll see how much I rub and maybe just do HD springs in the rear, need to read up on how much it changes the ride.

Welp, I rub, and itís because Iím fat, and my wife isnít. lol

When we turn, I rub on my side, when we brake on a hill we rub on my side. When people are on the back I need to move weight around to even the cart out, lol

So I was thinking of going with the Yamaha 2inch Kit, but at $411 before shipping.

Iím taking a second look at the all-sports 3 inch a-arm kit. Waiting to hear back on pricing.

*wish I didnít need to raise it, but I feel like a 2 or 3 inch will still be fine with my wheels.

Will report back.
