I use auto shocks on carts all the time, however I don't know the exact sizes that fit which carts. I weld different ends on the shocks to make whatever size I need. I normally try to use 50/50 shocks for the carts. The 50/50 is the relationship of percentage of resistance in push/pull forces, some shocks have a different rate of push compaired to pull eg: some are 60/40, and so forth. It would help to find a good parts guy that may know something about this.

I use Monroes for the ezgos and CC. Not too many make a shock small enough. Bring the old shock into the parts store with the new travel measuements. Find the oldest guy in the store and ask for his help finding what you need! Good luck.

back in the day,many,many moons ago, I was a parts dept mangr and we did that kind of thing as a rule. Do all you could for the customer. You almost have to go to the older name stores to get help these dayz. There are still a few who will help ya with things like this, lol. I will find out if my local guys will. Thanks Larry
