Cool Lift a 2003 txt w hydraulic brakes?

Anyone lifted a 2003 txt 6 seater w/ hydraulic brakes? I'm trying to figure out the pitfalls before I get to them. I want to put a 3 inch lift kit on the cart. Thanks.

Make sure the hydraulic lines have enough length for the full travel of the suspension and that they are safe from pinching or binding.
Can you post pics of the cart and brakes?

This cart I put a Jakes 3" spindle lift, the spindles are pre-drilled for the disc brakes.

Thanks, Scottyb. Here are some pix of the cart and the brakes. let me know what you think. I had a dealer tell me the cart couldn't be lifted. always up for a challenge.

That looks like a challenge alright. You will have to do some fab work. What does the front look like?

Except for the 5 bolt hub, the front looks pretty standard. has 3 bolt steering. nothing special otherwise. Are you aware of a lift kit made specifically for these txts? I heard that for some reason in 2003 ezgo changed up their design and then reverted back the next year. Do you think a standard txt lift kit will fit with a little modification?

I notice that your cart has 4 lug wheels. are you using 5 to 4 lug adapters or did you replace the hubs? my 2003 has 5 lug hubs/wheels.

Your cart is an industrial model and is nothing like the standard TXT with the 4 lug wheels posted.
Your dealer is right. If you are going to lift that cart you are going to be making or seriously modifying a lift kit.

That's not saying it can't be done....
