Default Front Suspension Lift

Have a Cushman Industrial and am going to have to build a front end lift for it. The suspension is a transverse leaf spring connecting to the bottom of the front spindles and then one rod on each side connecting the frame to the top of the spindle. Steering is rack and pinion. Brakes are hydraulic disc. What are my options for a lift of about 5-7" ? Should I just keep the same susspension and move all the mounting points down? Or should I change over to an A-arm suspension or other option? I have no problem welding up my own arms, brackets, building arms etc..

I don't recall ever seeing a lift kit designed for that cart, nor do I recall seeing a lift done on one..

So maybe you are the experiment model.. Good luck, it always helps if you post pictures of what you are planning if you want feedback.

Moving the suspension points down will probably give you the height you want, but the a arm setup will handle better at speed. My vote is for an atv type front suspension with double a arms and long travel shocks.

Depending on how the whole system is set up,You could use a spacer-block to drop the spring down from the frame(same as some OE pickups or aftermarket lift-kits).Then you would have to relocate or modify the rest accordingly.Also look at Club-Car front-ends,They use a single leaf(Buggy-Spring,or Transverse-Leaf).This may open up using availiable kits to adapt to your cart with some fabrication-work.Simply Re-Arching the spring to gain height will turn into an alignment nitemare unless you have a new spring made.Ask " OffTwice "about that.Hope this helps.
