Default lift of '03 gas CC DS, 6" all sports SS

Bought this 6" lift from Revolution,
I ordered on Monday...it was sitting on my porch on Friday!!
Got some 1.5" wheel spacers for rear elsewhere, $34.
Got these 23" on 12". Brand new on FB mktplace, $240. (I didn't ask)
I got exact measurements 'before', I'll post 'after's' when I'm finished.

The rear lift install took 2 hours with an air ratchet's help.
issues:
Ground from starter/gen to frame too short, had a longer ground in stock.
Fuel pump gas lines are stretched to max. I'll lengthen.
brake cables are a bit tighter. Holder wire clips won't reinstall. I'll prob zip tie.

Also, with cowl off I notice several extra stock wires and the frt blinker/pk lights have rubber plugs in the lenses. Headlight switch feels like it has a 2 stage position. I would like to have new park lights (Ft/Rear) and they be separate from headlights.
I don't desire turn blinkers. Flashers maybe?
Possible?

parking lights should be easy. There should be 3 wires coming off the switch if it's a 3 way switch (off, parking, head). There should be a diode between the parking and head lights so you can turn the parking lights on without the headlights, but when you have headlights on both are on.

On the lights themselves, they usually come from the factory with the parking/blinker light tied in with the headlights so you only have to hook up the 1 wire. Just separate that and wire them to the switch separately.

The brake cable holder clips, I just take them off and leave them off. I've never had the brake lines catch or hang up on anything. The lift stretches them pretty good on their own. You will want to readjust the rear brakes after you get the front end lifted up though. Lifting the cart tends to take the rears WAY out of adjustment so you probably won't have any rear brakes. Adjustment should be simple at the proportioning bracket underneath the floorboard, where the rod connects to the cables. Tighten it up so it's "snug" and you'll have rear brakes again

I finished the lift. Took about six hours for the front. That's no hurry, alignment, R&R cowl and tires/wheels, etc, all complete ready to drive.
Very very easy install. Amazing how all fit so well,
*Instructions did not explain well that you leave the heim joint to spindle bolts snug, not locktited, until you get your camber adjustment complete. This is because you remove the bolt (top or bottom) so to twist the heim in or out for adjustment. Once all adjusted, locktite and torc.
Photos:
Stock wheels fit fine on the 6" lift spindles.
Adj camber
Adj toe-in by myself (another straight edge on opposite tire)
A five gal bucket fits under final install.
"Sweepee" loves her new height/sight advantage.

I got my rear driven clutch back from Revolution (machining + spring)and finally installed.
---Honestly...AMAZING the difference! It will spin my directional steeling/wanda 23"'s on my rough concrete with front bumper against post. (just one tire spunt and their overinflated).
Climbs hills better than with stock tires, no power loss. No jerk on takeoff and takeoff seems smoother. Just barely zip tied gub spring, cart scoots!
-- Shout out to Revolution.
