Default DS rear shackle plates

Does anyone have a parts catalog .pdf for a mid 2000s DS ?
My '06 Carryall parts catalog lists the rear spring shackle plates part #1012304
I'd like to find a set of four shackle plates to swap onto my Turf1 after they've been repainted. The plates on mine are SUPER scaly rusty and will require a high pressure sand-blasting before refinishing and I don't want to disable my cart for as long as that might take.
IF the part numbers are the same between both models I figured that there ought to be scads of them floating around the workshops of so many ClubCar lifted cart enthusiasts.

The rear spring shackle #1012304 are on all DS gassers from 1984 to 2011! (without a factory Z lift)

I made a few last year from 1" x 3/16" steel from lowes. Cut, grind the corners, drill 3/8" holes. Paint whatever color you want.

I figured there ought to be dozens if not hundreds of them in workshops all across the country.

Would it be possible to flip the leaf spring to the top of the axle instead of mounting underneath it? That would preserve ride quality and load capacity, should be good for a solid 5 inches of lift as well

Most lift kits do exactly that. How much height you get depends on what blocks you use, but in general the smallest blocks that come with most 3" kits put the spring about 1/4" above the axle.

Gotcha, I hadn't gotten far enough to look into the lift kits yet. Good to know, thanks!
