If I don't put the springs on top and use the thru bolt ball joints and spacers that are supplied in the Jake's spring flip kit then I think it wouold work like it is , it doesn't hit the leaf right now while doing all the way on the steering , but that is with out radical bumps

I ran into a problem with the Jake's spindle , cost me a little money but a lot of time , the Jake's spindles' cotter ket hole is drill close to the end of the spindles' shaft , when I thread the castle nut all the way in till it contacted the outer bearing , the hole for the cotter key totally missed the nut and the nut would turn a couple of times before even hitting the key , it never had spindle washers on the cart to start with , and the oem spindles hole was a lot farther in from the end , went to about every Auto parts around and finally found the washers at a boat dealer , same nut , washer and cotter in a 1 inch spindle boat trailer set up that was sold only as a set , both sides cost $11 , got two nuts , 2 washers and 2 cotter keys , the washer put the key where it needed to be , could have been worst

Glad to see you got it figured out. I'm pretty sure I didn't have that issue when doing the spindle lift on the last EZGO I had. It sucks when things like that happens.

a little tuff to see in pick , the OEM EZGO spindles' cotter hole is center in the 5th thread , the Jake's spindle is the second thread , the kit underneath the spindles is the same nut , the perfect thickness washer but you need to go up 2 diameter sizes on the cotter ----- the spacers to convert EZGO to Honda are being made 2 inches thick and I am going to have to grind a little out the id of the aluminum rims' center to let the bearing buddies slide thru , and the tires should be perfect in line with the body flares -------- in the rear I got 2 - 2 inch spacers , I had to have my buddy at his machine shop bore out a hole on the back side of the spacer as the 85 1/2 Honda TRX250A hubs have a lip on them , where the 86-up doesn't , it was an extra step but it really locks the spacer to the hub and will help to keep it from coming loose

You didn't use your hitch receiver? don't know about the shocks but wouldn't
use car shocks designed for a 3000 lb car, maybe something for an atv?

No I don't plan on using the hitch , I have another WorkHorse with a drop axle kit in it and had the hitch , tried to move a small trailer with it as it is really easy to steer a trailer with the hitch on the front and I bent the hell out of the hitch ------- on a good note I was able to order the hardware kit from the Jake's leveling kit for a Workhorse with the drop axle an it comes with two outer tie rod end (eyelets as they call them ) , 2 riser spacers , 2 thru bolts and nuts and the 6 bolts and nuts to squeeze the leaf spring retainer plates , it was $39 for that , I have to find some shocks that will work

I never used the hitch (as a hitch) just thought it was a good platform for the springs and tied things together.
