- Block lift kits are the most economical way to add more ground clearance to your golf cart
- Spindle and Axel lifts are the most popular lift due to the ease of their installation
- A-arm lifts are the best way to upgrade the entire front suspension of a cart
- Long Travel lifts allow you to have a fully independent front suspension
Drop Axle Lift Kit
- Replaces Factory Axle with Heavy Duty Version
- Pushes the axle away from the body
If you are just cruising around the block or coasting down the trails at the park, but you need to lift it up higher than what the block lift allows, the drop axel kit is the way to go. These kits are very easy to install and provide 5″- 6″ of lift allowing for up to a 22″- 23″ tire. These kits replace either the original spindles or the axel with “dropped” versions to lift the existing suspension. This lift kit will widen the wheel base by up to 4″ total.
A-Arm Lift Kit
- Overhauls Entire Front Suspension
- Softer Ride
The A-Arm style lift kit replaces and upgrades the existing suspension in combination with “dropped” spindles, to not only lift the golf car, but to also increase the level of suspension provided. These kits are great for farm work or off-road situations where you may encounter terrain that a stock golf cart wouldn’t normally see or be able to traverse. A-arm lifts are typically available in 4″ and 6″ versions that will allow a tire up to 20″ and 22″ respectively. This lift kit will widen the wheel base by up to 2″ total.
Long Travel Lift Kit
- Fully Independent Front End
- Adjustable Height
The final lift kit is the long travel. This is by far the best lift kit on the market. You are replacing the existing suspension with independent suspension that has an adjustable lift height from 4 to 8 inches, that will allow a tire size of up to 25″. There are two reasons to consider the long travel kit: heavy duty off-road situations, or a soft ride in any situation. Not only does this kit provide the ability to go anywhere a 4 wheeler would, it also softens the ride quite a bit. So, if you are tired of feeling every little bump in the road, the long travel is the lift for you. This lift kit will widen the wheel base by up to 8″ total.
Be mindful of the extra width a lift kit will add to your wheel base, especially if you transport the golf cart in a narrow trailer or in the back of a truck. Each style lift kit will widen the wheel base differently. Also, be sure to take into account the addition of an offset wheel which can add up to 1″ to the wheel base.
