Lifted Golf Cart
Golf Cart Lift Kits Explained

A lifted golf cart gives your golf cart the clearance it needs for off roading or a custom look that sets it apart from other golf carts.

You can create your own custom lifted golf car - all you need is time and money. There are plenty of lifted carts in Peachtree City - there are especially  a ton of them in the high school parking lot. 

The Club Car on the left is a non-lifted cart and the EZGO custom lifted golf cart is on the right. 

The only problem with driving a lifted cart here in this golf cart community is getting clearance under the tunnels. There are lots of tunnels on our golf cart paths that take us under busy roads, and these tunnels just aren't tall enough for some of the lifted carts.

If you are wanting a golf cart to go off roading or to use on rough terrain, a lifted cart will give you the clearance you need. Depending on what kit you get, you can get 4-8 inches of better clearance compared to a stock golf cart.

When purchasing your kit you will need to know the make, model and year of your golf cart.

What Size Golf Cart Lift Kit?

There are different sizes of lift kits. They range from 3" to 8." The size of the lift kit will be determined by the size of the off road tire you want to use.

The most popular size golf cart lift kit is the 3" lift.  They work great for those who just want some extra height and some bigger tires.  if you don't plan on upgrading your tires and wheels you need to know the size of the tire you have to accommodate the lift. 

Larger wheels and tires make the cart go faster. The wider tires give the lifted golf cart more stability.

Lifted golf carts add extra width to the wheels base.  The increase in width depends on which kit you install.

For those who golf, it's good to be aware that you can't use lifted golf carts on golf courses.

Offset wheels are needed on golf carts with a lift kit. Ordinary golf cart tires will hit the frame.  These kits are specific to your golf cart model, make and year.  The 5 most common lift kit types are Block, Spindle, Axel, A-arm and Long Travel.

Golf cart wheel spacers can give a lifted cart more stability by increasing the axel width of your cart.  Spacers range in size from 1.00" to 2.5".  If you get a 2" wheel spacer then you will increase your width by 4". 

Spacers can be specific to your Club, EZGo or Yamaha golf cart. Here is a selection of sizes at Amazon:

What size tires can you use on a lifted golf cart?

Usually golf cart owners like to use bigger golf cart tires that measure anywhere from 10" to 23" depending on the size of the lift kit.  What golf cart make you own makes a difference as well.  EZGO golf carts can accommodate a larger tire without a lift kit, while a Club Car cannot.
