    Need to clear a ruler under the front.
    Hey guys,

    Awesome site. Really glad i found it. Now i'm pretty new to hydraulics and i'm having a hard time figuring out exactly what i need. I'll probably be buying a kit to do this also since i don't have any parts just laying around.

    Basically i will be getting either a 36v or 48v (not sure which) golf cart soon and i would like to find the cheapest and somewhat dependable kit that i can find for it. Mounting it shouldn't be a problem. From what i can tell i just need a one pump setup with one dump and two pistons. I would like to clear a foot under the front tires or at least close to it. I'll start with this for a learning experience and see where it goes.

    Sadly, i don't really know how much the front end weighs, most of the weight is in the middle (on top or in front of the rear tires,) and it will be a deep cycle battery setup. I'll see if i can't shift some weight around, but for now i'll have to assume it will weigh whatever most normal golf carts weigh up front.

    If any one could point me in the right direction for a reasonably priced starter kit they think would work or happens to have first hand knowledge on hooking up a golf cart would appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    I've seen a few topics on here about golf carts about 5 yrs ago. Do some digging and you'll find what you need. Good luck -- keep us posted.

    nice man i think i just scored 5 golf carts. sadly i'm going to have to sell 4 to break even and make money to fix one up. but, aside from my labor i should have either a hopped up electric cart soon or a 14.5hp briggs gasser. heck, gas might even be better for me. i got 3 good car batteries in can strap in the back for now. When this 2+ feet of snow and -20 degree weather clears up IN KANSAS i'll drag the caprice out and start working on it. lol, maybe some day i can buy a nice caddy like some of the ones i've seen.

    should i buy a cheap kit for the front end or just try and piece my own together?

    My bro had the golf cart and some pumps laying around. What could be a more perfect car show cruiser, especially at big ass shows like the individuals picnic in Tulsa?
