When you buy a $52.00 lift kit, you should know that you aren't getting much - C'mon man........

If I lived in Alaska I might want to buy a heater for the winter ........
When I first look I see a $39 heater further search shows 500-5000 dollar heaters..... I buy the $39 and freeze to death..... Nothing wrong here.
It was just natural selection

I don't recall ever getting a PM / email / phone call from you asking me these questions? If you did, then you would know. Seems to me that you have been looking by PRICE only. When you do that - you get what you just bought...

Your kit is simply a way to add larger tires. Like a body lift for a Jeep - nothing improved, just a way to fit bigger tires...

It really depends upon the intended use for the cart..... you may get along fine with a very inexpensive lift kit if you are just using your cart for transportation around the mobil home park or campgound without any offroading? Those kits do fill a need and a market
