Default Yamaha g16 Jakes vs Yamaha HD shocks

I have tried the McMaster springs on my rear shocks . When I swapped the springs out I found my shocks were wore out . One , you can push in and it just stays there . It has gotten me by for a while , but I canít put adults on the back . I know the jakes would do the job , but I see some vendors selling Yamaha heavy duty shocks now for half the price . Who else has tried the Yamaha HD shocks and liked them ?

I'm curious about the Yamaha HD shocks as well? Does someone have a link? I used the Jakes on my G16 and they work very well.

I finally put on my heavy duty Yamaha shocks this weekend. I am very pleased with the ride . The cart doesnít wobble anymore and the ride is smooth. I still had a little rubbing on driver side rear turning with passengers. I wound up raising up the black fender a little. It was loose and that solved my rubbing issue. Also , learning to slow down turning around helped 😁 Front shocks will be the next project. The tires look like /\ after sitting a while then look like \ / after riding. Itís worth the money to fix em and be done for years to come . I also went from some brakes to full brakes lately. I got the $25 brakes and bought new spring kits to go with them . So , yammy now handles better , stops , and runs 28 mph . Almost time for the hot setup
