It would be nice to have a fully independent suspension in any golf cart. My questions right of the top of my head would be:

1) What rear differential did you use and where did you get the axles and other parts?

2) What engine are you using?

3) How does it work for you and what kind of speeds are you running?

4) Any bump steer your dealing with?

Im using a g22diff with some homemade stub axles to a Chrysler gem car fronnt suspension. I have had some bump steer but i was able to correct it by relocaring the steering rack a little higher than normal as for the motor i have a vanguard 16hp and it runs about 55 and that's just fine for me

I understand the axle set up now. I guess you probably used the hubs from the gem as well.

For a good ride independent suspension would be leaps better than the swing arm set up of the regular golf cart. Even at it's best with a 3 or 4 link set up on a golf cart the type suspension you built is still a much better one.

Some good work you did on the fab of this one.

I figure from looking that you probably built the A-arms for the rear, but I could be wrong. I like the over all look, but like a bit more height myself. The width looks very good!
