Default Yamaha rear shocks - Is there a difference?

I've been looking for heavy duty springs for the rear shocks on my G16. I've found that there are two rear shock/spring combinations made for this cart - One is part # JN3F22100000 and the other is # JN4F221000000.

The ones on my cart are JN3 (stamped into the shock). They claim the JN4 is a "heavy duty" version used on electric carts for the extra weight of the batteries. I can get a pair of the JN4's MUCH cheaper than I can buy heavy duty replacement springs for mine.

Question is - Does a JN4 shock compare to a JN3 with heavy duty springs on it?

I hope someone knows cause I'm clueless (as usual), and don't want to fall for hype

The shocks off an electric will be a little more sturdy but not a great step up. If you are anticipating a great deal of weight on the rear of the cart, I would probably go with the HD spring kit. Check at Auto Zone back where they sale the HD spring and lowering kits for trucks. They have a spring kit for shocks there but I'm not sure if it will work on a golf cart. If I remember correctly, it is only around $20 or $30. Worth checking. Also check on some air shocks. These parts stores have a lot things that can be fabbed onto golf carts.

Dave, I found these shocks at a used atv dealer. They are from a Yamaha Warrior. They are about 4 inches longer than stock and are adjustable. I have them set on the lightest setting and am very happy with them. I think I gave about 30 bucks for them.

Check eBay - Have seen the JN3's for $20 pair and JN4's for $40 pair - both are used and +shipping.
