Default G-16 Front End Problems?

I am new to this site and have a question. I am looking at buying a 1998 G-16and noticed that the front tires are both cambered in a lot at the top. Didn't have time to get underneath the cart and inspect why. Is this usually a king pin or bushing problem or is it possibly something more serious?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Welcome to BGW!!!

Should be king pins & bushings and/or weak shocks.

Now "who's the man"? I agree, there is no adjustment for camber on Yamaha's. Jack up the front end and grab the top and bottom of the tire, if it moves ...king pins and bushings. Lets hope it's not the shocks...there kinda spendy. Good luck on your new "ride". Later dave

Welcome to BGW. Is this cart lifted? If so, it could the front lift (shock area) out of alignment.

No the cart is not lifted, all original at this time. It appears that the shocks are ok, problem is kingpins and bushings. Thanks for the help.

No problem. They are easy to replace and fairly inexpensive.
