    Where is the best place on the internet to buy shocks and other EZ go parts? Might be buying a cart and looking for good sites. Thanks.

    I wanted to ask without a full topic hijack....

    I recently picked up a lifted EZGO GXT. Im thinking the shocks are probably shot. Is it pretty common for lifted carts to use the stock shocks with extensions, or to just get a longer shock? if so, whats the preferred shock? One from an ATV?

    Thanks!

    Shock extensions are cheap and work well on the carts, if your building something to beat off road then any coil over ATV shock will work if your handy at makein stuff fit. I have used Honda 300ex in the past

    Thanks Nubs.

    Im not looking to do much fab work, and this will just be for around the yard and property, not really looking to flog it or hit the trails.

    I just figured the shocks on there are over 20 years old, and might need a refresh. Didnt know if it made sense to try and just replace the originals with the same size (and extensions) or source new longer shocks without the extensions, and if there was any benefit to that approach.

    Either way with or without the shock extenders would be fine as long as the open and closed length of the shock is correct. Most auto parts stores can cross reference the shock if you take one of the old ones with you. :twocents:

    Any thoughts on if a car shock will be valved internally in such a way that it would impact the handling?

    I'm not looking to have a Cadillac, but would prefer if it didn't ride like a lumber wagon...

    Honestly I've used both and never really noticed a difference. I usually use golf cart shocks if I'm replacing them.

    Thanks for the real world feedback. I'll have to see how bad the existing ones are. But my guess is that they are shot...
