Shock absorbers are an important part on any motorized vehicle, but are especially important if you're planning to go off-roading or need your golf cart to handle quick turns.
Essentially, shock absorbers work alongside the springs in your vehicles suspension system to make sure your cart is able to handle sharp turns and rough terrain without slamming the body of your cart into the ground.
They also keep your drive nice and comfortable by absorbing the impacts from the springs in your golf carts suspension system.
Without a good set of shock absorbers, not only will you risk damage to the suspension system and body of your golf cart, but you could face personal injury if your back ends up having to absorb the shock of a rough spot in the path instead of the golf cart parts that were designed for it.
Shock absorbers also ensure that all four tires of your golf cart maintain contact with the road at all times.
If your golf cart's shock absorbers aren't functioning the way they're supposed to, both you and your passengers are in for a bumpy and uncomfortable ride. It's important to make sure that the parts of your golf cart are well maintained for the safety of you and your passengers, as well as the longevity of your cart.
If you're noticing that your ride is more bumpy than usual or your golf cart just doesn't handle the way it used to, it may be time to replace your shock absorbers. Watch the video below to learn how you can replace the shock absorbers on an E-Z-GO golf cart!
