I'm looking to buy a 2009 club car with brand new batteries I have looked it over pretty well but not 100% sure what I'm looking at also noticed that the front wheels lean in at the top and have done a bit of research on what that could possibly be....just looking for some input...it's priced well at 5 k, but don't want to get into hidden problems...it rode smooth and quiet....thanks for any opinionsIMG_20220209_113355_01.jpgIMG_20220209_113717_01.jpgIMG_20220209_182357.jpgIMG_20220209_113037_01.jpgIMG_20220209_112853_01.jpg

Thanks!! Those aren't too expensive I believe....do you see anything else in pics that looks weird?or Worn?
Well one other thing it could be. That looks like a off brand lift kit. China don't have the best quality control. So the drop spindle could be a little off direct from the factory. Along with the weak spring could make it look worse. Since there's no adjustments other that toe-in. Replace spring, set toe-in and hope for the best.

Get back to us if you buy it and replacement parts and settings don't cure the problem. I have another way that might fix it. But requires some welding skill.

I've thought camber could be set thru the eccentric or hiems[sp] joints on Club Cars. But with the lift kit it may not be able to be set.

It didn't look like the bushings were that bad, but, its hard to tell from the pics. Many times bad bushings are noisey/rattle.

5k is way too much even with new batteries. I'd pay 2k for it with bad batteries, so add the cost of batteries and there's your price you should offer But is anyone else concerned about the wet spot on the ground under the diff?

Yes it extra bad in the sf bay. People don't seem concerned that the "cheap" gas stations around here are still over $5 a gallon. My truck was impounded yesterday for expired tags and parked on street. That's going to be expensive . I guess I have to sell my cart to get it back but I should be able to get $1500 for it. I have a standing offer of 1k Pretty good since I got it for free and got it running for $15.
