Best Parts For Golf Carts on Isle of Palms

Now that we have a great base golf cart to start with lets talk about the best components to build your golf cart to stand the test of time. First lets talk about the rear seat kit. Most rear seat kits come in either a steel or aluminum version, both being powder coated. Steel would be a great choice if you are further inland and away from the harsh elements of the ocean. Steel is also around $75 cheaper than Aluminum. Aluminum would be the better choice for the coastal areas such as Isle of Palms. It does cost slightly more but will be well worth it in the long run. Todays golf cart seats are also backed with plastic compared to only a couple of years ago when they were made with wood which would typically rot off over the course of 3-4 years under normal wear and tear. Aluminum wheels are also going to help you around the coast compared to steel.


If your cart is lifted or you are looking to buy a lifted cart than you want to make sure you use a quality lift kit. All-sports lift kits are made in Florida and have not been outsourced overseas. They have the toughest powder coat in the business that is not going to peel or come off in two years.

If there is one place you want to put your money than look no further than your lift kit that is essentially holding the wheels to the cart. Don't be fooled by cheap knock offs so the dealer can save $50. These are going to be some major components of your cart that will help it last the longest and keep you up and running with many years to come.

Maintenance solutions for you golf cart

Maintenance is going to be play a major roll in your golf carts life span as well. If you can't keep your golf cart inside think about investing in a storage cover. They make storage covers for all size golf carts. Having a storage cover will protect the golf cart from harmful UV rays that will fade and dry out different components on the golf cart. Keeping a clean golf cart will also go a long way in keeping it looking good and making it last as long as possible. WD-40 is going to be your best friend. Lubricants such as WD-40 will keep parts from rusting, keep bushing from drying out, keep moving parts from squeaking, and provide a nice barrier from the salty air.
