The EZGO RXV is an anomaly when it comes to suspension. It's like EZGO decided to combine the support setups from every type of significant golf cart on the market for this unit. Usually, you have either coil-over shocks, typical on Yamaha or leaf spring suspension, commonly used on Club Car and other EZGO models. With the RXV, the engineers over at EZGO decided they needed the whole gamut. You have coil-over shocks up front with leaf spring suspension in the rear that has a dampening E-Z-GO RXV Rear Shock to smooth things out.The golf cart rear shock on your RXV does not provide any outward support. It is just there to offer a fair amount of inward and outward resistance to make sure the spring does not bounce you around like a 90's pop song. If you were to hold it in your hands, you could collapse it with ease, and it would stay closed until you pulled it apart. Give Buggies Unlimited a call and order your EZGO part today.
