I have a 57 inch top and I’m going to add the rear flip seat kit. Do I need to get the strut kit 01-182?
Eric T on Feb 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Depends on year of cart and make, older club cars ,up until 1999 require strut kit ,unless you can fabricate old strut, our shop does both
We have a club car with a fifty four inch top and has a fold down seat added to the rear to make it a four seater. We would like to add side enclosures dut don't know what we need or if we have to add an extended top to make any covers to fit. DOes someone make a cover enclosure that will fit this design?

BEST ANSWER: We make a 4 passenger enclosure, it would require an extended top which we also carry

It fits
Fits my 1994 DS. You have to cut your own holes which is probably good.

Worked great in the end, but required significant tailoring to my cart
As advertised, these struts were a required add-on to make the rear flip seat kit work with my 1999 Club Car DS. Not advertised (unless you read the reviews), these struts may need to be cut to fit, and Must be drilled to fit. I drilled mine so that they would attach to the back of the canopy in the same orientation as the original, that is, along the back side of the canopy. Drilled 2 holes in bottom of each of 2 struts to attach to frame, bolted to frame, and noticed the struts were 1"+ too long to match up with the plane of my hard-shell canopy. Customer service advised to cut off the 1"+ as would be needed. Drilled 2 more holes in bottom of each of 2 (new length) struts as now needed to attach to frame, bolted to frame, and noticed the struts were too far forward to match up with channel along back-side of canopy. Spoke with customer service again, advised me to rotate struts 90 deg forward so that they align with side channel of canopy (instead of original equipment use of back channel). Drilled 2 more holes in bottom of each of 2 struts (90 deg from previous holes) as now needed to attach to frame, and bolted to frame. Perfect. Was then able to finish installation after drilling 2 more pairs of holes through top of struts, with corresponding new holes through side channel of canopy. End result was great. But really wish the struts came with some guidance as to installation - there were zero instructions. Maybe had I looked things over better before beginning, it would have gone better.
I want to say that when I pointed out to customer service that in the end I had 4 extra hole in each strut, they sent me a new pair at no charge, so I will be able to do a re-install the right way. Kudos to Buggies Unlimited.

Worked but needed drilling
This "candycane" set of two struts was needed to make things work with my DS golf cart. I had to drill some holes and do some work to make these fit, but the finished product is awesome and strong. Standard kits will not work without this kit for my golf cart. Excellent customer service.

pre 2004 struts
If you have an older model club car , these are the old style struts you will need to support the roof. They are candy cane shape and cut to the right length, however they are not pre drilled to match up with the seat back support. The seat back support is pre drilled and makes it easy to match up and use as a template.
