On most modern golf carts a rigid or semi-rigid suspension system is used. This means that they are not typically equipped with independent suspension. For this reason, leaf springs are installed on most golf cart models, which provide about 95% of the suspension of the golf car. All the shocks typically do is to help limit the amount of the travel of the suspension. If you had only leaf springs and no shocks, your ride would be extremely bouncy as there would be nothing to limit the travel. However, Yamaha is a bit different in this respect than other golf cart brands. They do not use any type of leaf springs at all.
