First if you back the golf cart into the truck more of the weight will be forward of the rear axle and easier to compensate for. The front of the cart is super light as all it has is the front axle. All the weight is towards the rear of these carts.

I would then highly recommend air bags. Air bags will give you better control of the weight on the truck itself. If you're not loaded 5 lbs is all you need in them.
