stiffer means the kart will lift MORE not less, assuming the lift you are referring to has to do with the amount of caster.

Stiffer axle, stiffer seat, and a bar in the front = inside rear wheel lifting sooner and higher for the same amount of steering wheel input.  Stiffer seat = less of that movement absorbed by the chassis.
