I really like the Synergy Trackbar bushings and the way they adjust. Also the 2.5s with the 3.5 springs make for an amazing ride.

    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    Buy once cry once...haha. Get more than what you feel you'll need. That way you don't end up replacing aftermarket parts. Its about time you start the build...haha

    I'm sure the overland drop brackets do wonders for suspension geometry but even my stock control arm mounts took some minor damage and rock rash. If you are planning on doing serious rock crawling I would not run them.

    I was not pleased with the EVO track bars, the track bars themselves are very well built and are heavy duty but I was going through bushings on mine. Replaced both the frame and axle side bushing in my front one in only 5K miles. The rear destroyed the frame side bushing once in about 10K miles. I'm still running the rear and its held up since the last bushing replacement but have switched to Synergy in the front.

    I just replaced my 3.5" Enforcer stage 2 plus kit with EVO long arms and coilovers, I was really pleased with how it rode and performed with exception to the track bar bushings.

    Truth be told, Iím eyeing the high clearance long arm.

    Been working 12 hr days 6-7 days a week for almost a year. Could be a lot worse, but doesnít leave much time for wheeling.

    Thereís an outside chance I just full tilt with the LA. Noted on the trackbars. Iíve heard others being happy with the synergy products. Thanks for sharing.

    I wish....but Iím employed and able to provide for my family and do great work. Had two coworkers leave and then a hiring freeze about a year ago. This wonít be permanent, I hope. Lol.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
