    Coming from someone who runs and likes their Metalcloak suspension. Their tie rods have a bad reputation, and from what I have seen, for good reason.

    Someone will post up a pic of metalcloak's frowning tie rod.

    Edit: Smiling tie rod. See post #8

    They're great if you want to look at a constantly flopped tie rod. And deal with stupid fucking spring retainers that are supposed to hold the boot onto the rod ends.

    Ironically I just got a quote from Bubba at Exodus Jeeps today for a 1.5" tie rod he makes in-house with GM 1 ton TRE's for $250.00. Comes powder coated too for that price.

    They actually changed the boots recently, they don't fall off anymore.
    Agree about the flop though. I had to use the misalignment spacers when I installed hydro.

    I used synergy tie rod and ram assist and never had a problem with a floppy rod. It can be setup to not flop and will take a pretty good beating.
    But I would go with the Exodus Jeeps rod. I have seen them in person and they are badass.

    I have all the Synergy steering upgrades as well as ball joints. I’m a fan. I’ve banged my tie rod on several rocks and those things are stout. Can’t go wrong with them IMO.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve 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.
