    Bubba,

    Would you say this is stronger then other tie rods on the market or is it more flexible or both? And just for my confirmation will this fit on a Dana 44 with the Evo drag link flip? I asked because there are certain things I've seen and like but they only fit with aftermarket axles.

    Can't speak for strength but I can speak to flexibility. I drug mine over a rock and it deformed like crazy and came back straight and have personally seen stock ones be bent from the amount of deflection I had. I do have a PR44 but I don't see why it wouldn't fit a stock 44. Also you should have no issues with the Evo flip there will be no clearance issues VideoCapture_20190831-163901.jpegVideoCapture_20190831-155127.jpeg20190608_113410.jpg

    I'm running it on a factory D-44 with the drag link flip.

    I don't know about others on the market, but you can jack your Jeep up with this rod, make it smile really big, and when you take the load off, it will be as straight as the day you took it out of the box.

    Mine has pushed so many rocks out of the way that most of the anodized coating on the front and bottom is gone. I would have gotten a bare one, but he was out when I needed it.

    Other than having it rotate due to forgetting to put lock tight on the jamb nuts, it has been perfect.

    That tie rod looks really stout. Two questions: did you get the finish from Exodus or just rattle can it and which drag link is that?

    7075 is 7075, so I can really say itís stronger than other 7075 aluminum tie rods. I believe itís better than most tie rods available, but Dave (Synergy) and I have had a few conversations about tie rods and his chromoly tie rod technically is stronger. The Synergy tie rod is a specific type of chromoly that bends and goes back straight like the aluminum tie rod, but without an ďexpiration dateĒ. What that means is that the 7075 can only be bent so many times until itís elasticity is diminished, and it stays bent. The reality is though, youíll never hit it against that many rocks. That duty cycle is a ridiculously high number. If you somehow manage to bend it, Iíll gladly replace it for free. What Iím not exactly sure about is if the chromoly Synergy uses can flex as MUCH as the 7075. Iíd think the aluminum could flex more, but I canít make that claim for sure.

    Thank you good to know and I like what I am seeing in the videos about.

    So I havenít wheeled with the new stabilizer on yet... last time out (with the stabilizer removed) the lower tab got bent from the tie rod pushing up into it from a rock.

    Is this normal? Did I mount the shock too close to the tie rod? I was trying to get it as parallel as possible with a little wiggle room. Next time this happens it will be pushing into the lower shock nut for sure.

    How much is it pushing into it? Is it just barely hitting it or what? When I installed my ram, I had to grind the nut down by about half so my tie rod would clear it, but after that it was good.

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.
