    Your timing is perfect for this video. I had already decided on installing the synergy LA for my JK and was planning to go with a synergy track bar. Love the on-vehicle adjustability, and I've heard the DDBs help with NVH vs. johnny joints. Thanks for sharing your experience!

    Now i just need to save up some coin...

    So far so good from what I've seen. No squeaking what so ever.

    LOL - I'm sure what you have is still a good track bar

    With over 3.5" of lift, I would still recommend a drag link flip and track bar relocation. Currently, I have my JL set at about 3" of lift.

    To be fair, SteerSmart doesn't have a good rep her for a good reason and really, it's all they're own doing. Plus, after seeing their lame ass TRE break on the Rubicon, there's no way I'd be running their stuff.

    I'm thinking of swapping the factory TB & DL with these Synergy pieces along with installing their sector shaft and TB brace. While I'm not experiencing death wobble, I've never been happy
    with the shudders I get in the front end when hitting bumps in the road. Really, it's my only complaint with my JL. Thanks for the write-up!

    As Eddie mentioned there should be no squeaking with this style of bushing.

    Love your installation videos. So easy to follow along. Are you guys going to do a trackbar brace on your JL?

    Yeah, the JL isn't exactly the tightest when it comes to the front end. Was never really thrilled with the OE components.

    Yup, still running a Rancho rear track bar and it's quite as can be. The new DDBs are pretty amazing.

    Yup. That video should be coming soon.

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.
