    JL JOURNAL : Synergy Front Track Bar Reinforcement & Sector Shaft Brace INSTALL

    In a quest to find the source of his death wobble, doubletapdaddy here on WAYALIFE.com filmed and posted up an interesting video clip and in it, you can clearly see his steering box pulling away from the frame rail and moving back in again as he turns his steering wheel to the left and to the right. And, while I'm reluctant to say that this is the cause of his death wobble, I will say that it can't be helping anything. Fortunately, Synergy has a solution for this movement and it's with their all new track bar reinforcement bracket/sector shaft brace. This thing is designed well, seriously beefy and you can be sure that once installed, any deflection you might be seeing in this area, will be a thing of the past. We hope that you find this installation video to be both informative and helpful to you.

    ADDENDUM: I spoke with Synergy after posting up this video and was told that they now have new instructions and in them, they recommend that you apply blue loctite on the two bolts that secure the sector shaft brace to the track bar reinforcement bracket.

    Really cool part. Surprised no other aftermarket guys came out with it.
    It seems it got colder towards the end of the video

    It’s for sure good reassurance that there will be no movement. Like you said, even if yours doesn’t have it, a little bit of extra Made in the USA strength never hurt anybody.

    Exactly. I'd be lying if I said this was something I needed but I am glad to have it.

    You did a pretty good job of hiding it. Could tell in your voice and you weren’t as chipper as you normally are. Lol

    Sucks you got sick. Seems everyone I know has been sick. Shitty time for it too with the fun weather you guys had come through.

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.
