Anyone Have Experience With Poly Performance Lifts?

Hey,

So I know some people have problems with people asking about lifts and such, telling them not to post and go search instead. Well, I searched and I've found nothing about Poly Performance lifts, so please indulge me.

I am looking to get a new lift for my '07 and I've been pouring over all the reviews I can find, and from what I've seen, Poly Performance lifts seem to be very nice.

I want a high quality, high performance lift, but I don't really know what I need.

This is what I've kinda been looking at:

Poly Performance JEEP/TRUCK & BUGGY*::*Suspension Kits & Parts*::*Jeep Suspension Systems*::*2007+ Jeep JK Wrangler Suspension Systems*::*Synergy Suspension*::*Jeep JK Stage 4 Synergy Long Arm Suspension System, 3.0"-7.0" Lift - 4X4 Off-Road, JK Syne

As you can see, there are a whole lot of options, drag links, steering stabilizer relocation, shocks, track bars, brackets. I don't know what I need, what I don't, what I might want

I realize this has a large pricetag, and that some of you might think I'm crazy for wanting something this expensive when I don't really even know what I'm talking about. However, my thinking on things like this has always been to go big and then grow into it. In the long run I'll end up saving money rather than having to go through 2-3 lifts and eventually end up with this one. So, that;s my thinking.

Anyways, if someone could give me some guidance as to what I need to make a system like that (or similar to that) work, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

I think they make good products. A friend just put their 3" long arm system on his two door JK, and it seems to work well. The control arm geometry looks to be spot on perfect to me. I was impressed enough that I used their stock length lower control arms on my Teraflex 2.5" coil lift

Don't know about Poly Performance, but another brand you might want to look into is Claytom. Hard core off-roaders swear by the quality and durability.

so first thing to note is, that is a long arm kit. Most folks will tend to agree that jk's dont need long arms, especially for anything less then 4" of lift.

Once you're at a 4" or taller lift, you start to need alot of different components, such as drive shafts and steering component replacements, as well as the lift components.

On top of that, long arm kits require you to add new control arm brackets, and most have you remove the old brackets (aka cut them off), so it's a fairly permanent change.

If you simply want a good lift, but want flexibility, look into any mid/short arm kit with adjustable control arms. 2 good examples are rock krawler and teraflex, who make a range of kits between 2.5 -5.5", and the only different between any of the complete kits is just the spring height, which means if you start with say the 3" lift, and want to go to the 5" lift, all you need to do is replace the springs (cheap) and adjust the track bars and control arms. Personally, I would recommend that, as it makes it very easy to customize your jeep to your needs, and adjust the ride to whatever you desire.

PolyPerf/Synergy make good parts. I am running their track bar braces and they are beefy. Several of the off-road magazines have installed Poly lift kits. Here are some articles I was able to find.

I've had a Poly/Synergy Stage III on my JK since November 2007 and it's performing as well now as it did when I installed it. All the Currie Enterprises Johnny Joints and bushings are still in great shape and the only maintenance I've done is grease them once a year or so.

Apples to Apples Synergy lifts are not as expensive as you would think. They also have some advantages that other lifts don't have like controls arms that can be adjusted in place etc.

EAD is a Synergy vendor, if you have questions or need quoted please PM me.

Although I have no first-hand experience with their lift kits, I have HEARD and SEEN good things about Poly parts.

Other kits of that caliber to consider are the higher-end Rock Krawler PRO and MetalCloak GameChanger kits.

Poly is a re-seller for Synergy. Synergy suspension IMO is right up there with the better company's.

I've got the 3.5" Poly Performance lift on my 2012 JKU. I love it, it rides amazing on the highway and performs great off-road. Dennis at Xtreme Unlimited in Oceano, CA. uses them all the time and recommended it. They are made here in our County also and I like to purchase local whenever I can.

Dennis is a really good guy, I'm sure he would gladly answer questions about the Synergy products since he is very familiar with them and the company in general.

I love their products! The control arms are heavy and easy to adjust without taking them off. The track arms and mounts are equally great

I actually had the Poly Performance full skids put on last week. They are really nice, fit is excellent and there's plenty of clearance. The oil plug access hole is nice and large also, not that I care since I get free oil changes from the dealer At least I won't hear them complain.
