Steering stabilizer relo on newer Jeeps.

What are the guys with the 2011 and up Jeeps doing for their steering stabilizer relocations?

Not sure what year they made the change, but I know the early model JK's you can rotate the mount on the tie rod and use a relocation bracket by the trackbar.

My tie rod has the stabilizer mount that welded on and if I broke the welds to rotate it the stabilizer mount would be on the wrong side... So what are you guys doing?

My stock stabilizer has been thrashed since I first took it off road. I have a replacement for it but don't want to put it on until its relocated.

There are several brands out there. JKS works good well made. I used synergy but if I where to do it again I would use JKS.

Those work on the axle side mount, I'm trying to figure out what the guys with the new style mount on the tie rod do on the tie rod end. I'll post up pics tomorrow if no one knows what I'm talking about.

I know what you are talking about but the factory tie rod clamp (mount)on my 2011 wasn't welded. I just went thru this nut roll. Seems some aftermarket vendors weren't aware of the change.

I'll have to take a closer look at mine, if its not welded maybe I can make it work. What did you do?

JKS is good stuff but you can't use with OEM stabilizer.

I decide to relocate the factory SS up and out of the way so I order the Synergy relocation bracket: Synergy Suspension*::*Synergy Suspension Jeep JK Steering Stabilizer Relocation Kit

I installed it and then loosened the tie rod mount and rotated it 90 degrees so the stud for the SS was vertical (12 o'clock position).
I mounted the SS on the relocation bracket but when I tried to put it back on the factory tie rod mount, I discovered it would bind when turning the wheels.

So I ordered the Synergy tie rod clamp: Synergy Suspension*::*Synergy Suspension Jeep JK Steering Stabilizer Tie Rod Clamp

The factory SS would mount but in order to not have any bind, I had to have the tie rod clamp so the SS mounted on the back of the tie rod.

So I emailed Synergy with some pics and one of their techs contacted me. At first he didn't believe me but two days later he called and said Jeep had made "some changes" for the 2011 and newer JKs. Said Synergy was bringing in a 2012 to look at the SS and tie rod.

In the meantime he sent me the other relocation bracket: Synergy Suspension*::*Synergy Suspension Jeep JK Synergy Suspension Steering Stabilizer Relocation Kit and a Fox SS. This setup worked ok. After installing it I believe this relocation bracket would work with the factory SS and factory tie rod clamp.
