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.
