Looks like the same bracket set up as AEV.

Yes ... You should have already 3" of lift. You have to watch the track bar as well.
Or you can notch the frame and run normal bumpstop and not lose up travel.

Track bar brackets

The track bar has the Teraflex one on the housing and the one on the frame is still there (you may not see it in the photo).

In the photo, the frame is shortened 2" and a lot of the bracketry is cut off. i installed the Poison Spyder BFH stubby bumper and you have to modify the frame a bit.

Thanks guys! I'm going to order the Synergy. That's what my mod shop recommended too.

suicideking Bumping this thread.

What are the options price wise for an all inclusive kit? I already have a Synergy tie rod, so was thinking of going with theirs.

I saw Evo has a kit for $299. Seems like the best deal.
02-10-2013 10:43 PM
kjeeper10 As long as the mount raises the TB 3" it will work.
I think all the kits raise the TB 3" because the DL flipped equals 3"

I bought the "highsteer" kit. So yes it came with their TB bracket and DL.

Only issue was with their flip adapter. The instructions were changed to use a 13/16 drill bit.
People were using 7/8 and oversizing the hole.
Synergy supplied a special adapter for the oversized hole.
The 7/8 drill bit worked for me and still used the original adapter.
Did you use the track bar mount that they recommend? They recommend their own, but I have the Currie bracket.
Thanks

Does your Currie bracket lift the track bar about 3"?

The only question would be clearances during turning...especially around the stabilizer.
Thanks for the info. That's what I was thinking.

I am running a kit from Synergy. It seems to be a good kit. It definitely improved steering feel + my Jeep leans less in corners due to the lift of the track bar too.

AEV's kit works similarly. If you need more strength, you can order the Synergy one as a weld-on. You can also weld on the AEV one. In fact you can get Dynatrac to weld it onto their axle for you if you want.

Yes you will need a new drag link. The stock one has a bend that, when flipped, is bent the wrong way.

Several other brands likely operate similarly. When you flip the DL to the other side of the knuckle, it is up about 3". That means that most are working with similar basic geometry.
