It's time for ball joints, stock replacements or.....

2013 JKU with 90,000mi on it. 2 1/2" lift with 34"x12" tires. Steering wheel is starting to wobble a bit at times when hard braking and at certain speeds. Begining of the death wobble I am afraid.

Found the upper drivers side BJ is a little sloppy. At this mileage I want to replace all four, but which ones to use? Moog? Synergy? Teraflex? Or another brand?

2013 Wrangler Unlimited Sport

Certainly not OEM. Teraflex seems to be in high regards on this forum, Synergy not so much. Dynatrac is often touted as the best, but costs twice as much as Teraflex.

I'm planning on Teraflex for mine.

When mine go, they will be replaced with the Teraflex.

I put Teraflex ball joints on my 2015 around 60,000 miles. I blame Dennis Wood and his videos.
