Synergy drag link. 5.2 BS

Hey guys...

I'm thinking of getting a Synergy DL for my 13'. Not doing a flip because my springs should settle under 3 inches.

My question is can I run the DL with my 5.2 BS Savegre's. It looks like I can't, but thought someone might say otherwise. I'm running 285/70/17.

I've learned a lot here and appreciate all the helpful people on this forum

Take a pic of your knuckle where the joint mounts

Looks like plenty of room but you're the expert

Do you think I could also fit a Synergy tie rod ?

Been meaning to ask you kjeeper. I have the flipped Synergy DL. I plan on buying new wheels. What back spacing do I need to clear them? Sorry for jacking the thread.

DL no problem. Tie rod might be a tight fit.

I forget which way .. Turn your steering wheel all the way left/right. Or take and rotate the tie rod up towards you. Take not of the clearance between the joint/wheel.

Here's a pic back when I had the 15's

Synergy says max 4 3/4" BS although there might be some fudge room. I think the BS is when flipped. I can't see how their DL wouldn't fit in the stock location like I have.

That's why I'm here to get help from the pro's

4.5/3.75 is most common anyways. The DL TRE is set in, and has plenty of clearance.

ok thanks man. I really appreciate it.

I'll order a DL tonight and think more about the TR. If it looks doable I'll get one down the road a bit.

Thanks again....I owe you a beer
