Yep... another ball joint thread

I picked up a d44 front housing that i've been building over winter for the spring time...

Seriously considering getting some rcv shafts (black friday deal) and I'm thinking I should do ball joints after the truss/gussets are welded on.

I've been reading not too many good reviews on the synergy joints, What other options are there? I also read that dynatrac has fitment issues with rcv's?

I was just looking at options yesterday. Rebel off road installs Teraflex Ball Joints. Mixed reviews for those as well but they offer a lifetime warranty. But I have learned it doesn't matter what it is, there is always someone who will love it and another who will hate it.

Absolutely true. Only problem with TF joints is they dont fit the 2013's and newer without grinding the knuckle.

I would check with TF, but I guess that won't happen until Monday . Do they sell their diffs with RCV's and their joints?

I have had two sets of DynaTrac BJ's and have never had a problem with them.
I have RCV's with my current set...all is good.

I assume you're really happy with the set up?
