Got the EVO draglink flip kit, the instructions were vague and the pics were too dark to see parts and locations. They did say drill the knuckle to 13/16 . But then after looking at their website I found it said 7/8 drill bit required for the knuckle. So thinking the website was current I got he 7/8 and drilled installed the draglink and it felt tight and right. Now i get under the jeep to do a 500 mile retorue of my bolts and noticed alot of movement in my drag link end where I drilled the knuclkle for the sleeve. I removed it and the sleeve is cracked in half. WHat are my options if I should have done the 13/16 like the paper instructions said am I screwed. Or if I did it like EVO's website claimed and told me to use the 7/8. what can be done to remedy this Its my DD and I have limited time to get it on the road again. Plus it has ruined my 4th camping and trailing trip. anyone please can I get some sound advise I am desperate.

I have been there... did that same exact thing!

Synergy's flip kit uses a 7/8" sleeve, NorthRidge sells it alone. Item number: SYN8001-03-01 - $10.00

Get that, fit it in and see if it fits your hole or not, I had to enlarge my hole with a 15/16 bit to get it to fit all the way in. After that I used Red Locktite on the drag link nut and it hasn't moved since, checked it 100 miles ago.

Good luck!

Shoulda called EVO mfg and ask them, or mesure the busing they sent you?

Measure twice, cut once.

Call Evo Mfg on Monday... I'm sure they will take care of you.

When I did the same they weren't able to help at all. After a few hours of research I found the Synergy part.
