Synergy Ball Joints ordered!! Oh yea!!!

Well just pulled the trigger and ordered a set of upper and lower synergy ball joints. Hope they live up to everything I have read and heard about them. I never would have guessed a grown ass man could get so excited about ordering s**t for a jeep. Life is good!!

Just did a set, big improvement over stock, we shall see how they hold up. just be careful. I ripped a boot installing mine, but this was my first time installing balljoints.

Lol, a little salt is good for you. And a BJ never hurt anybody either

Leave the boots off till they are in! On the upper joint the boot can sometimes be a bitch to get in because it has to slide inside the knuckle housing ever so slightly and then into the slot on the bj. Just be patient, use a little lube and she'll give it up eventually if she isn't loose to begin with...lol. Good luck.

Definitely remove the lower boots before installing. Make sure your lower zerk is located somewhere reasonably accessible with a grease gun.

The upper boots should be good to go. I've yet to use the C to install uppers though, I put the cap in my BJ kit over the joint, jack stand under the C and 4# hammer the upper in. Seems sketchy, isn't too much effort, it's fast and effective.

Haha, same as we used to do back in high school. Your an animal Goody! With these new bj's I'm a little fearful to do them that way and just use the C and the impact to make quick, uniform work of it.
