Teraflex

Damn, you guys sure do take a beating over in JK Shangrila and get the sins of others placed on your plate. Good thing you have a good web presence to combat the false information.

The, I'll call it a rumor, is that the Teraflex arms make a lot of noise LOL. I have the Flex-arm system, but I couldn't reply because like most of us here, I was banned for creative ways of mentioning Poly Performance and other enemies of the state hahahaha!

That should go over well there. Teraflex has a very heavy presence there.

So I just got the link to that thread from Joe (the guy who posts over there as "teraflex")....this is the first I've heard of the Tera arms being noisy. I suppose The Internet told him someone's arms are noisy, and he forgot which one?

Oh well, looks like enough people have chimed in to correct him now.

Maybe they aren't greasing them. I grease mine or have it greased before every outing and at oil change intervals. Works like a charm, and quiet too.

Maybe they were mistaking Tera flex for the FULL TRACTION noises.

I've had no problems with my 4" teraflex. Had one issue with the trackbar flexing while turning, posted my problem up on "that other forum" and Joe got ahold of me right away. Overnighted me a one-off gusseted track bar that fixed the problem.

I've seen that trackbar at thier shop, it was a while ago. I probably had the same trackbar that you had origianlly but I have since upgrade to thier newer HD forged one. They claim it to be some 200 something percent stronger than the stock trackbar but if ya ask me, I think it looks like it weighs probably 200 something pounds. That thing is a monster.

He told me they were going to make what I have now the standard track bar but I havnt seen it yet with any of their kits so I figured he did something special for my problem. Have you seen their track bar thats adjustable without taking it apart? Fricken sweet.

There were actually quite a few of those "shark fin" trackbars. For a while they were the piece included in all the kits, which was a big improvement over the first one which turned out to be too flexible. The current "monster bar" replaced that one, and is now a completely different design. It's forged, super-stiff, made with an adjusting sleeve and OEM-type rubber bushings with a rate plate. It's also available as an upgrade for either the original tubular bar, or the "shark fin" bars for about $25 with the exchange of your old track bar.

Here's a picture of the big 'un:

That's what I'm talking about. I still have the flexible first ones, and I've often wondered it was strong enough. I don't know if it's my imagination or if the bend gets bigger each time I wheel. You guys sent me some replacement bushings a while back and I just ran the stock ones with relocation brackets for a while. I finally got around to installing the new bushings and reinstalled the Teraflex adjustable bars a couple of months ago. They seem to be holding, but I do get some axle movement when I have somebody work the wheel.

I've been running your lift since July of 07. I am very pleased with the lift and the support you provide is second to none. I recently had some of my bushings go bad and you guys stepped up to the plate and took care of everything. Thanks.

Back to the track bars. Do we need an RMA or anything to swap them out? I don't mind sending them back first since I still have my factory bars and am using relocation brackets. I can throw them on to get me by until the new ones arrive.

By the way, never a squeak here. People always comment on how quite my Jeep is off road. I guess those hamsters under the hood don't make much noise either.

way to be a good vendor.

Whenever I get to lift my Rubi it will be with a Teraflex kit for sure. Customer service goes a long way in my book.

Sorry for any confusion, but I guess the other guys got everything straightened out.

The exchange deal: Get ahold of one of the customer service guys at Tera (or stop by if you happen to be local), purchase the Monster trackbar for $223.99, and when you ship back your old Teraflex trackbar back you'll get credited $195.99.

For a very limited time (until November 30th, 2008) you can upgrade your non-Teraflex front trackbar too! (not your OEM bar, but any aftermarket trackbar) and get $100 credit for that one.

So, bottom line--$28 plus shipping and your old Teraflex trackbar gets you the forged Monster bar, or $123.99 and your other-than-Tera bar gets you the Monster, until the end of November.

Obviously, factory track bars don't count.

Rotorhead, if you want to send your trackbar in first, then that works out as well--just saves time and one transaction.
