Synergy or Alloy Ball Joints ( and why )

Going to upgrade the ball joints on my 2012 JKU. Should I use Alloy or Synergy?

or Teraflex?

Word on the street is Alloy is pretty much a knock-off of Poly's design. So you could support the cheaper knock-off and go that route, or buy the OG.

I went with synergy because that's what Davy at Alljeep had in his garage that day and I needed them bad. They were actually his personal ball joints for his rig.

I wanted to go with teraflex because they offer a non-knurled version as well as the knurled version if needed. The TF ball joints were still a few months out at the the time though.

I have a year on Alloys with no complaints. I only bought them because at the time they were $100 cheaper than the Synergy.

I think you are going to get a comparable product with the Synergy, Teraflex, or Alloy ball joints. So pick your brand...

Yup, especially since synergy has since dropped their price, who would you rather support, the originator, or the duplicator?

My money is on my synergy's.

Synergy

...after driving to Clayton Lake from Houston, then back with DEATHWOBBLE kicking in at 30mpg and squealing the 14psi 37"s they are as tight as they were when they were installed.

Soon to be a vendor!!!
Looking for a good Rat Rod JK donor vehicle.
