Steering upgrade?

Ok so I have worn out my steering ends. Tie Rod ends and drag link ends have excessive play. The ball joints seem to be good still. But the TR and DL aren't bent. With 24,xxx miles and only 6k on lift and Iroks and the ends are worn out I'm looking to upgrade to something that will last longer. I know I could get Fusion 4x4 2.5 ton, but it's $1k and overkill. If I need that much beef then I will need one tons too. What do you have personal experience with that would fit my needs? Looking for something stronger with easily ordered replacement ended that aren't too expensive.

I was looking at synergy. Are there other options for my needs that I haven't seen

TREs are available locally, that's good... Rough Stuff TREs I heard don't hold up as well as GM TREs. So I skipped past their. Synergy looks good for my application but you don't know till you ask. I would like to eventually get hydro assist and true 37s so it's nice to hear they hold to that.

RK stuff is a little to much for me right. It seems every company now has a DL flip kit or forged Tie Rod these days. But if the TREs don't hold up then it's not helping me.
