I have well over 100K miles on Synergy ball joints. Others have had trouble with them. Make sure you grease them each time you change the oil. Do some research. Teraflex, Rare Parts, Dynatrac, Synergy, alloy usa... Lots to choose from

Definitely just get what you can afford. Keeping in mind paying for install if you can’t do them yourself.

I went with the Taraflex over the synergy or aloy USA because of there adjustable lower. As they start to ware out you can tighten them so they last longer. Have a 1.5 years on them w/37s and maybe 9k miles. Still haven’t had to adjust them ( not that I think I should be that soon).

I've been running Synergy ball joints in a Teraflex R44 housing for five years and about 45k miles. I check them often, still tight as a tick. I give them a squirt of lube at every oil change. Maintenance seems to be the key to long life with the Synergys.
