Poly vs Teraflex

Hey guys, just wanted to get some input. I currently run the poly draglink flip with the track bar relocator. I just bought a Teraflex long arm kit and it came with a draglink flip and framebrace. My question is do I just keep the poly and sell the Teraflex or do I install the Teraflex and sell the Poly.

Keep the Poly and see if you can return or exchange the unopened Teraflex towards other parts.

Used parts are worth about 1/2 of new. You'll get more value if you exchange the new stuff.

Lol. I have the Poly axle bracket with the TF track bar, Poly frame side brace and TF drag link. I originally installed the Poly steering correction kit, which was the poly bracket and drag link. I hated the drag link because it was a PITA to adjust. I switched to the TF drag link, which is really a stock RHD unit, because it's easier to adjust. I also tried a Poly track bar, but I hate heim joints on the street so I went back to the TF Monster. So, now I have a JK that works, and a pile of expensive extra parts.

Sell the TF stuff and be happy with what you've already installed!

hey guys, Thanks for the input. I think Im going to do what Sok66 did. Because the Poly drag link is a pain to adj. And as much as I wheel I am always straightening my steering wheel.

My poly took me like 10 seconds to adjust when I put mine on. How come it is so hard for you?

I would go with Poly.

I have had zero troubles adjusting the Poly drag link. Done it many times.

I have a Poly 3" weld on on my PR44 with Reid Knuckles. Poly draglink, tierod, and frame side brace. TF monster trackbar. It all plays nice together. I have an expensive Fox steering stabilizer in the garage I've never installed or needed in the 40,000km I've put on since these mods with 37" MTRs. I would never use a draglink flip kit that uses an OEM right hand drive draglink.
My stock draglink lasted around 30 or 40,000km and then I suddenly got huge death wobble. It was replaced under warranty and fixed the problem but why do a mod with an inferior OEM piece? That was with 305/65/18 BFG All Terrains. Theres a few kits out there with the OEM right hand drive draglink, IMO stay away from them.

All good points. I think my issue with my poly is user error. I think I put the adjustment sleave in too far. i am just worried about tweaking that sleeve if its out to far.
