Re: Steering upgarde

We just released our 1-Ton kit as well. What are you wanting to accomplish, and what are your needs? There are a bunch of kits out there, some better in some areas, some better in others. What are your capabilities as far as doing the install yourself? It's easier to help you with a decision if we know what you're working with and what you're looking for.

Re: Steering upgarde

Hello!

I am basically searching a better steering kit with no drilling requirements, i don't care for high steer, that is why I found the synergy kit suitable!

My current setup is Dana 44 with AGR rock ram, hydro steer kit. Kindly assist!

Re: Steering upgarde

I would stay away from any of the "T" set-ups! For that money you could go Currie.

If this is your current setup than no that kit will not work for you. What you listed above is a heavily modified setup. The synergy and teraflex kits are made to work with a stock setup and stock axle. You have neither of those.

What seems to be the problem with your current setup?

No problems I just want a 1 ton setup. The current setup looks skinny with the mods surrounding!

They're not small, did you read the specs?

I meant my current setup, not the currie! Are the TREs changeable in currie kit?

The synergy kit and the currie kit have the same geometry and both are bolts on!

Re: Steering upgarde

Again, your setup is not stock so none of these kits will work for you.

Re: Steering upgarde

Post a picture of the steering setup looking from the front of the XJ showing all the linkages. Someone will be able to recognize the parts and make recommendations.

Re: Steering upgarde

From the picture he posted it looks like he is currently running stock steering.
