So I'm about to pull the trigger on getting the "death wobble cure kit" from Kevin's Offroad...then I remembered seeing the same bracket and tracbar offered at IRO. So I started reading and comparing the two. From behind the PC I can't for the life of me see a significant difference to justify the $325 vs $189 price difference.
So I turn to my fellow jeep family for real world experience. KOR tells me they can't make the comparison because they have no experience of the IRO parts. Well I get that, but generally a competitor will be able to say theirs is better for some reason or another wouldn't they? I don't doubt the quality of either, as I think they both are great companies and great products and excellent made, but is it worth the extra $$$ to get the KOR part? The price difference in my situation could cover a new set of lower front control arms...but I don't want to jeopardize the steering safety for those.
So anyone with experience of both please chime in. I'm looking to buy in 2 weeks or less so the feed back is much needed in a hurry.
Doesn't the KOR kit come with their 60d track bar bushings? I have a set of those on my wife's WJ and they were what finally cured the DW we had issues with. Before that we were using the IRO fixed track bar and the urethane bushings they come with. Functionally that's probably the biggest difference.

I have the IRO track bar as well. Seems pretty beefy to me, a local 4 wheel shop made me an aluminum bushing for it when I took it in for an alignment because everything was brand new up front and I still had death wobble. Only issue I've had with it is the bushing end on the unibody side snapped on me the other day while driving in my neighborhood, emaild IRO last night with some pics to see if they could send me a new one, however I havnt heard back yet. I will say that every other time I've called or emaild them for anything else they have been super helpful and I'm sure this time will be no different.
