Decided to go with Spicer ball joints, I got all 4 for under $100 from alljeep.com part # 707488X http://www.alljeep.com/oscommerce/pr...ucts_id=167872

I wanted the Synergy ball joints but they want $250 for them...

Also on the way are 4 Moog tie rod ends for the steering linkage. Part numbers # ES3472, ES3473, ES3474, ES3475 (yes there are 4 different ends for the WJ setup)

I also decided to go with the WJ rotors Part # 76793RGS

So I am still trying to decide on how I want to move the track bar above the axle. If I were to use the relocation bracket from JKS that would be easier and I could just shorten my IRO track bar and re-use it but I am not a fan of the track bar being shorter then the drag link.

I really would like a track bar bracket more towards the coil spring, like Mr. Blaine has shown on some of his examples, but then I would have to get rid of my current track bar.
