Haha. Just for the time being, prob getting it regeared over the winter, then I'll be at 5.13's.

But in the meantime I really haven't been that disapointed yet, as I don't daily drive it and so I've really only been driving it to the trails and on the trails its more than enough with the 4:1 that the Rubi has. Even the ride to the trails isn;t that horrible with OD off.

Brown Santa dropped off a couple packages today for a bit of a front end overhaul and to help me stop the 35's, brakes are due up anyway, so might as well try some black magic! A couple more packages will be here later this week as well!

What led you to decide on getting the Synergy's ? My LJ is going to need ball joints sooner or later and I havent made up my mind what I am going to put back in . I like the ideas behind the Synergy , but I havent read a lot about them on the boards ... I guess thats a good thing ?

I like the design and a guy in my club had just gotten them a few months ago as well and has been impressed so far. Also they were cheaper than the Napa Chassis ones that my buddy just picked up, so I figured I'd give these a shot.

Well, one side is done. Ball joints were a pain in the A. Didn't have much time to install the brakes, but that will be cake, once I find more time. Will be finshing up the other side tomorrow and then throw on the Currie steering and align. If all goes well I'll do the brakes, but not going to push it.

Wish it didn't get so dark out so early, sucks working outside in the driveway... Really need to get my Jeep a garage.

Thanks man! The corners have helped out a few times as I rubbed on rocks/trees while wheeling, so they fucntion as well as they look. Plus I got a crazy deal on em.

Do you have a ball joint press with the 4wd adapter kit ?

Yea. It was more a pain because this is the first time I've done ball joints myself on any vehicle. But I think the other side should go a bit quicker now. It was just annoying to get the press lined up to make the ball joints go in evenly. It would help having a third arm.
