Who can show me a worn out axle end or frame end flex joint on a stock JK track bar? They dont bend either unless they get yanked on as a recovery point.

Steering kits and trackbar relocation from aev utilize factory components for a reason. Having those componets will allow full use of long travel shocks without binding up steering links that 2.5" lifts are limited by without further modification.

Nth degree recognized these things early on and produced parts that work and utilize proven components. 4" of lift with near stock geometry including draglink and track bar angles.... Go figure.

The biggest difference I noticed is the road shock when hitting road cracks and potholes. The brackets definitely made them less noticeable.

I actually ordered all but the front lower controls initially with the intention of retaining the brackets, but it seemed stupid. I would not really be taking advantage of the control arms if I didn't use them all anyway. Plus If I recall correctly the metalcloak front lower arms can't be adjusted to stock length. I can't really move the front axle around much with the larger diameter aev springs, synergy sector shaft brace etc, tight clearance in there and moving things around more may create an issue.
