Actually you don't need the complete flip kit as you have already installed the lower Trackbar bracket. all you need is the flipped draglink. You can use the factory Mopar RHD unit and a tapered sleeve or get a heavier unit like Synergy.

All of these flip kits come with a trackbar bracket they say you have to use. I am hoping I can keep the track bar and drag link parallel with the geometry if I just flip the drag link and just leave their trackbar bracket out. JKS was not much help on that issue.

Call AEV, they may offer just the factory MOPAR RHD draglink and tapered bushing. Otherwise Poly Performance does sell the Synergy flipped draglink only. You will need to drill or hone out the knuckle to install the flip draglink no matter which one you choose.

If you have the time remove the JKS Trackbar bracket, put your Trackbar back in its original mounting place and try that. At this point that will determine what issues the JKS bracket is causing you.

Don't get the RHD piece from aev. Crappy stock quality. Might as well get a quality part.

I have the synergy tie rod so I guess I am getting the synergy flip drag link kit. I dont think I need to use their front trackbar relocation bracket with my jks kit since both raise the bar.
