Steering 2013 JK

Have a '13 JK sport on a Teraflex 2.5" lift. Death wobble is getting bad so I'm looking at getting an entire front end done. Any recommendations on high steerkits? Looking at the Teraflex High Steer kit. Looks to be most complete.

high steer will not fix DW. Before you start the replace the front end thing. You need to find out why it is.
1# Tires balanced correctly.

2# track bar issues. The factory track bar has some very poorly made bushings. The bolts tend to crush the inner sleeve. This leads to looseness. It can be missed even doing the steering test. One way i found to tell if its FUBAR. try to remove the bolts if they pull out the bushing sleeve is ok. If the bolt seems stuck. The sleeve has deformed. just righting it more ends up just making it worse.

3# if everything in the suspension is ok. what is your caster angle?

I'm replacing everything. Track bar, drag link, tie rod, bushings, and stabilizer. That was the plan from the beginning

If that's all you going to replace you still need to check your ball joints.

Synergy parts are a great system to run. I know a lot of us run them including me.

What do you need a stabilizer for?

On the trackbar make sure the holes are not jacked up. If the trackbar bolts weren't tight enough they can distort the hole.

And the stock steering stabilizer works fine. Don't waste your money on a fancy one unless you get really want something shinny up front.
