Again, sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. However, I'm a firm believer in the one-in-ten rule: for every one person who encounters a problem with a product, chances are there are 10 (or more) people who are satisfied.

I personally installed my Synergy ball joints, greased them initially, greased after a break-in of about 1000 kms (regear break-in period), and now regularly with oil changes. I've beaten my rig offroad, she is my DD, and I've had her up in the lift and she's given me no indication of worn ball joints whatsoever.

I'll be sure to keep you posted if I encounter any problems.

I'd highly encourage all end-users of Synergy Ball joints to chime in - whether positive or negative to get a real feel about how this product is. If they are problematic - I'm sure that everyone would like to know. I've scanned the threads about the comparisons between the Synergy ball joints and the stock ones - between that and the price - that is what sold me in the past. So far so good.

I'm not saying synergy is junk either because I have a lot of synergy parts and they have held up very well but the ball joints to me where pretty disappointing. I did email them to see what there input is and if they will warranty them. Still waiting to hear back. I could have just got a bad batch

Installed mine last November and I've put around 10k miles on them with 35s. No signs up anything loose up front (all synergy components).
Lots of hard offroad, hundreds of miles off nasty washboard, sand, snow, mud, water etc.
I greased mine on installed, frequently initially and now at least every 3k miles when I change the oil. More often if I've been in lots of water/mud or ******d the underside with a pressure washer.

Are you sure that they failed? You started a thread “Synergy ball joints” were I posted (post #6) to explain what you are most likely experiencing with the used Synergy’s in hand.
