Review & Install Video
Today, we're going to talk through the installation of this track bar, which is a very simple one out of three-wrench installation. This is going to bolt directly in place of that factory track bar. Then, you just have to get it adjusted to center the axle. The whole process shouldn't take you more than an hour to complete, but we'll talk more about that install in just a second. We're also going to talk through the construction and a few of the features of this track bar. An adjustable track bar will allow you to completely re-center your axle underneath your Jeep after you've installed a lift. A beefier and stronger track bar like this one will also help to eliminate any wobble that you might get from running a much larger tire on your Jeep and having your factory track bar flex. This track bar, in particular, is a very well-built one. However, it still has factory rubber-style bushings on both ends. But it carries a price tag that's closer to some of the track bars that have a heim joint on one end. So you are still getting something that's very high-quality. You are getting something that you can adjust while it's installed on the Jeep. But you're not getting the additional flex that you would get out of a heim joint, and you're still paying a little bit of a higher price. I'm not saying that that's necessarily a negative. Synergy does make a really high-quality product. But if you are on a budget and you're looking for some less expensive track bars, there are some options that have rubber ends like this one that are going to save you a few dollars. This track bar is made of inch-and-a-quarter, solid barstock, and you have a heavy-duty rod end over here that is made of Chromoly, making it very, very strong. This has a slightly different adjuster on the end of it than we see on a lot of the other track bars on the market. This will be able to be adjusted while it's installed on the Jeep, which is something that it shares with a lot of the other track bars on the market, not all of them. But most will have two clamps and an adjustment sleeve. This has a threaded adjustment collar, and then a clamping bolt. It's just a little bit of a different style. I don't think one is necessarily better than the other one. But it is something to point out that that is a slight difference. So to get this installed on your Jeep, again, is a one out of three-wrench installation that shouldn't take you more than an hour to complete with just some hand tools. The first step is removing your factory track bar, which you can do by removing the bolt on the frame side and the axle side, and pulling that track bar out of the way. After that, you'll install one end of this track bar onto your Jeep using the factory hardware. Then, loosen up the adjustment nut, and lengthen or shorten the track bar so that the bolt hole will line up on the other side. Once you have both bolts installed, you can go ahead and take some measurements, look down the side of the Jeep, and use that adjustment collar in order to get the axle completely centered underneath your Jeep before you tighten down that clamping bolt. Again, this is an easy install that anybody can do in their driveway. This track bar is going to come in at right around $225, which is going to be a little bit more expensive than some of the other track bars on the market that have rubber ends on them. Generally, some of the more expensive track bars are going to have a heim joint on one end, giving you a little bit more articulation. Now, you are getting a very strong track bar that is adjustable on the Jeep for your money, and you are getting the Synergy name brand, which does hold some weight. Synergy makes some very high-quality products. So if you're interested in purchasing this track bar, if you have a slightly higher budget, I would definitely recommend it. However, if you're just looking for an adjustable track bar with solid rubber ends and you're not as interested in the name brand on it, you can probably save a couple dollars by going with one of the other ones available. So if you're looking to install an adjustable front track bar on your Jeep to completely center that front axle underneath the vehicle and have something that's much stronger than factory, so you're not going to get any flex, I think this is going to be a nice option, as long as you have a higher budget. So that's my review of the Synergy Front Track Bar, fitting fall 2007 and up JKs, that you can find right here, at extremeterrain.com.
