    JL Balljoints, still crappy?

    Just wondering, especially those that went with 37s on stock axles....are the OEM balljoints still as weak as the JK units? How has your rig held up with 37s on the stockers, and do you think a premature upgrade is necessary?

    AFIK there are no upgrades. I'm pretty sure the only JL ball joints available are Mopar replacements.

    I have about 2000 miles and a bunch of offroading shenanigans, no issues.

    I would hope nothing is failing in 2000 miles

    I meant 2000 miles with 37's. But regardless, you're right

    Iím on 38s with 9k, they are tight they just make a lot of noise. Iíve tightened them twice already. But no signs of wear.

    Synergy has some HD adjustable ball joints coming out that should provide a much needed upgrade for the JL/JT. When? Not sure but the JK version just dropped so it shouldnít be long.
