Pivotal Moments In Dana 30 Building: Synergy HD Ball JointsPosted in How To on November 1, 2012
The Dana 30 is a perfectly fine axle under the Jeep package that drives off a dealer lot. Unfortunately for the Dana 30, it’s a Jeep thing to throw on tons of aftermarket products including bigger tires and engine power products.
These two things, combined with spirited driving, can cause some serious stress on your front Dana 30 axle. This is not news, and many D30 owners have added bigger axleshafts, manual hub conversions, axles trusses, and welded on beefier brackets in an effort to keep Dana 30 axles alive. All this money, parts, and time, and yet the ball joints on most guys’ Dana 30s remain stock. And if there is one point of certain wear whether it’s on-road or off-road, it is the ball joints.
For just a few dollars more than you’d pay for a standard set of Dana 30 ball joints, Synergy Suspension’s HD Ball Joint has a sintered metal-on-bushing design that is much stronger than a plastic bushing type ball joint. Not only that, but Synergy’s joints are fully greasable with grooves on the balls to allow grease to penetrate the entire fixture so all that extra strength lasts longer than a standard ball joint would.
Available for the Dana 44/60 and Chevy IFS Too!
Don’t have a Dana 30? Well, chances are that you’re still seeing premature ball joint wear if you own a Chevy IFS or have a Dana 44 or Dana 60 up front. Synergy has HD Ball Joints for those, too.
