Synergy is the only one to offer the trackbar/sector shaft brace. The others are just a trackbar brace. All 3 are good brands, just look a specs and decide.
Personally, I went with the steersmarts. I had them on a previous JKU and never had a issue so I stuck with the same with my JT build.

just an FYI... if you change out your tierod, look into how to change up your steering stabilizer. I went to a JK style for mine...

good luck with your build.

I'm going through the same dilemma on Tie Rod and Drag Link. I already have the sector brace. Main reason for the brace is you can physically see the gearbox mount flexing when turning with my heavier wheels and tires.
I'm leaning RPM because its aluminum and can take a beating. Steersmarts is proven as well and super beefy. Tough choices.

Yup, sector brace is already on order.
I like the RPMs too...

My gator arrives next week!

Don't forget to take a look at EVO Manufacturing. REALLY heavy duty stuff...One of the strongest products on the market based on their raw materials they use. All their stuff is WAY overbuilt for offroad abuse.

Thanks, I'll add those to the list for consideration.

Couldn't find a sector shaft brace on their site, is that a new product?

They're down near Disneyland, so an easy drive from my house. Their stuff looks STOUT!

AFAIK only Synergy offers a sector shaft brace.

They don't make a sector shaft brace (to my knowledge), you would have to use the Synergy brace.

Hmmm, so it is a huge problem that only ONE company has a fix for? Hmmmm.

Maybe you can get EVO to start making some... I'd but one...It would match my Evo Enforcer 2.5" Stage 2 Plus...

I don't have experience with the products you are asking about but I have had a phone conversation with synergy about one of their products. After a discussion with one their reps we decided their product was not right for my application. I was super impressed they talked out what was best for my jeep even if it meant not buying their product.
