Spyntec or Dynatrac which is better?

I have a 2007 dodge 83000 miles and both wheel bearings have failed " go figure". I plan on going with the free spin hubs, but I have looked at both spyntech and dynatrac. Spyntec is cheaper in price and sticks out further than dynatrac. I would just like to know which is better.

it's your choice, both are good & are considered much stronger than stock. I chose spyntec with cost being the concern. once you do the kit new axle universal joints & ya might as well do ball joints @ the same time then decide if it is important to have hubs stick out a bit further.
happy with my kit, nice improvement in truck feel & power feels better not pushing front end.

Spyntec is right here in Ohio. North Lima i want to say. Plus he has a dually kit that is complete and no spacers are needed.

I have Spyn Tec, and I am very pleased. The Warn lockouts are $50.00 more. I went with the Mile Marker, and they're just fine.

Just installed Yukon Free spin kit. Price comparible to spyntec. Decided to go this route cause it seems spyntec can't keep up with demand. Backordered 4-6weeks from sites I researched. Found Yukon kit for $1750CAD all in delivered to my door. Sticks out 2.5" past stock rim hub caps. Will stick out less when I install aftermarket rims with 4.5" baqckspacing compared to factory 6" back spacing. Components seemed to be high quality, forged spindles, 4140 chrome moly 1.5" 35splined outer stub shafts (factory = 1.25" 30 spline), timken bearings, warn hubs. Fitment issues was disappointing. Had to grind down spindles to fit ABS sensors, studs 1/4" shorter than factory. stud splines very tight in hub assembly. Had to grind down slightly. Had to polish stub shaft where ujoint caps due to being too tight for my liking. I checked ball joints with magnetic dial indicator. Top Ball joints speced at 0.008" & bottom Ball joints were tight. All well within factory tolerences. In all, the R&R took approx 10hrs with included mods + drilling out hub caps with 4.5" hole saw. Havn't drove enough to see if I'm getting the 1.5mpg increase as promised but like the fact that I wont be wearing out all new U-Joints that initiated the install. Original OEM uni-bearings w/ +160K miles were still good, but decided to be pro-active. Stealership wanted $565CAD per side so the kit was only +/-$600 more than OEM to convert.

overall I think that the dynatrac kit is the "best" out of them, but all others are just fine. The reason I feal the dynatrac is the best is their hubs are machined steel that allow the wheels to sit exactly in the stock location. The dynatrac kit comes very complete with great instructions and its easy to install. Dynatrac also has great customer service and will make an issues right asap. With that said I personally feal you cant go wrong with any of the kits out there, they are all very comparable.

I decided to spend the extra money on the Dynatrac kit with Warn hubs. I figured if I'm gonna be spending that kind of money, I may as well get the kit that will have the highest resale value. If the day ever comes that I sell my truck, I know the kit will sell instantaniously in the classifieds for a fair price. It's gonna be a great investment that's gonna more than pay for itself multiple times.

Both are quality kits but have their trade offs. Dynatrac doesnt stick out as much but has the open abs ring , the sryntec has the enclosed abs ring but sticks out at least another 1- 1.5" more than the dynatrac.

your gonna be impressed on the difference the kit makes. Just get some good lithium based syn grease, install the kit and dont look back.

Spyn Tec

The Timkin bearings them selves make the biggest difference in the front end. The icing on the cake is the lockout hub! If a bearing is ever needed for the front spindle, you're looking at about $40.00 to $50.00. Instead of $250.00........... And they're so much easier to replace!

I insalled the Dynatrac kit last year and have nothing but good things to say about it.. I have never installed somthing like that in my life but with their detailed instructions and customer service it was a breeze. their parts are quality and didnt require me to drill or modify my rims.
