Any word on synergy/ carli / thuren 14+ steering parts?

So about a month ago my wheel flew off on the highway thanks to a discount tire goon. My steering got very sloppy after the rotor slammed the pavement. I have 35" toyos, thuren coils and Trac bar so I'd rather not put a mopar pitman arm and tie rod if I something aftermarket is coming out soon. Also need a new steering stabilizer do y'all like the king by thuren or the carli better for bump steer?

I have no experience with the Thuren SS. I recently replaced my stock stabilizer with the Carli Low Mount SS. Radio at Carli recommended the high mount with the OEM low mount. This was due to running 35x12.50r18 Toyo RT's. He said they tend to pull right. I did not have an issue with pulling to the right, but felt that I was experiencing a little bump steer at highway speeds. Roads are horrible in Dallas. I decided to install the low mount set at 100PSI based on recommendation from Carli. I believe it ships at 150psi. I am going to add the high mount, although not necessary, and see what happens. I could definitely feel the difference after installing the low mount. Compared to OEM, it is worth the money long term IMO. FYI, I believe both Thuren and Carli both use King shocks for SS.

^^^Agreed with most^^^

The Carli stabilizers are custom built specifically for them and they are made out of stainless steel.

To the OP,
The factory steering linkage setup on the '14+ trucks is far better than the 03-12 trucks so outside of a freak incident like you had I don't have many guys reporting any issues. My personal truck is 2 years old and has had 37" Toyo's on it for quite some time and my linkage is fine. I would just get the linkage replaced with Mopar linkage. Unless we start seeing a ton of failures or premature wear it may be a while before aftermarket companies see a true need to develop something better.

As far as stabilizer goes, the Carli unit is a lot nicer than the factory and most other aftermarket ones. Most guys are just fine with the single Carli low mount unless they are trying to address a hard right pull, Then the High Mount version coupled with a stock lower or Carli Low mount would be the way to go.
