The MetalCloak Game Changing Duroflex™ Joints are the only vulcanized elastomer, self-centering joint enhanced with DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber – providing incredible durability with more misalignment in the control arms and better vibration dampening than anything else available. Exclusive to MetalCloak (see detailed info in the main body).
True Dual Rate™ Coils provides the most comfortable and stable ride over traditional single rate lift springs, and provide better load handling than the typical "progressive/multi-rate" coils. Our True Dual Rate coils are extra long in free-length to maintain contact for extreme articulation. MetalCloak has over a decade of proven dual-rate coil performance.
The Durotrak bushings reduce NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) that can be transferred to the driver and provides a smoother ride while also improving the vehicles steering input. The patented bushing is a 2-part design that can rotate 360 degrees in a vertical plane unhindered while minimizing horizontal forces to keep the Jeeps axle centered and you going in the right direction.
The MetalCloak JK Wrangler Hi-Steer kit provides a new drag-link that is placed on top of the steering knuckle and comes with a relocation bracket that raises the track bar to eliminate bump steer in your JK that is lifted over 4.5 inches.
The HD Control Arm Pro'lignment Kit improves front control arm geometry by flattening the resting angle of the control arms on lifted applications. The corrected radius drastically reduces the feel of bump-steer/axle steer providing a smoother ride and superior braking performance with less front end dive. The “bolt on” 7ga steel brackets are fully welded for strength and are finished with gold zinc for long lasting corrosion protection.
The DB3 Rear Control Arm Correction Kit is the only solution to lift a Jeep JK Wrangler over 4.5 inches without cutting off the factory brackets and other costly modifications and maintain great performance. This product adjusts the roll center of your Jeep, and corrects the geometry of the control arms enabling the full use of up and down travel. The entire bracket assembly is welded together for incredible strength, has built in approach skids, and all surfaces are angled to keep from catching on obstacles. Installs into factory locations - bolting securely in place and is finished with gold zinc for long lasting corrosion protection.
Rear Coil Alignment Retainers correctt the angle for the rear coils to better match the upper coil bucket location and allows a truer inline path keeping your long travel coils from bowing. Along with the alignment correction, this kit also keeps the rear coils secure with a coil retainer that bolts on and ensures that the coil stays seated in the lower bucket.
We offer a choice in shocks; run the shock set-up you choose to fit your build needs. If you have a different idea of what shocks will work best for you- go for it. MetalCloak suspensions ARE designed to optimally be used with the patented MetalCloak 6Pak™ Shocks for maximum up and down travel. Our RockSport Shocks (Exclusively at MetalCloak) provide the next longest travel you can get with the simplicity of a standard shock and share the same valving as 6Paks; this is a great option if looking for a no-maintenance option at a great price. The choice is yours to buy the suspension with or without shocks; we recommend our specifically tuned shocks but we leave the choice up to you.
Adjustable height front and rear bump stops are a MetalCloak first and allow you to adjust the travel to be tailored to the size of tire you have optioned for. Add more bump stop or remove to adjust to the clearance you need without having to remove the coils.
All MetalCloak suspension components, are designed for maximum up AND down travel while providing the best suspension geometry available to deliver the performance you demand.
MetalCloak “components” have been proven safe with the FMVSS certificate of safety configured with 37inch tires, full body armor and suspension lift.
