IT ALL STARTS WITH THE BUSHINGS
The Patented Duroflex™ Joint (metalcloakpatents.com) is the key to getting the greatest flex in a bolt-on suspension kit. Period.
MetalCloak has taken the best features of the most widely used control arm joints and combined those features to create the Duroflex Joint, producing a Low-Maintenance, High-Misalignment (34˚), Self-Centering, Rebuildable Joint with an OEM quality ride.
Now with Kevlar!
DuPont™ Kevlar® Fiber is now compounded in the proprietary elastomer of the Duroflex Bushing, bringing even more strength, durability and performance.
Kevlar® is a synthetic fiber with extremely high tensile strength to weight ratio…five times stronger than steel and commonly used in bullet proof armor applications.
Duroflex Bushings w/Kevlar® can be identified by the MetalCloak “M” located on the outer surface.
Control Arm Duroflex Joint Alignment…
At MetalCloak we take the care to build every product right.
Most manufacturers build their control arms misaligned from center. Why? It simply costs less to do so.
By not cutting any corners, our joints are Centered and Aligned reducing wear and improving performance.
It makes them easier to install, too!
Threaded Forged Ends
Forged for Strength…
The adjustable threaded sides are Forged that give a 37% higher fatigue strength over inferior cast parts, this EXTRA rock bashing strength will hold up to whatever you throw at em.
What are True Dual Rate Coils?
MetalCloak JL Wrangler True Dual Rate™ Coils have one of the longest free length in the industry for greater articulation without sacrificing the OEM ride quality.
Without the advantage of the Dual Rate Design, the required Spring Rate would be too low and “squishy” — just loading your Jeep up with supplies would affect ride height and quality. (Learn More About True Dual Rate Coils)
Lower Front Coil Isolator Correction Pads
Replace the plastic OE factory coil isolator pads that are problematic and cause coil bow. This polymer Isolator replaces the OEM plastic part and corrects the coil bow that may be caused when using the worn parts. Fits in factory location and is a quick upgrade to fine tune your JL Wrangler & JT Gladiator.
MetalCloak Thermoset Elastomer Coil Isolator upgrade pads are designed to last and outperform factory parts. The pads are made specifically for MetalCloak True Dual Rate Coils and are model specific.
Not just any track bar bushing…meet the Patented Durotrak
The Patented Durotrak ™ Bushing (metalcloakpatents.com) is a NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) bushing made with a proprietary elastomer compound unique to MetalCloak. The Durotrak™ two part bushing is comprised of two pieces that thread together making this bushing simple to install without a press, reduces vibration and harshness transferred to the driver, and improves vehicle steering input.

Solid Chromoly front track bar keeps you… well.. on track
Formed for ultimate Up-Travel & Down-Travel the JL Wrangler Front Track Bar gives unprecedented strength, clearance, and improved ride stability.
JL Wrangler Durotrak rear track bar – A first in Hi-Clearance!
The Solid Chromoly track bar is uniquely designed to clear on up-travel as well as down-travel. No other track bar is designed with up-travel in mind.
Outboard Shock Mount
Engineered to move the lower shock mounts away from the Jeep frame rails increasing clearance for the shock body at the extremes of articulation. Bracket rotates shock eyelet; allows it to swing with the axle vs bind on the limited rubber material (Learn More About Outboard Shock Mount)
IMPORTANT NOTE: If using OE wheels 2″ spacers will be needed to give proper clearance. These mounts are intended for use for wheels with 4.5″ of backspacing or less or an equivalent of a 2″ spacer on factory wheels.
