MetalCloak 6Pak

MetalCloak's Floating Shock Body Technology (FST) provides a game-changing platform featuring parallel shafts extending from a floating body, centralized by dual opposing reservoirs; this revolutionary feature allows for twice the usual stoke over typical industry shocks.

Now the problems of low-hanging shocks or limited travel because of your shock body are fully and completely eliminated.

The shock is no longer the limiting factor in your build.

Each 6Pak shock is hand built to exacting standards and then Dyno tested here at MetalCloak in Sacramento California.

Our Next Generation of 6Paks - now with longer travel!

Designed specifically for applications where space is paramount; the 6Pak shock body extends shafts from both sides of a floating remote reservoir and allows for a much smaller compressed shock.

Thanks to the tireless work of our engineers, we've figured out how to make the 6Pak shocks even better... More Travel!

Our original 12" Travel shocks are now 13" Travel and our 14" Travel shocks are now 15" Travel shocks!

You're welcome.

Now Easier to Install!

Our new fixed bushing is precisely positioned to ensure easy install.

Just put the shock in position and bolt in. This eliminates the original method of having to bind the rod ends against each other just to keep it in place.
