Metalcloak dog-legged rod ends control tie rod flop providing better performance. Ends are sealed with grease boots to keep debris out and lubrication in. The adjustable tie rod can be adjusted while installed on the vehicle for fine tuning.

Anti Flop Feature

Anti Flop Feature
This specially designed rod end has been engineered just for the JL Wrangler steering.

Full side to side range of motion ensures bind free steering when pushing the extremes of your Jeeps travel and articulation, while a limited "front to back" range of movement is built into the rod-end and eliminates the possibility of the offset to allow the tie-rod to "flop".
