  • Increased Handling of NVH (noise/vibration/harshness)
  • Articulation (34 degrees)
  • Rotation (360 degrees)
  • Solid Steel Billet Tower Insert

IT ALL STARTS WITH THE BUSHINGS

The Patented Duroflex™ Joint ( metalcloakpatents.com) is the key to getting the greatest flex in a Jeep Wrangler bolt-on suspension kit. Period.

Duroflex Control Arm Joint Comparison

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.

Duroflex Kevlar Bushing

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.

The Duroflex Joint Provides The Best Ride. Period.
