This short video covers what you need to know about the basics of the Duroflex Joint. How it should be used and what to expect when using it.

THE TECH

IT ALL STARTS WITH THE BUSHINGS

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

OEM Clevite and Typical Flex Joint is the Duroflex Joint

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!

The MetalCloak Kevlar® bushings can be identified by the M located on the surface.

Together we’re bringing the strength, durability and performance of Kevlar® to new frontiers. Kevlar® aramid fiber is pushing boundaries and defying obstacles every day.
