True Dual Rate™ Coils provides the most comfortable and stable ride over traditional single rate lift springs and provide better load handling than the typical "progressive/multi-rate" coils. Our True Dual Rate coils are extra-long in free-length to maintain contact for extreme articulation. MetalCloak has over a decade of proven dual-rate coil performance.
Adjustable height front and rear bump stops are a MetalCloak first and allow you to adjust the travel to be tailored to the size of tire you have optioned for. Add more bump stop or remove to adjust to the clearance you need without having to remove the coils.
This is an entry-level kit comprised of top level parts -- a 2.5" lift kit, that gives you added clearance for larger tires, unprecedented ride quality, at an affordable price, and allows you to build upon the kit if you ever desire to improve off-road performance with Game Changer components.
MetalCloak patented components have been proven safe with the FMVSS certificate of safety; test done while configured with 37inch tires, full body armor and suspension lift.
Note: All 2012+ JK Wrangler will require exhaust spacers (7078) for clearance for the front drive shaft.
Note: MetalCloak recommends you have a suspension specialist align your Jeep once MetalCloak suspension is installed.

IT ALL STARTS WITH THE BUSHINGS
The Patented Duroflex™ Joint (metalcloakpatents.com) is the key to getting the greatest flex in a JK Wrangler 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 JK 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)
