The MetalCloak Duroflex Joint takes the best qualities of OEM style Clevite Joint and the popular Johnny Joint style Flex Joint and combines them.
We tested our Duroflex Joint using a "Shaker Table" and seismometer app to show how much Vibration Dampening the Duroflex Joint gives you compared to other industry leading joints.
Comparing the Flex of the Duroflex Joint with that of the Johnny Joint, the Teraflex Monster and the typical Clevite.
This short video covers all you need to know about the basics of how typical Coil Springs work compared to MetalCloak's True Dual Rate Coils.
Eliminate squeaks and clunks in your steering with the technology of MetalCloak’s Durotrak™ bushings; exclusively found in MetalCloak track bars.
Enjoy the confident handling and the smooth, comfortable ride you demand from your JK Wrangler with the DB3.
Move the front lower shock mounts away from the Jeep frame rails and rotate the shock eyelet from factory position by 90 degrees allowing it to swing with the axle vs bind on the bushing.
MetalCloak not only has the best off road flex, but we are also Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 126 certified and compliant. No other company can match our on- and off-road performance.
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.
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.
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!
The Lower Front Control Arms are precision engineered for our 4-link front suspension. Mounted using a bolt-on bracket, the control arms are designed for lift heights of 4.5 and up, provide amazing flex, the best pinion angle control for taller lifts, and still give incredible handling and the smoothest ride on or off road.
The Upper Front Control Arms are installed using a welded-on bracket for precise geometry.
Equipped with the Duroflex™ joints at the frame-end, the arms use the stock bushings or the MetaCloak Bushing Upgrade kit (not included) at the axle end.
MetalCloak's Duroflex Joint provides 28˚ more articulation and flex than typical control arms! (Learn More About Duroflex Control Arms)
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)
The Patented Durotrak ™ Bushing (metalcloakpatents.com) is a NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) bushing made with a proprietary elastomer compound unique to MetalCloak. The Durotrak™ two part bushing is comprised of two pieces that thread together making this bushing simple to install without a press, reduces vibration and harshness transferred to the driver, and improves vehicle steering input.

Formed for ultimate Up-Travel & Down-Travel the JK Wrangler Front Track Bar gives unprecedented strength, clearance, and improved ride stability.
The Solid Chromoly track bar is uniquely designed to clear on up-travel as well as downtravel. No other track bar is designed with up-travel in mind.
The rear relocation and clearance track bar bracket provides what it takes to allow the track bar to keep your axle centered properly under your Jeep.
MetalCloak's Patent Pending "DB3" Rear Control Arm Correction Kit is the only solution to lift a Jeep JK Wrangler over 3.5 inches without cutting off the factory brackets and other costly modifications. This product corrects the geometry of the control arms to enable the full use of up and down travel.
Adding this system improves rear control arm geometry and adjusts rear axle caster for lifted JK Wranglers. The flatter the control arms are the better; the benefits are immediately felt with a smoother ride and stable handling as the roll center has been adjusted. Braking performance also improves maximizing safety along with the comfort and performance of your Jeep JK Wrangler.
The DB3 provides better control arm geometry than a any rear long arm available and is tucked close to the rear tire to give you an advantage in approach angle over rear long arm set ups.
When articulated, rear long arms can drag and catch on obstacles that can get you stuck; eliminate this problem with the DB3 and get even better control arm geometry.
High misalignment rod ends, double adjustable, 1.375 OD, .375 wall DOM, and clears aftermarket diff covers. (Learn More About Hi Steer Kit)
