This improved performance will assist in the overall ride and control of your Jeep.
The optional billet mount is a two piece aluminum design, is simple to install, and allows you to position the stabilizer for maximum performance. Finished in anodized black with a laser engraved "M" around the recessed bolt holes for a clean and custom look.
Note: Minimum 2" lift required.
Note: Will not fit on JT Gladiator with factory wheel backspacing.
Note: The RockSport steering stabilizer kit works with Left Hand Drive applications only.
Note: Raised steering stabilizer requires at least 2” of bump stop to clear frame.
Note: If purchasing the billet tie rod mount MetalCloak highly recommends using anti-seize on all bolts.

Why Gold Zinc?
It's time for The MetalCloak Minute... where we answer frequently asked questions in about a minute. Today's topic: Gold Zinc
What is Corner Travel Index?
Since 2014 MetalCloak has tested thousands and thousands of rigs at events all across the county collecting specs on the build and cataloging the results. The data collected allows us to make our own products better.
FMVSS 126 Compliant
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.
Chromoly Steel For Added Strength
Making a Tie Rod is easy, but we don't do easy; we chose Normalized 4130 Chromoly 1.625”OD .375” wall tube that can take a beating without breaking (97,200 pound per square inch).
Dog Leg Tie Rod Ends
Boot Sealed - Keeps grease in and dirt out
Anti Flop Feature - Precision range of movement
Massive 1-Ton Rod Ends - Provides additional strength
Maximum Tire/Wheel Clearance - Correct steering radius
Over-sized 1 inch threads- More material at critical area
Over-Sized, Forged, & Heat Treated Housing - Exclusive
Anti Flop Feature
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".
