Mounting at the crossmember, this splits the force loads from just the Jeep frame and gets assistance from the strength of the crossmember.
Mounting the Brace on the opposing side from the steering box keeps the box from being pulled away from the frame and relieves stresses from the steering box bolts and alleviates unwanted stress on the frame.
The high-load oil embedded bronze bushing provides no wear points on its' surface and gives 100% contact without the issues found with inferior braces using needle bearings. The bronze bushing provides a higher load rating than the comparable needle bearings (3500lbs vs 3100lbs dynamic radial load), is completely service free and will provide long lasting performance.
The brace is plated with our signature gold zinc chromate for a long lasting finish and is made here in the USA.
Note: We recommend you have a suspension specialist align your Jeep once a MetalCloak suspension is installed.
