Duroflex Joint Revealed

The MetalCloak Duroflex Joint takes the best qualities of OEM style Clevite Joint and the popular Johnny Joint style Flex Joint and combines them.

Vibration Dampening

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.

A Comparison of Flex

Comparing the Flex of the Duroflex Joint with that of the Johnny Joint, the Teraflex Monster and the typical Clevite.

Lock-N-Load

"Typical" Radius Arm systems inherently bind causing premature bushing wear and excessive stress on bracketry. The Lock-N-Load solves that problem.

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.

THE TECH

Lower Front Long Arms

TJ/LJ Lower Front Long Arms

Both the Front Radius Arms and the Lower Rear Hi-Clearance Arms are manufactured for the ultimate in strength and versality.

  • 2" .18 wall DOM
  • Signature Gold Zinc Chromate
  • Oversized Duroflex Joints at the Belly Pan
Made strong and made to last!

Control Arm Duroflex Joint Alignment...

Yes, the Radius Arm is back!

  • Fit ideally in to the limited space under the TJ/LJ Wrangler.
  • Aid to the protection of vital components of the under carriage.
  • Allow maximum up and down wheel travel while keeping the pinion angle in check.
  • Have unparalleled on-road handling characteristics that cannot be denied.
But Radius Arms typically have a major problem... BIND. This bind causes premature bushing wear and undue stresses on the axle.

Lock-N-Load

MetalCloak's Lock-N-Load Radius Arm system removes the most common problem that causes more long term damage to bushings and axles... BIND.

The Lock-N-Load extends at full droop, compressing one spring and extending the other.

At full stuff, the Lock-N-Load compresses. There is always compression and resistence.

Lock-N-Load Compression

IT ALL STARTS WITH THE BUSHINGS

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

Duroflex Control Arm Joint Comparison

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!

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.

The Duroflex Joint Provides The Best Ride. Period.

High Vibration Dampening & Self Centering...

Made of a Proprietary Elastomer Compound, the High Vibration Dampening and Self-Centering characteristics of the Duroflex Joint means you will always get...

  • The best ride quality
  • No binding of your control arms.
  • None of the micro-wear that DESTROYS Flex Joints
