It's Your Jeep, Only Better

TJ/LJ Wrangler Duroflex Short Arm Suspension, 3.5", Aluminum

The MetalCloak TJ/LJ Wrangler 3.5" Duroflex™ Aluminum Suspension Kit has everything our Long Travel suspension does, minus the 6Pak Shocks, which you can always add later.

High misalignment, vibration-dampening, Patent Pending Duroflex™ Joint (metalcloakpatents.com), this kit is perfect for the TJ owner who wants the best flex and the best ride quality, but doesn't need the off-roading articulation of the 6Pak Shocks.

Note: MetalCloak Recommends You Have a Suspension Specialist Align Your Jeep Once MetalCloak Suspension is Installed.

Note: MetalCloak does not recommend powder coating your True Dual Rate Coils. See instructions for additional details.
