Control Arm Duroflex Joint Alignment...

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!

Huge improvement May 6, 2016
Reviewer: Taylor Craig from Katy, TX United States  
When i added the lower control arms with my existing metal cloak uppers, i noticed a huge improvement in ride quality and handeling. If anyone is thinking about buying a lift make sure to get both uppers and lowers at the same time! They are also beefy as heck, i cant see them being bent or damaged anytime soon. Thanks metalcloak!

Buying a lift? Get the lower arms also! March 26, 2016
Reviewer: Culley Morrow from Palmer, AK United States  
I bought the True Dual Rate Kit and the lower control arms don't come with it. Why the heck not?

The uppers are great, the kit is great, the lower control arms complete it. Without the lowers, the uppers are not adjustable enough to get correct caster. I added the lowers with the lengths MC has in the instructions and it's amazing. The ride is better and steering went from mushy to tight.

If you are getting an MC lift I can't recommend the lower control arms enough.

Front end improvement March 2, 2016
Reviewer: Steve Teske from Gilbert, AZ United States  
This improved my front end steering and ride. I have the MC 3.5" lift but didn't get the lower front control arms due to funds. Installed the lower front control arms and it improved my steering and ride. Now it is way better than stocks. I'm not a mechanic an I installed these myself with ease.
