Great product/update instructions May 17, 2014
Reviewer: CBM from OK United States  
I looked on the internet for hours comparing front lower control arms. What sold me on Metal Cloak was the way the arm is made. In the side by side comparison you can see the difference. Other arms are not made like the factory angles. Which in my opinion would make the joint wear out faster. Sure the others are rebuild-able but why would you want something that is not at the correct angle? The instructions need to be updated or I would have gave you 5 stars. You might have to pay a little more for this product/shipping but Metal Cloak is worth the money. Last but not least, you get a phone call to thank you for purchasing their product. When I go to purchase more suspension parts I will buy Metal Cloak.

Great quality May 12, 2014
Reviewer: Patrick LaCuesta from Tucson, AZ United States  
Not only are they much beefier than the stock arms, but they were super easy to install too. Don't forget to torque them down!

I'm hooked.... :) January 30, 2014
Reviewer: islandermyk from Aurora, CO United States  
This is probably one of the best investments I've made for my JK Unlimited. I'm a beginner in this field of motorsports, and I can tell you that after installing these arms I can legitimately tell the difference between the stocks and this product. I haven't taken it off road yet, but I'm pretty sure they'll work great which is the reason why I'm saving up more $$$$ to complete my JK with Metalcloak's control arms!  Another thing I'd like to mention... Metalcloak's customer service is far better than most that I've dealt with so far. Looking forward to doing more business with you and Thank you guys for everything!

Great product October 2, 2013
Reviewer: Joseph Heyob from Franklin, OH United States  
Over all a great and solid product.  The manufacturing appears excellent and the fit was perfect. They run as smooth if not smoother than OEM arms.  Have not had the chance to use them on the trail yet, but I foresee only great performance from them.

Cons none
