Upper front Control Arms November 28, 2016
Reviewer: david richards from Baytown , TX United States  
I took the opportunity to upgrade my Jeep with the replacement of Skyjacker lift kit.   The Skyjacker lift was on the Jeep when I purchased it.  The Skyjacker control arm bushings fail about every 6 months and need to be changed.   I have pieced the components of the 3.5" Game changer and look forward to Christmas to replace the lift.

Jeep JK front upper CA's March 2, 2016
Reviewer: Ethan Noel from Saint John, NB Canada  
Out of the box, these things are gorgeous. The zinc coating is excellent, the Duroflex bushing is huge and, if this one is anything like the ones that I've seen abused for years in other people's rigs, I'll be happy. Setup was a piece of cake (as with most) but when I took them out of the box, I noticed that there was one bolt in the bushing end on just one control arm. Thinking I lost one, or that it got forgotten, I emailed Metalcloak to ask if I was missing something. They got back to me very promptly and said that no, you actually reuse all of the stock control arm bolts, but that in their experience, the drivers side, frame side bolt (right beside a cat from the exhaust) has the tendency to corrode and seize worse, causing some of their customers to have to cut the stock one. So they give you one, just in case. That's looking out for the customer!
