Front Duroflex Weld-On Bracket and Axle Bushing Kit, JK
JK  Front Duroflex Axle Bushing Kit


 
MetalCloak's Duroflex bushings are designed to work in parallel, but what about the axle side?

Factory Clevite bushings will work in conjunction with Duroflex bushings. Factory Clevites are a self centering rubber bushing, however, they have a very limited range of performance.

To optimize the Duroflex joints in your MetalCloak control arms and fully benefit with:
  • Increased handling of NVH (noise/vibration/harshness)
  • Articulation (34 degrees)
  • Rotation (360 degrees)
Upgrade the Clevites to Duroflex Axle-Side Bushings! With this weld on system you will upgrade your bushings along with strengthening the weak stock tower-housing with the New MetalCloak Front Duroflex Weld-On Bracket and Axle Bushing Kit!

MetalCloak's Front Duroflex Weld-On Bracket and Axle Bushing Kit ONLY works with MetalCloak's Duroflex Control Arms.

The Front Duroflex Weld-On Axle Bushing Kit comes complete with a press-in Duroflex bushing for the cast side and a reinforced weld-on bracket to contain the Duroflex Bushing on the other side.

Note: MetalCloak's Front Duroflex Weld-On Bracket and Axle Bushing Kit ONLY works with MetalCloak's Duroflex Control Arms. MetalCloak's Front Duroflex Weld-On Bracket and Axle Bushing Kit is not recommended for any other control arms.

The outer surface of the Duroflex Bushing acts as a bearing, breaking free when called for, giving you...

Low Maintenance & Rebuildable...

Unlike typical Flex Joints, the Duroflex does not require replacing key parts every year like others...

Homework paid off again! (Research) May 29, 2016
Reviewer: Jason Hammonds from Newark, TX United States  
This kit is high quality. Diff side is easy to install. The bracket on the axle side takes more time but is exceptionally strong and well worth the effort.
Between the amount of self centering - flex, twist and forward and rearward movement this was the perfect complement to the rest of the radius long arm that binds up the factory joints to the point of distraction during maximum flex. (I still drop one upper radius arm on pass side when flexing off road)
The cost and ease of replacing the flex bushings is a fantastic design and one of my conciderations on selecting this kit.
Without a doubt will be recommended to others!

Great Product March 2, 2016
Reviewer: Josh Mullard from Caledonia, MI United States  
I picked the bushing kit up to compliment my Metalcloak Upper control arms. My oem bushings were bad and these bushings made a great addition.

Top Quality! January 29, 2016
Reviewer: Charles Ryan II from Robinson, TX United States  
I bought this so that I could rebuild rather than replace. Although I didn't use the stiffener bracket as I had already had my axle trussed with and Artec system it worked out perfectly.

Great Product December 16, 2015
Reviewer: Brian Lucero from Katy, TX United States  
Had these installed at the same time as my front truss. The installed was very impressed with the design and ease of installation. Combined with MetalCloak's control arms, my shocks (for 4 to 6 inches of lift) are now my front suspension's limiting factor (with 2.5" springs!)

So much better December 7, 2015
Reviewer: Steven Blanchies from Newark, DE United States  
My stock bushing were worn out. These are a great addition to the control arms. Took longer to do the passengers side then the drivers side.
