JK Wrangler Game-Changer Suspension 5.5" Bolt-On, Hi-Steer, No Shock Edition
JK Wrangler Game-Changer Suspension 5.5", Hi-Steer, No Shock Edition


 
The JK Wrangler "Bolt-On 5.5" Game Changer Suspension Kit, No Shock Edition is the ONLY BOLT ON SYSTEM that allows for proper control arm geometry at this lift height. Front and Rear geometry correction brackets are only found at MetalCloak allowing you to get the lift height you want without cutting off the factory brackets or other costly modifications.

Get the lift height you want with the ease of a "Bolt-On" solution.

Highlighted system features are:
  • Front and Rear Geometry Correction Brackets
  • High-Misalignment Vibration Dampening Duroflex™ Control Arms
  • Front and Rear Durotrak™ Bushing equipped track bars
  • Rear Coil Alignment Retainers
  • True Dual Rate Coils
  • Hi-Steer Kit
Oh yeah, this system also out performs most long-arm kits in travel, articulation and flex with the smoothest and most predictable ride on or off-road at a fraction of the overall cost and modification.

Note: All 2012+ JK Wrangler will require exhaust spacers (7078) for clearance for the front drive shaft.

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

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

The Performance of a 5.5" system with an easy bolt on solution!

This JK Wrangler Game-Changer 5.5" is a complete system without shocks, it's about choice. Use any shock set-up you choose, if you have a different idea of what shocks will work best for you - go for it. However MetalCloak products are engineered to work as a system, this is the option if you have decided on different shocks other than what we have recommended to be ideal.

Note: MetalCloak engineers have chosen shocks that have the ideal resonance with our coils. We have not tested other shocks on the market as to whether or not they compliment our suspension system or suppress its performance. In other words, choosing another shock could significantly impact your ride quality.

This is our JK Wrangler Game-Changer 5.5" bolt-on suspension system with the new Hi-Steer Kit.

WHAT ARE TRUE DUAL RATE ™ COILS?

MetalCloak JK Wrangler True Dual Rate™ Coils have one of the longest free length in the industry for greater articulation without sacrificing the OEM ride quality.

Without the advantage of the Dual Rate Design, the required Spring Rate would be too low and "squishy" -- just loading your Jeep up with supplies would affect ride height and quality.

REAR COIL SPRING ALIGNMENT & RETAINER...
7187 Exploded View When lifting a Jeep, the pinion angle must be turned upwards to match the new drive-line angle.The changed pinion angle rolls the axle backwards and moves the factory spring plates, that once were horizonta, to an angled plane; this causes coil springs to bow and not seat properly.

Correct the alignment for your rear coils.
  • Easy Installation
  • Corrects Coil Alignment Keeping Coil From Bowing
  • Secures Coil Springs & Ensures Coil Spring Stays Seated
  • 1/4" Thick Steel
  • Gold Zinc Plated Finish
Added safety...

Our system also features an in-coil retainer that attaches the coil spring to the coil bucket keeping you safer when at the extremes of articulation; this security feature also prevents rattling coils.
