JK Wrangler Game-Changer Suspension 4.5", Hi-Steer, ARB Edition
JK Wrangler Game-Changer Suspension 4.5", Hi-Steer, ARB Edition


 
The MetalCloak JK Wrangler 4.5" Game-Changer Hi Steer Suspension ARB Edition, has all the components of the Game Changer, including the high-misalignment vibration-dampening Duroflex Control Arms and includes the Hi-Steer Kit too!

True Dual Rate™ Coils that provide a more comfortable ride than traditional single rate lift springs and feature better load handling stability than typical "progressive" or "multi-rate" coils.

This is not an entry-level kit; this is a complete 4.5" suspension system that gives unprecedented ride quality at a more affordable price than our Game Changer 6Pak Edition. The system includes 2 patented technologies; the Duroflex™ and Durotrak™ bushings for the best (NVH) vibration handling available for the smoothest ride.

It's all about choice. The (OME) Old Man Emu Nitrocharger Sport Long Travel Shock Edition as another great option to be used with our Game-Changing Suspension product line. This system is for the JK owner who wants the superior flex with great ride quality, but doesn't need the unprecedented off-roading articulation and pre-running capability of the 6Pak Shocks.

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

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

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

WHAT'S IN THE KIT?

A LEGENDARY SHOCK FROM A LEGENDARY COMPANY.

Old Man Emu's proven line of Long Travel shock absorbers includes some of the latest shock valving technology achieving a whole new level of ride quality.

Most dual and monotube shocks typically feature a two-stage valving process, the new OME Nitrocharger Sport Long Travel Edition features a triple-stage valving process rivaled only by a remote canister adjustable shock.

These have been stacked into the most durable shock body and adjusted by load capacity for you. And the additional travel makes it one of the few shocks that can take on the flex Metalcloak offers.

Fitting with our soft shock, stiff coil, philosophy, the off-the-shelf valving of the OME shocks have the perfect synergy with our True Dual Rate Coils.

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.

The Durotraktwo part bushing is comprised of two pieces that thread together making this bushing simple to install without a press, reduces vibration and harshness transferred to the driver, and improves vehicle steering input.

Anti Flop

This specially designed rod end has been engineered just for the JK Wrangler steering.

Full side to side range of motion ensures bind free steering when pushing the extremes of your Jeeps travel and articulation, while a limited "front to back" range of movement is built into the rod-end and eliminates the possibility of the offset to allow the tie-rod to "flop".
