True Bearing Surface...

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

  • Maximum Rotation & Articulation
  • No "Binding Up" of the Control Arms

Low Maintenance & Rebuildable...

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

But, when you do need to rebuild it, it is MetalCloak Easy!

Just pull out the Duroflex Bushing, clean it up, add some new Teflon impregnated, synthetic silicone grease. Reassemble.

Done.

Xj upper control arms August 23, 2018
Reviewer: Shawn from Cumming, GA United States  
Beautiful performance on the street. Haven’t had them off road yet. I’m running run lowers and will switch to metal cloak when the hiem joints are worn out. The hiems are super heavy and need constant cleaning. The metal cloaks are very light weight and no painting needed. But like I say I haven’t tested them yet. Customer service was excellent and kept me posted. Delivery time was on point. I don’t run any stickers on my Jeep,but I’m really surprised they don’t send stickers. So I would suggest sending stickers because I know some people will freak out.

The upper arms look great, very well made product, have not tested them yet. The only negative comment, the shipping cost was a lot more than expected.

control arms August 4, 2017
Reviewer: david martin from Ogden, UT United States  
I installed the upper and lower control arms on my 98 Jeep Cherokee with a 6-1/2 lift. A competitors control arm bushings have been rebuilt 3 times in one year. So far so good. I wheel aggressively in Moab every other weekend.
