JK Wrangler 4-Link Long Arm Compound Suspension System, 4.5"/5.5", Rocksport L/T Edition
JK Wrangler 4-Link Long Arm Compound Suspension System, 4.5"/5.5", Rocksport L/T Edition


 
The JK Wrangler 4-Link Long Arm Compound Suspension System, 4.5"/5.5", Rocksport LT Edition
Features value priced Rocksport Long-Travel shocks for the weld-on Long Arm suspension system. The weld-on brackets for the upper front control arms provide the best pinion angle control from full stuff to maximum droop.

MetalCloaks bolt-on DB3 rear set up, allowing optimal rear control arm geometry with the best clearance gives a perfect balance. Pinion angle and wheelbase change is least affected through the range of suspension movement with this suspension. High speed, rock crawl, expedition, or daily driver; for taller lift heights this may be the ultimate system.

Highlighted system features are:
  • Front Weld on Brackets
  • Rear Bolt on DB3
  • High-Misalignment Vibration Dampening Duroflex™ Front Long Arms
  • Front and Rear Durotrak™ Bushing equipped track bars
  • Rear Coil Alignment Retainers
  • True Dual Rate™ Coils
  • Hi-Steer Kit
  • Long Travel (LT) Rocksport Shocks
BTW, 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 with premium performance; this is as good as it gets.

Note: Front and Rear driveshafts required.

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.

WHAT DOES IT DO?

Adding this system improves rear control arm geometry and adjusts rear axle caster for lifted JK Wranglers. The flatter the control arms are the better; the benefits are immediately felt with a smoother ride and stable handling as the roll center has been adjusted. Braking performance also improves maximizing safety along with the comfort and performance of your Jeep JK Wrangler.

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.

  • Corrects Coil Alignment Keeping Coil From Bowing
  • Secures Coil Springs & Ensures Coil Spring Stays Seated
  • 1/4" Thick Steel

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.
