JK Wrangler Lock-N-Load Long Arm Compound Suspension, 4.5"/5.5", 6Pak Edition
Metalcloak's JK Wrangler Lock N Load Long Arm Suspension System


 
The JK Wrangler Lock-N-Load Long Arm Compound Suspension, 6Pak Edition is the first Long Arm system that provides a bind-free front radius arm set up and takes advantage of the outstanding rear control arm geometry proven by the Patent Pending DB3 Rear Geometry correction brackets.

Our Patented Lock-N-Load™ Radius Long Arm eliminates bushing bind and is strategically matched to our exclusive DB3™ drop brackets. Combined with True Dual Rate™ Coils, Durotrak™ Track Bars, the revolutionary Duroflex™ Joint, and 6Pak™ shocks with the longest bolt on free-length shocks available; you have a system that is unprecedented in the off road industry.

Highlighted system features are:
  • Front Lock-N-Load™ Radius Long Arm
  • DB3™ 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
  • HD Hi-Steer Kit
  • 6-Pak™ 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 at a fraction of the overall modification at a great value.

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.

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

REAR CONTROL ARM CORRECTION BRACKET "DB3"

This short video covers what you need to know about the basics of The DB3 Bolt-On Rear Drop Bracket. The "DB3" re-positions the rear control arms to operate within a corrected radius. This system drastically reduces bump-steer on lifted Jeeps and provides the best control arm geometry available, period. This is only available from MetalCloak.

Rear Control Arm Drop Bracket on Jeep

Why the DB3 is not your Typical Long Arm...

MetalCloak's "DB3" Rear Control Arm Correction Kit (Patent Pending) is the only solution to lift a Jeep JK Wrangler over 4.5 inches without cutting off the factory brackets and other costly modifications. This product corrects the geometry of the control arms to enable the full use of up and down travel.

The entire bracket assembly is welded together for incredible strength, has built in approach skids, and all surfaces are angled to keep from catching on obsticles. Installs into factory locations that bolt it securely in place.

Typical Rear Long Arms historically have to deal with frame interference and other problems that the DB3 avoids. Period.

Dividing Line

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.

Dividing Line

Typical Rear Long Arm Vs DB3 Drop Bracket - At Ride Hieght

The DB3 provides better control arm geometry than a any rear long arm available and is tucked close to the rear tire to give you an advantage in approach angle over rear long arm set ups.

WHY 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.
