The MetalCloak TJ/LJ Upper Rear Duroflex Control Arms are precision engineered for all the flex and the smoothest ride.

Equipped with the all new MetalCloak DuroflexTM (Patent-Pending) self-centering composite bushings at both ends for a combined misalignment of over 68 degrees.

All parts are treated with Gold Zinc Chromate for the ultimate in defense against the elements.

Jeep is driven on trails and some beach, but mostly a daily driver. Was going to go with Johnny Joint arms to prep for tummy tuck, but read about these and though I'd give them a try. Daily driving, feels better than stock. Sticks to the trail better climbing over stuff.
Uppers come with metric size grade 8 bolts (I read on forums to use a 15/32 drill bit and it worked great). Lowers reuse stock bolts.
The minimum the rear uppers will adjust is 1/4" over stock length and the lowers will adjust all the way down same as stock no problem. Not sure on maximum length.

I love these arms and the duroflex joints are awesome. Better ride on the street, greater flex off road. The Jeep just seems to ride smoother. Install was very straightforward and the best part is the joint are rebuild able.

This are probably one of the best routes to take if you want to keep a short arm set up. the Duroflex bushings soak up a ton of vibrations and the arms lets you flex like crazy. One of the coolest things about them is as you turn the jeep stays level instead of leaning to one side. You may not thing that matters but once you ride in a jeep with these arms you will understand what I am talking about. Pretty straight forward install. it says you need a 7/16 bit for the rear uppers but that was too small. Half inch worked fine.

Although it shouldn't be, it is amazing how much better and more stable my Jeep drives with the Duroflex bushings as opposed to my old arms. It handles better in everyday driving and the flex is great. Even with the Antirock, my Jeep has much less lean when I turn on the middle setting. I have only had these on for a few weeks but they are one of the best improvements that I have made to my Jeep so far.

BTW, I replaced all 8 arms, not just the upper rears.
