Metalcloak JK Rear Coil Alignment Correction

Just something we put together to help JK Owners with the rear coil correction. This simple alignment bracket and coil retainer assists the rear coils to compress without bowing.

I recently installed the 3.5 Game Changer on my 2016 JKU RHR and noticed the bowing of the rear springs while stationary. Is this normal? Wouldn't the bowing effect unevenly weaken the springs. If so, shouldn't this be part of that lift so as to not let the spring prematurely fail/sag?

It actually is very normal. It is what happens when you rotate your axle, which has the spring base on it, but do not rotate the spring base back to it's original location.

For the most part, it is not an issue. Your kit will perform as promised, and the springs will last as designed.

This new kit is for the JK Owner who wants to add a little extra, because he can, and straighten out those coils. It's an option, not a requirement.

I know there are difference in design, materials etc and the retention ability of yours but do they give roughly the same amount of correction as you would get with the RockKrawler wedges? thanks
