For a Dana axle that would be Dana.....for a Yota axle, not in any particular order, it's PRECISION, US GEAR, MOTIVE, and SUPERIOR. The Italian made gears out of Ambrose stuffed in Yukon boxes seem to have the quality also.
For the Yotas....I have noted a QC issue with RICHMOND.....and Genuines are, with no doubt, the garbage gear of the not so choosy.
All that said, the ultimate strength of a ring and pinion install is not so much the ring/pinion itself but the quality of the install. Probably 9 out of 10 gear installs are done wrong. Think about that for a second. :blender:
