Default High Quality Dana 30 Gear Sets For Road Racing

Looking to find the highest-quality Dana 30 4:56 gear set for an 1800E/140 series rear axle that is availble today. Have checked out what is offered in the general market place, but it seems only average quality gear sets are available. Anyone have knowledge of a company that manufactures a product that stands above all the rest and holds up to the harsh reality of road racing.

I'd personally go with a Yukon or USA Gear set, and then have it REM treated (or some other super-finishing).

I have installed many gear sets from Yukon for customers, found their product very good.

Once again, I agree. Richmond is a quality product.
