I'm runnin moser shafts front and rear. they build'em to your specs with good customer sevice and quick turn around time. I read an artical about superior not to long ago in a mag.it had great info on their foundry and history as a company . what a bummer if they moved things oversea's

I believe the ones made in India are the Yukon brand (along with a few others), the Superiors should still be made by Foote Foundries in the usa. Hence the cost.

yup, superior has different levels of "alloy" shafts. the most expensive ones are made in the states. another axle company to consider is alloy usa.

Good timing. I just pulled my front shafts and noticed the caps were a touch loose and I had one cracked cap. I went online and priced out shafts and joints. :scared: over 1100 bucks&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33; 3 years on the same joints aint too bad I guess&#33; But I need some new shafts eventually.

Who sells Alloy USA?

I&#39;m not sure if it is or not....

Alloy and Superior are not linked in any way other than I believe Ron (Alloy) used to work at Superior....
