Omix-Ada Dana 30 CV Axle Shaft.

So I was looking at CV shafts and ran across 2 different brands that really stuck out. Crown and Omix-Ada.
My passenger side is cracklin and poppin. Are these quality shafts? Am I gonna worry about breaking either one of these when I stuff 33's and lock my front axle up in the future?
Cant be any worse than Duralast brand, right?

They are medium-to-low range chinese made aftermarkets. They're OK at best, for quality stuff and anything above stock level gotta look for some better stuff, at least made in Mexico or something.

Many Crown replacement parts are identical to OEM parts.

Having said that, alloys are the only way to go if you are wheeling a D30.

I've heard good things about omix ada, I run there bushings in my front lower CAs. Omix ada is pretty much a jeep only brand, so I'd say go with them. I've used their parts on my jeep and they seam fine

For the price they were going at...$155.00/shaft, you would think it would be a quality shaft. I mean compared to a $65-70 Duralast shaft

How much do you charge for the crowns?
Can you get your hands on a Flowmaster 40 for my 5.2?
