Precision hasn't made a joint in YEARS.... is it possible to have a old precision from some slow store that has a non popular joint NOS on their shelf, yes it is however possible.
Precision along with, woods, napa, autozone, moog, neapco, sierra, usa alloy, bickle, advance, pep boys, duralast and lakewood and EVERYONE aside from the 4 listed below ARE ALL using 1 of the 3 china companies
THE ONLY 2 US companies making joints are Spicer and Rockwell/Merritor, there are 2 more, but i wouldn't call specialized companies like longfield and ctm since they are really only doing like 3 particular series
Your driveline shop not telling you to send them duralasts back and use spicer or R/M says volumes.........
Remember something, selling that crap napa is selling i can buy at $2 a piece and you bought them for probably $15 $20...
So the presicion and all the rest listed i can buy at dollar store prices, but i choose to sell a joint that makes me cents...
Think about why someone would do that, cast off the $18 profit per joint for a $1 or $3, you see autozone, napa aren't doing that neither are the others.
Everything in napa is china, except the oil and cleaning products
