US Gear and a TOM'S Gear are the only brand produced in the USA. All the others are off shore products with questionable quality.

I used the Richmond pro gears in this 9", but I've had luck with cheaper brands also. I've used the Jegs brand, Ford Motorsport in a 8.8, Motive as well. None made noise, or ever had any issues.

My guess is the same China factory sells them to Jegs also, although the Summit stuff a lot of it anyway is made by good company's in the USA. Like I said the Jegs gears were fine, wen bottom 10's on them, trans brake, mid 1.4 60' in a street car.
