any gear except Richmond or Motive ?

After 3 weeks I shredded a 4.33 richmond gear.Def low quality parts.They were installed using the proper procedure and broken it with the propper heat cycles.....just JUNK !
Does anybody know of an alternate brand without issues ? I see alot of others who had the same issue,I just love the feel of the gear night & day diff

Lingenfelter 3.91 (made by AAM). Haven't heard of anyone shredding those yet, but they only make 3.70's and 3.91's. U.S. Gear also just came out with some 4.10's, but they are very new, and only heard one feedback so far, but it was very positive. Let me see if i can find the thread....

Edit: Here's the thread I was talking about.... http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=210502

I have the AAM (LPE) 3.70 gears in my auto and absolutely no problems so far. I love them.

A heavy car, high horsepower and slicks is always gonna be a parts breaker. Unless, you spend big money on bullet proof parts.
