they`re actually made in china, they`re stuck in customs shipping containers.
It's terrible that our North American companies treat us, their bread and butter, in this manner. If these nuts come from China they will be junk anyway. I used to work in a small foundry and we lost some contracts to China. We then began to do quality control on these parts because they cannot tell if the part conforms to specs. Most would be sent back. They produce lots at a cheap price but they have no quality. The dealers don't seem to want to be bothered with this rearend problem. Shame on them. We all have to try to buy as much products that are made in Canada or the U.S.A. if we can find any.
