Crown U-Joint Manufacturer

Post by northcoastsailor » Wed Oct 09, 2019 6:23 pm

Does anyone have any idea who the manufacturer of the Crown U-Joints are? They are labelled made in USA.

Pretty sure Crown Automotive makes them. They also make the repro leaf springs that every dealer sells at varying prices.
