Not sure of the brand but I was warned away from a similar solid bearing recently by a driveline shop. They said they are not good for daily driving, noises and transfer a lot vibes to the truck ? I would love to hear more first hand feedback if anyone is running them ?

I understand, but trust me they are forged. You can do more research if you don't believe me. That's the entire reason the weld on gussets work so well.

Sure looks like they are cast to me, but I've been wrong before. Today even.

Your driveline shop is right. I've had one for 50K miles or so without issue, but if you are a "princess and the pea" kind of person that has heart palpitations over tiny vibrations it is not for you. My truck has solid motor and trans mounts, heimed uppers, double beadlocks, etc so a minor vibe is not even noticed.
