Never heard of Yukon. I checked out their website. Not too shabby. Wish I had heard of them earlier. My biggest mistake was trying to go cheap and save a few bucks. Won't make that mistake again.
Yukon gears are the only gear company we trust in alcohol funny cars... if that tells you how quality they are.

Pay a bit more and feel more reassured the first time. I had the guys at the first shop tell me that my gear housing was warped. If it was warped when you put the gears in, why didn't you stop and tell me at that point? Needless to say, it isn't warped and I now have zero whine. It cost $700 p&l, but it was worth it not to hear the whine anymore. Don't fear the gears, just the guy putting them in, IMO.
If you paid them with a credit card - protest the charge with the cc company. I use my AMEX card for everything I possibly can because you can file a protest online, they instantly credit your account while they research it. I have protested a dozen or so things and have never lost - goods and services...
