I've heard in the past that Dana made frame rails for Mack but I don't know if that is true. I think there are a few different vendors that manufacture the frames currently, or that made them for the CV chassis. Some of the CV chassis had an incorrectly cut relief area, others didn't, and the fix for the frame rails was dependent upon the manufacturer, at least as I understood it.
Back in the 50's and 60's I believe Mack frames were made by a company called parrish. Who made them after that and who makes them now. Also who made the L B H G and R cabs. I believe mayflower makes the CH. Not really important in the grand scheme of things but one of those nice to know historical things.

That was my understanding also.
I heard from a reliable source today that the frame rails are made by Metalsa. Their website is http://www.metalsa.com.mx.. The following link is to a brief synopsis on the company and their relationship with Dana: http://www.prnewswir...s-86977692.html
Going through life knowing considerably more about nothing than the next person.
