What Clutch to Buy?

Within a month I am going to replace my broken but still running 5spd getrag w/153K miles on it with an AC Delco reman.

Now I want to replace the clutch too, so I was looking at Centerforce dual friction clutches. Are they some of the best? The cheapest Ive found it for is $269 plus shipping from www.gofastparts.com 4wheel parts wholesalers has it for $303. BTW my Centerforce p/n is DF024909. Is that a good price for that clutch. Also does anyone know where I could buy an aftermarket shifter for my truck? Ive looked @ B&M's site and it doesnt appear that they make one for me.

BTW Ive been a long time lurker and have learned a lot. This is only my 2nd post, but hopefully when I get more knowledgeable I'll be able to post more input.

Thanks

Shane

Re: What Clutch to Buy?

I'd do the Center Force Dual Friction clutch. I love the one installed in my Blazer. It really grabs but you can still feather it. Thats about the right price. Keep shopping around. I think Jegs had the best price when I got mine. You might also check Summit Racing.

I don't think they make a shifter for your tranny but I could be wrong.

You can not go wrong with the centerforce. That is all we use as a replacement clutch with the fire department. They hold up well to some of the worst abuse immaginable.

I really like the 12" LUK clutch in my truck. I only have about 1000 miles on it so far, but it's by far the best clutch I've ever put in.

Re: What Clutch to Buy?

I have the Centerforce in my truck and I love it. I can't comment on the price because I bought it ten years ago and my buddy worked at the speed shop and got it for me at cost.

The trouble with being on top...You always have to look over your shoulder. The best never rest. Fear the FORD thunder!!!

CenterForce Dual Friction. Leon Rosser Jeep.

If it don't fit force it, and if all else fails get a bigger hammer!
