where to purchase clutch kit

Priced a clutch kit at advanced auto parts for 187.00. Not a LUK. Does it matter? Where should I purchase a clutch kit? The one I priced includes the clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing and plastic shaft.

Re: where to purchase clutch kit

if it is NEW stuff thats a decent price, LUK is just a known quality, not super high end stuff or anything.

I really dont think it matters much, if its a decently made kit, and the flywheel is flat, and its installed correctly, and you dont slip your clutch or drip oil on it, itll last a LONG time

Re: where to purchase clutch kit

dialaclutch.com seems to be a popular place also...prices look reasonable. I bought mine at Advanced Auto 3 years ago and have not had a problem. Think it was Borg and Beck. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: where to purchase clutch kit

Kragen clutch kits come with a lifetime warranty. Even if you wear the disc out, they will replace it.

I am going to try on on my next clutch.

Re: where to purchase clutch kit

did you do any performance mods? If so maybe a more heavy duty clutch is in order. I went with a hayes, but also here good things about center force. Both seem to be about the same price-$225 . I bought mine @ 4wd hardware.com but summit racing also had the same price. Good Luck

If you have the cash get the Center Force. I got a real nice one at NAPA, if I remember right it was about $150.

Re: where to purchase clutch kit

Does the average 4 wheeling actually reach enough RPM's to get the benifits of a center force? not trying to start anything just curious [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: where to purchase clutch kit

the $150 center force is just a good quality clutch ( just like the LUK from what I understand), the Dual friction is the $250 one, and its the one that has more clamping force via the weights, it only works at HI RPM, so not much need for hte dual friction, but the reg centerforce is a good clutch, but basically the same as the rest

Re: where to purchase clutch kit

most clutches come in pieces ie; disc, pressure plate, throw out bearing, and pilot bushing. there are some kits that combine them, but almost none come with the pilot bushing/bearing.and very few include the throw out bearing.I always tend to do a little overkill in the way of heavy duty but that's me. One thing to consider is mwhat a pain the A__ it mis to take the clutch out so make sure you do it right the 1st time. Good Luck
