    Last time I checked, one or the other was reasonable to buy new/remanufactured, the other was insanely expensive when I checked.

    Ask NAPA or someone like that, if there are even rebuild kits for both available. You'll need to hone the cylinder(s) to do it right.

    Either rebuild both and or replace both at the same time and bleed out all the crappy fluid. No matter how bad it is or how expensive it is be glad you don't have a Ford Ranger. Their slave cylinder is in the bell housing, you have to pull the trans to replace it. what a stupid design. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
