    What's the big difference? I'm needing a clutch for my crew cab, and I can get the pro gold set for $260, or the repset for $170 at Autozone. It's not a wheeler, just the occasional hauler/tow rig. Do I really need to go for the gold, or would the repset be fine. Anyone know of some better prices than this?

    Hop on the Luk website. I remember reading about the differences there. I can't recall what they were but I know that I was convinced I needed the pro-gold. My favorite clutch of all time!

    Well I already read all I found there. They say a lot, yet without really saying anything. It sounds like they're talking to someone who's never heard of a clutch before. They never come out and say what the REAL differences are. The repset is pretty tempting at $90 cheaper than the pro gold. It's still better than some parts store cheapie.

    Definately better than the parts store special. Maybe it wasn't their site that I found that info. I'll take a look and see what I can find.

    We used to carry LUK but dropped them for some damn reason but I still get LUK from out old supplier b/c I have ALWAYS has good luck with the LUK. I have hte ProGold in my K5 behind my 454. The ProGold has a beefier pressure plate with more clamping load and it has stiffer torsion spring in the disc. I have driven the heck out of my blazer since the day the motor was but in and the clutch feel just as good now as the day I put it in and hasn't slipped once.

    Oh, word to the wise, stay the hell away from Centerforce. REBOXED, OVERPRICED CRAP!

    Yeah, that seems to be the general consensus on Centerforce. I'm just trying to decide if the difference is worth $90 for a truck that won't be driven all that much. The repset will pretty much be OE quality won't it? They always seem to last quite a while from the factory...
