    Alright I know the "what's the best clutch?" question has been covered before but.....

    My pressure plate and/or throw out bearing took a dump on me tonight in the middle of traffic and I need to get it fixed in the next couple of days. I'm getting new pressure plate, bearing, and disk even though the disk was replaced just over a year ago. I don't feel like tearing that heavy trans out again anytime soon. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    What's the best bang for the buck that I can pick up at a local parts store? Autozone, Napa, Pepboys, ABC, Advanced, O'Reilleys are my options.

    Napa sells a Zoom clutch which you can get with a lifetime warranty for $140. I have that in mine.

    Autozone can order you a Luk clutch which everyone raves about.

    I'll have to check into the Napa clutch. I seem to remember seeing good things on here about them... I just don't remember everything that was said and haven't found it in searches yet.

    I can't wait around to order a clutch. I need to have it done before Friday. That's why I'm looking for "in stock" choices.

    I bought the Luk one time and had no luck with it. Maybe it was just a fluke. Don't know. It went out at 6200 miles! Was I a happy camper!? Then went back to centerforce and had no problems. The CF now has over 75,000 miles on it. Pretty good I'd say.

    IIRC, centerforce clutches use a Luk disc.

    Well I picked up one from Napa today... I believe it was around $130. I don't remember what brand it is without looking at the box but I do know that AdvancAuto sells the same one with the same lifetime warranty(but they have to special order) for about 10 bucks less.

    I'm kinda pissed though because when I tracked down a place to have my flywheel resurfaced, it turned out to be a clutch/machine/etc/etc shop. I could have gotten a slightly better one for about the same price with the machine work tossed in for free. Ah well.... teach me to call every place in town next time. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
