    Default Clutch Help

    Ok so I am in the middle of my tear down and figure I should go ahead and put a new clutch in her while it's out. So any suggestions on what one to go with? Thanks for any and all help.

    X2 on Lūk, however most aftermarket clutch kits are Lūk reboxed. Open the box and see if the name is stamped on the pressure plate.

    dont get a centerforce, the throw out bearing will be garbage in 6 months of regular use. i had a dual friction and it was ok but for the $600 price tag there are better options out there. luk's are bad, most any truck shop can build you a clutch with the plate pressure that you want and the clutch plate material that you want.

    im currently running a kevlar ceramic clutch in the xj and with the abuse ive given it im very impressed with the build. a local shop in san diego made i t for me.

    Centerforce is a good clutch, I have one in my Jeep (got it at a really cheap price). However, I wouldn't buy one again for this application. The main advantage of the CF is the increased clamping pressure........but it only increases at high rpm. In most Jeep applications, we're running at low rpms, so no real advantage there. You'd likely get a longer service life from one of the Luk kits, like a NAPA Gold. It will also be cheaper than the CF.
