Best replacement clutch slave cylinder

Just got a yj and the Po has gone through 2 in 10k miles. I've been researching and found this to be an issue. I'm not wanting to go external at this time. Just need this thing running ASAP. What slave cylinder should I go with? I have yet to find an answer on who's will actuality last. Advanced auto seems to be at the bottom of the list. Clutch was replaced within the last 10k.

rock auto sells some of the name brands like wagner and delco.

Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.

the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.

Just recently went through two Autozone internal slaves within about 3k miles. The first one blew out on day one. The second one lasted a few months. I replaced with a LUK. So far, so good.

+1 on the LUK set, mine has held up very nicely over the years. Do yourself a favor and convert to '94-'95 slave/master combo. Trust me, if you have to pull the bell housing more than once to change your clutch you are not going to be happy about it.

I would ditch the internal slave and convert to a external slave, you will never have to worry about it again.

I just ordered the gold clutch set.

LUK Part # 01901***PRO GOLD PERFORMANCE**Aisin Transmission; Slave Cylinder included

Hope this cures the clutch. If not I guess I'll move to the line and master. Jeep should be delivered on Sundayor maybe even Monday. Hope Sunday. And hope the slave shows by then too. Thanks for the heads up. I was about to order the Napa junk. I went with the gold just for the hell of it. Wasn't much more and hope it is a little tougher. So my wife won't want to drive it. Lol.

How do you convert to an external slave? Can it be done on an '89? I don't know what transmission I have (BA-10 or AX-15) or even if it matters. Thanks.
Sorry I'm not trying to hijack this thread. I've recently had problems with my clutch and I'm a little desperate for solutions.

Should be an AX-5, and yes you can go external. I completed mine last year. Shoot me a PM and I will send you the links you need and then the mod to the master you won't find anywhere. Works great wheeled for a year so far probably 5K miles mostly off road.

I have a 4.2L i6.. Isn't the AX-5 on the 4 cyl? I could be wrong.

Depends on the build date.
Before March 10th 1989 - BA-10
After March 10th 1989 - AX-15
Check your vin number to be sure. It will have the build date in its code.

Yeah thats the problem. I don't know when it was built. I know according to my VIN, it was built in Brampton, Ontario. Although, unfortunately, I cannot determine what month it was built.

Another thing, I do know for a fact that the vehicle was purchased on 8/13/89. This is after March 10, 1989, obviously, but I don't know for sure it the dealership sold a vehicle with he newer trans (AX-15) or the Peugeot (BA-10).

if you have the original doors there is a tag on the drivers door with the build date.
