Clutch master and slave

Looking to purchase a new master and slave for the second time in 6 months. First slave cylinder came from discount auto parts. Does anyone know of a better quality slave and master I can purchase. Thank you

First thing I learned as a newbie not so far off in the past was to fill out my profile so ppl would know what rig I have in order to give me advice without having to answer my questions with questions. Ok now thats out of the way,lol.
What year and engine?
Also there is a search tab just above where the list of threads is and you can type your title in there and it will bring up several posts on the issue with alot of answers( found this out the same way you are) .
Go to they have great prices on their kits.
Try to never use after market mc/sc on the jeep. They almost never last over 6mo to a year. Found this out thru several members.
Hope this helps you.

I went through 3 cluch masters in a year. As it turns out it was because they were milled from aluminum. One of the internal ports would constantly rip a seal inside not allowing it to build pressure. The fix? Buy one from a different company. Pepboys was the only place locally that had a factory style one that made enitirely of plastic. The plastic one was in for years with not a single problem.

My reccomendation, is get a master that is plastic. They were like that from the factory, and now I know the reason why. The one from pepboys was made by Raybestos. Avoid the aluminum ones from advance auto parts, and anyone else that sells the aluminum ones. The mexicans that mill them, don't chamfer the holes, thus alowing the seals to rip.

If it has tracks, tires or tits, its gonna cause a problem.
