We use Valeo clutches at work in our trucks.They suck.Are drivers kept ripping the centers out of them.WE have also used LUK.They were better.We then switched to Phoenix Friction.They were great,took lots of abuse.Never ripped the center out of one of them.Buuuuut then.....We got crappy flywheels from them and they said it was the way we were installing them.lol.So he just lost a huge account.Dumb dumb.

Good thread, I am also looking to replace my clutch and PEP Boys has LUK clutches for $129.I think I will stop in and get one this week. But something that was just mentioned makes me wonder. I only feel it slip in 3rd, the RPM's go up and the engine lags.Other gears seem fine, maybe I just don't notice it as much? But it recently started getting cold here and thats when I noticed it. Could it be something other than the clutch?
Just put a LUK in yesterday, mainly because my throw-out was sounding a bit like a pencil sharpener on takeoff after 166k+. No complaints in the first 60 miles with the LUK. Hope to get 200k more out of this one.
Running a LUK behind my stroker!!! Very happy
