Info on new clutch kit

Last kit i installed i got from advance auto and it came with a fliber/plastic release bearing that lasted about 3,000 miles, i replaced it with a national bearing cast iron one. Now i need a new kit for another jeep. What kit comes with the cast iron release bearing? Does Luk kits?

Thanks for the reply, but they all say oem specs. Advance auto said the same thing.
Looking for someone who has bought a kit that had a cast iron release bearing included

Ive never seen a clutch kit with a plastic throwout bearing. Get LUK, they are great. I put one in many years ago and its still going strong. Also just put a exedy in an eclipse, they work great too.

I second the LUK clutch very solid and low noise clutch and people on this forum have has smoke pooring the the clutch and they are still useing the same clutch and for 200 dollars it is so worth it i have abused the piss out of the clutch and iv had it for 2 weeks and im very happy.. I talked to a co worker that gotma clutch from rock auto for his 4 banger and ax5 and pilot bearing kept seizing on him grandet they kept sending him one fo free.. But defr go for the LUK u wont be dissapointed

The bearing housing looked like fiberglass/plastic/carbon fiber, not steel or iron. The bearing on the end of the housing was. Go to advance auto, auto zone, etc and take a look at them.
