I bought one from ClutchCity on ebay for my old 2.5 and it lasted many years. Exedy is good brand. I'd buy it.

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

local autozone here in VT... the price is 159 without shipping costs...

might be just as good to buy it that way and get some type of warranty as well

the clutch from autozone does come with the slave cyl. (if you buy the slave separate.. without the clutch.. its more then the clutch with the slave... I know makes no sense at all.. but anyway)

Another thing to have on hand is a pair of bolts the size of the bellhousing to engine bolts but 5 or 6 inches long. Cut the heads off and bevel the cut edge on a grinder. These are now guide studs that help tremendously when reinstalling the tranny.

For you guys that have internal slaves, I highly recommend going with OEM on this particular part. The aftermarket clutch hydraulics are typically sourced out of China and the quality is very suspect. There are on-line dealerships that quote prices around 33% less than your local dealership, so you can use this quote to see if they will price match. If not, then order from the on-line dealership. The cost will still be significantly more than aftermarket, but when dealing with an internal slave, it is money well spent. For example, I recently went through two clutch masters. One from Schuck's which lasted 18months before leaking internally past the piston making for hard shifts. The second from NAPA lasted two whole weeks. That one was made with a metal bore and suffered a catastrophic failure. The push rod actually went through the piston. Total and immediate loss of hydraulic pressure. All pressure escaped through the reservoir check valve and blew through the vent in the reservoir cap. What a mess. Fortunately I was preparing to back out of the garage at the time it happened. Both of these aftermarket parts were made in China. My OEM replacement was made in the USA. I definitely won't be buying any aftermarket brake masters from anyone for this reason. Yes, the aftermarket parts are warrantied, but they don't cover tow charges or my time that is required to fix what never should have broke to begin with. Let alone the cost involved should the failure cause an accident.

I deff agree in a master with all the internal issues that you can encounter.
But how bout a slave?? Seems like they would all be more or less the same as far as design and operation?

With an internal slave and all the work it entails to replace, why would you risk it. If poor quality is an issue with the aftermarket masters, it is reasonable to assume the same problem would exist with aftermarket slaves. Several members have reported early failures with aftermarket internal slaves and ended up switching to an external set up due to the aggravation they encountered. If you stay with the internal set up, you are asking for trouble IMHO if you skimp by going aftermarket. The OEM part should last about as long as the clutch. With an external slave, it is easy to replace, so an aftermarket may be worth the risk. For me, it's not worth my time given my experiences with the aftermarket quality found out there today.

i just purchased a clutch kit from autozone last week i installed it and put the tranny back up but when i went to bleed the clutch it sounds like its pissing out inside of the bellhousing and then leaking out the bottom of it idk if one of the clips on the clutch lines popped out or if i just busted a line.... Anyone have a familiar problem?? and do you think i will have to drop the tranny back down again??
