Luk Clutch

Hey, I'm looking at getting a new clutch for my truck. I called this place and I got a quote ($450) and told me they install Luk clutches. I'd like to know if this is a good brand or if I should go look somewhere else.

Truck has a 2.3L Duratec with a 5speed manual with a Mazda M50D - R1 Transmission.

Thanks for all the help.

LUK is the OEM supplier of Ford clutches, as well as for many other car companies. I would consider them the best choice for Rangers, and thats what I just installed on my 5R55E to M5OD swap too :)

The clutch from the dealer will probably be a LUK in a different box and maybe another stamp or label. AutoZone is the only parts store that sells them locally, and apparently they have a lifetime warranty too.

LUK is the OEM clutch that came out of my truck. I put a SACHS one back in and so far so good.

I'm in the middle of replacing my clutch. Factory is Luk, and the replacement I got (which didn't say Luk on the box) is actually a Luk (it's stamped on there). What all are they replacing when they do this? I ask because that's pretty cheap.

Have them replace the slave cylinder also, because those tend to go fairly quickly (usually before the clutch).

And the rear main seal.

I wouldn't worry so much about the rear main if you don't see any oil, i've honestly never had one go bad. (knock on wood) If your truck was over 10 years old i'd say go for it.

There are no leaks by the tranny. Truck is 8 years old, so maybe next clutch change...

just check it out if you change the pilot bearing, which would require removal of the flywheel anyways.

That's alot, Originally needed my slave cylinder replaced but went ahead and replaced the clutch as well all for $740. It was a Luk brand. Great clutch, grabs way better and truck accelerates faster.

The old clutch was a Luk too. Had 160,000 miles on it.
