Slave cylinder brand

So my slave is getting really bad. I'm going to have to change the clutch as well while I have everything out. I wont be doing it myself because I don't have all the tools needed for the job. I'm taking it to my a mechanic that my Dad trusts. He seems to know his stuff because when I said I needed to change my slave cylinder he knew the tranny had to come out. We will see I guess.

So what I was wondering is what brand should I go with? I have several choices: AC Delco (durastop), Ac Delco (? its $125.79 vs $69.99 for the other one), Rhino Pac, Dorman and Raybestos. I was going to go with the most expensive one which is the AC Delco for $125 but I'm not sure. What is everyone else using?

These brands are all from Rockauto. I wonder if they honor the warranty?

For the clutch I'm getting Centerforce again. I can get a decent deal for it through **ALON** with **Modbargins**. I was going to go with Spec. Who knows I might try the Spec.

The last slave job, I went with a stock slave....from the Ford parts counter. That only lasted 15k, so when i swapped for the second time, I got a raybestos. Got 6k on that so far, along with the Spec Stage 2 clutch.

This is a link for one from Summit that I am considering when I replace mine. http://store.summitracing.com/partde...SC126893&N=700
It states it is made out of aluminum. I think the stock one is plastic but I don't know what other aftermarket ones are made of.

The base of it still looks like plastic. I will see what the parts store carries.

That must be the reason they did not get back to me when I recently inquired about them stating it being made out of aluminum.
