Clutch overhaul, what to buy ???

Hey guys, I am going to Canada in July and I am leaving my truck with the family mechanic for a big overhaul. With 125k on my factory clutch it's time for a replacement, though I was surprised it lasted this long. It's just now starting to slip. Go Ford!

Anyway, since I have the good ol' squeaky slave cylinder I am going to have him do the clutch slave cylinder. I've heard it is best to get the improved one straight from Ford cause it doesn't squeak and it is already primed. Anyone know how much they run over just an auto parts store?

I also need to get the flywheel re-machined. I know NAPA re-machines rotors, do they do flywheels too? If anyone knows how much that would be great so I can leave him some money to get it done.

Do I need anything else besides the re-machining, the clutch set (pressure plate, cover, and pilot bearing), and the slave?

Thanks guys. Anyone who has done a Ranger clutch, your help is appreciated.

P.S. If anyone has Edge bed rails to trade for my tonneau cover, PM me.

buy a clutch kit right from the dealer, comes with a clutch, pressure plate, clutch alignment tool, slave and a pilot bearing. let me know the price before you buy it and if my price is alot lower, maybe we can work something out with the tonneau cover you have. have the flywheel resurfaced, torque the flywheel bolts in order and put teflon tape on them before re-installing them

Will do. And hey since I have getting re-geared so you know anything about rear end sounds like clunking and stuff. I've heard their is problems with lack of greasing something in the rear ends on 98-00 rangers that causes sounds. Do you know what I am talking about?

there is a TSB for slip shaft bump in the rear driveshaft of super cab 4x4 rangers but i dont think that fits your truck.

be a little more discriptive on the sounds you hear

When I gun it in a lower gear or downshift and rev up to higher RPMs it sounds like someone is dropping something heavy into the bed of the truck. Like a heavy thud.
