New Clutch/Flywheel

I just recently bought a '96 that has some problems with shifting. I'm looking into putting a new clutch and single mass flywheel in, and just wondering if there are any brands I should stay away from, or anything that works well in your rigs. Any help is appreciated!

Happy with the Luk on both our trucks. We're not going for performance. Pedal action is WAY lighter, like a car. That, and the quicker response, you'll prob chirp the tires and freak yourself out the first few times, but you get the hang of it quickly. SMF adds a LITTLE gear rollover noise, esp. on decel, but no real change at cruising speed.

I have had 2 southbend clutches.

what are your intentions with the truck? you have to know that before you pick a clutch. I have pulled my trans off too many times its not fun, but shoot I can do it pretty quick now LOL.

I have had the southbend Con O 350hp clutch, and currently I have the Con OFE rated 475 HP.

I'm not planning on anything crazy for the truck. I bought the truck so that I would have something to tow my other two cars and my belongings to new places when I get re-stationed.

As of right now everything on the truck is stock, so I don't even know where to start in the mods that I want to do...
