Not ME ! I was at a buddy's yesterday, and after a few adult beverages we decided to line them up. Well i spanked them both (1: 97 PSD standerd cab 5spd, 2: 97 PSD ext cab, auto). But the ol' clutch is doin a little slipin today. Guess that means it wasn't gona hold up when i hooked up to the sled. Better i found out now !

For a single disc in my trucks I have always had LuK's, and I currently own 3 Haisley Dual discs, the one I have installed is great!

Yes your gunna have to drop the tranny. You might need a new flywheel if you go with some of the more high end clutches but you should be ok with getting it machined. Most clutch companys will only warranty a clutch with proof of machineing(sp?) or purchase of a new one.
Go to the supporter page and im sure more than one deals in Luk clutches
