VERY common problem with the stock clutches. I have southbend and I will never buy anything else. As long as you dont abuse it too badly, it should last as long as you own the truck.

From experience, I buy only the clutch kit and have my own flywheel cut. It only costs about $40 to get it cut compared to $200 for a new one.

Where is the best place to purchase? What would it cost?

I have been running my red truck for almost 2 years now, and it just passed 200k miles, on what I assume is the stock clutch. So I'm prepairing myself for a clutch job, mostly because of the mileage, and the fact that I put in the DP Tuner this past summer... Now that I can actuly roast the 35's, I'm sure it's hard on the clutch!

I ordered one from Riff Raff and one from XDP. It just depends who has the best price at the time im ready for one. Some of the local parts houses around here can order them too. Not advance auto chain stores, but the locally owned performance/old timer places.

You have a flywheel made instead of getting the southbend flywheel?

he's talking about having the stock one he took out turned... resurfaced... ground down, like you would a brake rotor or drum. Cheaper, but prolongs the process, because you have to remove it, take it to the shop that will do the work, wait for it to be done, pick it up, re-install it, then install your clutch and trans...

i believe its if you dont wanna shell out the 200 bucks for a new one. if your original dont have small hairline cracks or anything.else wrong then why buy new just get it resurfaced.

Oh i understand that and agree with ya definitely cheaper getting resurfaced than buying a new one but i was under the impression that you have to ugrade to a single mass flywheel to run a south bend or a valair clutch and that the stock flywheel wouldnt work because it was a dual mass. Sorry to jack your thread i just have been looking into getting the same clutch as you ordered and am a little confused on if i have to order a new flywheel or if i can hopefully just get mine resurfaced.
