Do a search online... there is a lot of talk about a quick, cheap fix to get the clutch to engage by removing a shim to adjust the air gap.
If you actually need a new clutch, then I vote for a full replacement also. It sure would suck to fix the clutch only to find out that your compressor gets a leak in the near future.
I just replaced mine, along with a new drier/accumulator and an orifice tube. Both of those items will be necessary in order to qualify for the compressor warranty, plus they are both smart things to do at the same time.
I used all Motorcraft parts, and the prices were reasonable.
