Luk Clutches

Has anyone had any experience with LUK clutches, someone mentioned them in another post, saying they're thicker and last longer. What brand is best?

I haven't used a Luk clutch myself, but there's quite a following for them among Ford diesel owners; in fact, I'll probably wind up buying a Luk when I need to change the truck's clutch.

I say go for it!

Also check out Centerforce clutches

I have used these on Ford diesel trucks with good results. They have soft pedal pressure, but hold very well.
