The kit had all of the parts it was supposed to have, including the alternative alignment tool, and fit perfectly onto the Perfection flywheel I bought. It was simpler, cheaper, and better to buy their flywheel and install that than getting the old flywheel machined. 2000 miles and smooth shifting and no problems, it grabs a bit better than the OEM clutch I had on before. Excellent Value!

Do NOT Use With Bolt Ons!

This clutch worked great as a strict daily driver OEM replacement. Don't even think about using this clutch if you have bolt ons though. It didn't like a 50 hp shot of nitrous. It got me into the 13's once in my Celica. After that it started to slip. This is a great cheap replacement that will probably last thousands of unaggressive miles. It has stock pedal feel and a tiny bit better than stock holding power.

    Comments about CARQUEST Clutch New Clutch Set:

    I've done v8 RWD clutches, always had to buy clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing and tool to align them as separates. This included all in one kit. Alignment was spot on, the tranny aligned in minutes, on the first try. Clutch performs great, nice smooth response now. Hopefully this breathed another 260k miles back into my car.

      Comments about CARQUEST Clutch New Clutch Set:

      I found that for the price of the clutch, pressure plate and throwout bearing kit, it is very economical. it was also nice to see the kit included an alienment shaft, that made the instalation much easier. driving the car after the clutch change was a totally new experiance. the clutch grabs and engages very smoothly.
