Fly wheel replaced?

If the springs in clutch plate repeat fail sounds like bad parts or driver abuse

" loose nut on steering wheel?"

Are you using luk clutch?

What clutch kit & model # are you installing? What does the kit you're installing include?

Wondering if you are getting the wrong Part # clutch for your application. 4 cyl. and 6 cyl. are different. What brand of clutches are you using?

You don't need nor do you even want a Centerforce clutch in your TJ. Centerforce clutches were not designed for the types of uses typical to a Jeep. If all of those failed clutches were made by Brute Force, it's time to give up on that brand. Get yourself a Luk 05-065 clutch kit, it's a good long-lasting (200k miles is typical) clutch kit that includes everything needed. My Luk survived being literally smoked many times while rock crawling and it still looked good at 165k miles when out of caution (it was still working fine) I decided to change it.
