Get a Luk clutch kit which has everything needed including the clutch disk, pressure plate, throwout bearing, pilot bearing, and pilot shaft. The same kit ranges from $170 on sites like Dial-A-Clutch - Your LuK Clutch Kit Specialist down to often below $100 on eBay. Go for the standard Luk kit, the Luk Gold kit is meant more for trucks.

Guys, I've been told not all Jeeps use the same pilot bearing. How can I verify if the pilot bearing in the LuK kit is the one I need?

I don't want to find out the wrong one is included in de kit only after the gearbox is separated from the engine.

I need the pilot bearing no. 53009180AB

And whilst we're at it: throw out bearing should be 53008342

Can I be sure the LuK kit (#05-065) included the correct ones?

Thanks,
Martin
