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.

from my experience there's nothing better than OEM. . .

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
