I've read quite a few posts that say the stock clutch is a very good replacement.

Ianbeaulieu 02-12-2013 06:55 PM

I'm going to go with a luk clutch kit here soon, my throw out bearing is goofing.

Ianbeaulieu 02-12-2013 07:22 PM

where can you buy those? i looked at the website and it didn't say

Sdizzzle 02-12-2013 08:28 PM

I haven't done much searching yet, but I think I saw some on autopartswarehouse.com

Someone mentioned that luk may be the oem supplier. Sorry I don't have much more info than that!

I think I got a complete clutch kit for my 89 a few years ago from autozone.

I would recoment a Luk clutch kit. That is what I just put in my YJ two weeks ago. You can order them online at various websites. I'll post a link. I got mine from Partsgeek.com (posted a link below) that will take you right to what you need. Not sure what motor you've got in your 87... But here you go.. .

87 1987 Jeep Wrangler Clutch Kit - Clutch - LUK, Sachs, Valeo - PartsGeek

Everything you need will be in the box. Slave cylinder IS included. Not bad pricing, depending on your engine, you're looking at about $120 bucks, give or take, with FREE shipping!! Very good quality parts. I called a few transmission shops around town before I ordered mine and asked them what parts they use for clutch replacements. All 3 shops told me when they order the kits, they go with Luk kits..

Good luck, it's a pain in the ass. Not terribly difficult, just annoying, and time consuming. Took me almost 8 hours from start to finish on mine.

Yeah, I did mine myself. Like I said before, it's not difficult. It's just time consuming and kind of tricky to get the transmission back in where it's supposed to be. Took me about 8 hours on a saturday. I don't have a transmission jack, so I used a forklift :dance:

Ianbeaulieu 02-13-2013 10:10 AM

haha only if i had one if those! hopefully it doesn't take then to long

Ianbeaulieu 02-14-2013 01:26 AM
