Partsgeek.com. Buy a Luk clutch kit. Everything you need is included. Got mine for $100.16 free shipping.

Just bought mine from Quadratec, I've put about 1200 miles on it so far and I'm very happy! Cost me $260 for the clutch disc, throwout bearing, slave cyl, pilot bearing and alignment tool, pressure plate and flywheel. Might even be a little cheaper for you cause a lot of the parts were unique for my '93 and only for that model year, therefore costing a little more.

Mines a 93 as well. Like I posted above. I got everything I needed in the Luk kit from partsgeek.com for $100

Depends on your available equipment, and experience level. It's not extremely difficult. However if you don't know what your doing, you'll be lost quickly. If that makes any sense. I had someone helping me who's done it multiple times before. We didn't really have proper equipment (transmission jack). We used a floor jack, a 2x4 and a forklift.

You have to drop your transmission out, move it back. And depending on year you'll have either an internal or external slave cylinder. Mine is a 93. So my slave was internal. So I had to remove the bell housing from the tranny in order to get to the slave. Hardest part was getting tranny aligned properly when putting it back Otto place.

Took us about 7 hours start to finish. Good luck.

I will say that for me paying a shop to do it was just not an option. I was not going to fork out 700 bucks to do a job I knew I could do on my own. If you are a complete novice on the matter and don't have anyone who is expierenced to help, you will run the risk of doing more harm than good by taking this one on.

Like I said before, it's not extremely hard, but its complicated. I am no means a mechanic. But I'm handy with a wrench. This was my first clutch job. Or anything having to do with a tranny for that matter.
