Opinions needed on parts.


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I found myself in need of a new clutch, pressure plate, and T/O bearing for my 2009 T2.

Joyner-USA has the OEM clutch/pressure plate for $199.99,

Silver bullet has an HD clutch/pressure plate and says its made from higher quality materials and craftsmanship than the original clutch for $240.00

My question for you guys is does anyone think the Silver bullet clutch is worth $40.00 more than the OEM clutch from joyner-USA? The original clutch lasted about 7000 miles with only moderate abuse.

Thanks for any opinions regarding parts or vendors.

I have posted my opinion before on here that there is no need to pay extra for a clutch setup in the Trooper. The factory setup is very good and most if not all problems (if someone is having them) can be found in driver misuse. When I had to pull my tranny I replaced my clutch but there was only a slight bit of wear on the old clutch. It was a waste of money & I still have it. If you search Lenny provided his opinion one time on the site. $30 & shipping, you can have my old clutch.

Thanks for the replies guys, right now I'm going by what my mechanic (THINKS) I'll need. Hopefully by next weekend he will know for sure.

It's a good buddy thing, he's a pro and I don't even like looking at a wrench. Labor price is high (usually case or two of what ever is on sale and I have to drink it with him when he's done.) just have to play the waiting game.

I will mention that I got almost immediate replies from Joyner USA and Silver bullet on a price quote. Parts in stock.

Lenny said to go with a Heavier Duty PP and disc but not a puck style disc. I went with what Silver Bullet offers and it works fine. The pedal seems the same and there is about 30% more clamping force from what I was told. The disc is an Exedy which is a good quality disc/material. For $40 I think you can't go wrong by going with the heavier duty set up.
