Default Clutch recommendations

Hello there...

In a couple of months Ill be changing the clutch in my 96 Ranger (V6 3.0, MANUAL OFFCOURSE). Ive been looking at eBay and there are several kits available.

I like those LuK self adjusting clutch kits but I want to know what do you think and if theres any other you can recommend me. Im planing in changhing everything... this is the pressure plate, the disk, the slave cylinder etc.

Let me know what do you think... Ill be buying this from the US... here the clutch kits are too expensive and hard to find (the nice ones)

Thanks in advance!!!

You pay for what you get. The cheap stuff don't last long. I have a spec. Stage II and love it. The best clutch I've ever had, its expensive but worth it.

Well, that looks nice, it looks fucking nice! How much does this cost?

Is it plug-n-play for the 3.0L Vulcan?

I got the stage II. Its about 475. I replaced it all from the flywheel to the slave cylinder. I brought a lot more it was around a 1500 job for me but if ur just replacing the clucth and slave cylinder (do it why the tranny is dropped) then maybe 600
