Default Diffrence in clutch kits?

Has anyone had better luck with one Brand vs another? My last came from NAPA. 2 years (around 18,000 miles) and the slave is gone again. Is it all of them or have they improved any.. Thanks

Thanks for the help.. And I agree, I also think LUK is the OEM... I decided to go with the LUK.. Also it should be noted the slaves have been upgraded with a rubber boot around the spring.. I am guessing to keep dirt out..According to the mechanics from the shop it is making a big diffrence on the slave bearings..

I hate to keep piling on things to do, but I will, lol, you might consider changing the pilot bearing and the rear main seal......
