Autozone Clutch?

I've heard nothing but bad stuff about the $90 or so Autozone clutches
I've got an '88 4Runner with a 22RE, and I decided to replace the clutch when I put the new engine in.
I heard that they tend to slip under load, is this like towing or does it slip under heavy acceleration?
I would like to buy a nice Marlin or LCE but I just dont have the money
If this Autozone one really is a piece of junk, is there anywhere else I can get one for less?
Thanks

if i were you, i'd save up and hold out as long as i could for a quality unit like your talking about...i even went with a centerforce clutch, and it's still working like the day it was installed, which was right at 23k miles ago...good luck with your decision...

Save the $$$ if you can. Do it once, not twice.

You can buy an Exedy brand clutch for around $80-90 and they work fine, they're an OE replacement. The same company daikin/exedy makes TRD's clutches, so the quality is fine. Remember that you're gonna spend a whole day doing this, so don't skimp on quality.

Stay away from reman clutches, and most other jobber replacement clutches. Performance clutches from 4x4 suppliers are gonna be fine, but hey it's not a fenco reman unit they're selling either.

dont do it! dropping the tranny every 10k sucks! save up for a centerforce, marlin OR even a stock toyota clutch! They are tougher than you think!

You have the classic time vrs money problem. It could be that you don't need a clutch replacement at all. If money is the constraint, plan on replacing the clutch when you need to. Or you could just replace the disk now. On the other hand, the Auto Zone clutch may be just fine for your application. What evidence is there that such a unit will only last a few mles?

Do a search...there is a lot of information on clutches. Many good clutches can be had for around $100. Be sure to replace your pilot and t/o bearings as well.

let me put in this way, most of the vehicles will be "gone" or cost too much to be fixed before the 2nd quality set of clutch is worn out. my facotry clutch lasted 14years, 140k miles, well when i had it replaced, the clutch disk wasn't all gone if it wasn't the burnt flywheel, it might last even longer. i expect the Marlin ones would last not longer but at least the same, so for most folks, replacing the clutch is an Once and Done thing.

what saving $90 can do for you in the next 10 years? get the marlin and forget about it. plus, when you know you have a solid set of clucth, you are more confident to push it harder when you need it, isn't that part of fun?

OEM or better (marlin or centerforce). Don't waste your money and time.

For the average shadetree mechanic with only basic hand tools, Having to spend a whole day (weekend in my case) under the truck with the tranny on stands is not something you would want to do very often.......I have about 12,000 on a Marlin and couldn't be happier.
Marlin uses an OEM disk and a stronger pressure plate...quality is top notch.
