    Does anybody know what the average price would be to put a clutch in a 96 4x4 2.7L x-cab? I never had to put one in and want to make sure I don't get shafted.

    I'm getting ready to put one in my 95. Looking about $250 for a decent clutch but am doing the work myself. Shop rates are usually about $90/hour. Probably charge you 3+ hours.

    Thanks for info, I went to a local shop that only fixes Toyota and Nissan, he quoted me $700 for clutch and labor. I guess thats about reasonable.

    Don't waste your time on clutch alone... Get pressure plate turned,new throw out bearing and there is a spring that fastenes the fork to the throw out replace this of needed,BUT the most forgotten part on chutch replacement is the PILOT bearing. It accepts the front of the tranny splines and sits in the back of the block. It can be replaced easy when your it there GOOD LUCK

    i usually buy new clutch kit...comes with pressure plate clutch disk and normally the through out bearing... as for pilot bearing they rarely need swapped but I have done a few...also take and de-grease the flywheel and use some nice soapy sos pads to clean surface..let dry and re-install LOL i normally dont recomend just clutch disk replacement either so when I say clutch change...it means full out lol...

    I got everything replaced and the pressure plate resurfaced. The problem was the pivot or pilot bolt (don't remember which one he said), anyway it broke and went into the clutch fork. Its all good now, just like driving a brand new truck again and thanks for the help everybody.

    I did my clutch, pressure plate, through out and pilot bearings myself this past weekend, $208 for the Luk kit. So far so good.
