    I'll probably do it myself, I've got a Haynes repair manuel, and the tools.

    There was a guy selling a centerforce clutch for the 2.7 in the b/s/t. Not sure if they're any good, but it was at a good price. He listed it twice on ebay, I'm not sure if it sold or not.

    I have run Center Force clutches on my last two trucks, and they are definitely better than any other OEM equivalent replacement. You won't need the HD one (had that in my first truck), and I preferred just their OEM equivalent.

    If you've never had it done before, here are some tips/things learned from experience:
    -in my Ford (not sure how it is on the Tacomas), the slave cylinder and throwout bearing were both inside the bell housing; change both while you have it out
    -bleeding the new slave might take some time, invest in a Mity-Vac bleeder
    -have the flywheel machined somewhere; ask how much they took off; you need to buy a shim in that amount to place behind the flywheel to account for the material taken off (I thought with a hydraulic clutch you could skip this step as it would self adjust, but I didn't on the Ford on the first two and they didn't last long because of this, lesson learned)
    -to re-tourque the flywheel, you might need a flywheel holding tool (I got mine from a Mac tool dealer), I needed it on my Yukon, but on my Ford I was able to wedge a long screwdriver into the teeth and bell housing
    -depending on how heavy the transmission is, and if you have a willing buddy, you might not need a transmission jack; on my Explorer, I had a buddy lift (think bicep curl) it up with a strap sitting in the cab while I went underneath and slid the input shaft into the flywheel; on the GMC, it was too damn heavy and had to buy a jack
    -the bolts from the bell housing to engine are probably different lengths, so pay attention to that
    -plan for more time than you think it will take; the first one took me a couple weeks in the evenings wrestling everything, whereas now I can do a clutch in about 5 hours

    Good luck. Keep us posted.

    FYI, The slave cylinder is mounted on the outside of the bell housing. :thumbsup:
