    Ive been puttin it off for a few months now but its now time to replace the clutch. I got a feelin that the owner before me was a clutch rider. I really wanna spend a 1000$ on a clutch like i want a hole in the head. I would rather buy some coilovers instead.

    So replace it yourself, its a pain but there are instructions here and the manual is available All you need is a few tools a trans jack, a garage and a lot of " no problem, I can do this"

    fack, i dunno. that seems like a little more to take on then i should. Im mechanically inclined but not mechanically inclined enough to do that. I think its around 700$ or somethin stupid like that just for the clutch itself.

    Getting ready for my frame swap. I checked prices for shocks, upper control arms, and yes... the clutch assembly.
    list/ discount
    reman clutch $134.32 $114.17
    bearing assmbly $64.22 $54.59
    reman disc clutch $105.78 $89.91
    bearing, radial $6.14 $5.22

    As you can see, not that expensive.

    I think list of $310.46 and discount price of $263.89 seems reasonable for parts to me.
    Haven't checked to see what the labor will be. Should be cheaper when the drivetrain is out of the truck and on the floor.

    DIY! I rebuilt my auto by myself.. a simple clutch will be easy. Check out RockAuto.com for damn good clutch prices. Im guessing $150 for a complete clutch kit and about $40 to get the flywheel resurfaced.. Pretty sure you can do this for under $200 if you decide to do it yourself.

    All this job takes is following instructions, having a trans jack to make it easy, a flat spot or a garage and a little muscle

    It really is not that complicated to do, just takes time and some muscle. I've never had to change the clutch on my Yota, but have on Ford,Chevy,Dodge trucks and Suzuki Samurais. Hardest part for me was the pilot bearing, getting it out and lining the new 1 up, and stabbing the tranny back in. I always used a floor jack, but rent a tranny jack, much easier when stabbing it back in.

    Do it youself. My truck is my first car and i replaced the clutch a couple months ago. it was a bear allright but so worth the money I saved. it was the most fun i hope i never have to do again

    I know I can do it because I did it in my '85 years ago.

    The difference this time is the tranny will be out of the truck while getting the frame swap done on my '01.

    Less work for the mechanic but I'm sure they won't let me do it while in the dealers shop.
