I bought my truck w/ 120K miles on it. I assume the clutch that was in it was what it came with. I replaced it with a Valair. The "stocker" was stamped LUK. Did they come with LUK clutches from the factory, or did mine get an early replacement?
But to answer your question, I would spend my money on a Valair or Southbend. I am happy with the holding capability of my Valair single. Wish I would have gone double though!!!
Oh yeah, My LUK was slipping at around 260 hp while towing.
well yeah i know they arent made for that! but that was shortly after i put 150's and a bd special on my truck .. it was starting to slip real bad in 5th and 6th so a new clutch was in order.. just havin some fun before i replaced it with a valair!
My stock clutch was a LUK also. Im sure it's a good clutch if you are looking for a stock replacement for a stock truck. I replaced mine at around 100,000 miles...I had just put the comp on it a couple of months prior to the clutch starting to slip.
