I got a kit from oreillys for a fair price with a lifetime warrenty. Good clutch. Just have a friend that works at a machine shop plane the flywheel.

I have found pressure plates to have lost their spring tension so it slipped like a bad clutch. I put a new disk in and a used pressure plate from a known good donor car, and it worked great. I then took the disk from the slipping clutch and tossed it in a 2.5l WRX, where it's been working great.

So a slipping clutch may not be a worn out disk, it could be a failing pressure plate. That's why it's best to replace the pressure plate along with the disk and bearings.
