I've only ever had experience with the Exedy clutch.
Never had an issue with that brand. Not to say the others aren't good.

I've used " LUK " many times with no problems, exedy as well.  Not heard of the other brand... could be fine although I would not recommend anything but a factory flywheel.

I've always been partial to exedy, however the clutch in my legacy was going bad so I got the LUK (because I could do overnight shipping on amazon prime....). The clutch didn't chatter so I just buffed the flywheel and slapped the LUK clutch kit on there.


15,000 miles so far and it works really well, engages smoothly, no chattering or anything like that. I've been happy.

Of course installing it correctly, cleaning everything with brake clean and lubing all movement surfaces helps with smoothness.

Get the spring clips for TOB from dealer. They don't come with the kit.
