I went to Advanced Auto to see what a new clutch is going to cost me. Does 177.77 sound reasonable for a stock clutch replacement?

I don't know why it sounded a bit over priced. I'm stopping tomorrow at AutoZone and seeing what thier price is.

I know the clutch is a vital part of the drivetrain, but 177.77 jsut sounds expensive for a stock replacement... *shrug* maybe I'm cheap. lol.

That's what I was thinking too. I have a napa, but they're all muscle car gear heads. I don't shop there because I dont feel I should have to defend my car choice every time I want an oil filter or belt of some sort. When I had my first (this is my 3rd) CRX, I stopped there one time and asked about a cap and rotor, and the guy behind the counter was smirking and asked me, "Son, do you want a clear one so when you rev your gerbel you can see his eyes glow?" I was pretty upset of his ognorant comment and have refused to buy from there since.

I'll check AutoZone tomorrow. Thanks for the tip.

exedy off ebay is your best friend.....
It's a bone stock Dx .. is the exedy a "performance" cluthc, or is ir OEM-ish?
Exedy is made by Daiken.. the OEM Honda supplier. They make an "OEM" clutch, which I noticed was a bit grabbier, plus they make more performance orientated clutches

I also bought the Exedy "stage 1" oem replacement kit for ebay. It is a very good clutch so far, I have put about 5000 miles on it. I got the one that includes the lite flywheel, I didn't need it, but figured what the hell.

It is so nice findling inexpensive quality parts for our cars. Just the other day I was shopping for a new clutch for my c230k coupe...only $1200 for a new clutch set with release bearing and pressure plate.

I spent about $700 for the clutch set and aluminum flywheel for my Rex and I thought that was a lot.

I've never heard any problems with the clutches on ebay for oem.
