Clutch Help

Well I got the clutch picked out just need some tips before I order. Im not installing it so I need help in looking for a good shop. About how much would an install be and what should I expect when I walk in to get it swapped out? I just need like a base line to go from cause I have never replaced a clutch.

Well ill tell you that i ended up doing mine myself but never again without a lift and a pneumatic tranny jack. But i priced checked a few in town before hand one said 475 with the hydraulic upgraded installed to and the other shop said 1300 i pissed down my leg right on the spot so needless to say i did it myself with a friend and a case of the good stuff. Just be careful who you take it to should not take them more than 4 hours in my opinion.

I had mine put in last august. I took mine to the Dodge dealer that we go to, they did a good job on mine, had all the fluids changed in the tranny and transfer case and mine was 500 to 600 dollars. Don't remember the exact number, but it was around that after I bought all the fluids to put back in it.

Yeah, the local dodge dealer put my hmr in for me. I would guess any other one would. Long as they get paid, they shouldn't mind. I just didn't want some shadetree mechanic working on my truck, so I just asked one day, and they said it wouldn't be a problem. But every dealer may be different. But my motto is it Never Hurts to Ask!. Good luck with getting it in.

Ok so I asked around today and got a quote for 680 for labor. Does that sound about right?

I can't say, I have asked again since i got mine installed, but I am pretty sure mine was less than that. But could be the difference in places, people, and time.

Keep an eye out they might try to charge you for more labor than what it took it has happened at the shop i was talking bout that wanted $1082 for labor on mine. Buddy told me he got his clutch changed was going to charge him for alomost 5hr labor but the truck was parked out back for almost and hour and half pretty shi*** of anyone to try that. Just ask them what their labor rate is that should give you a rough idea

By the book

Book time is 5.4 hrs for the pressure plate, .4 for skid plate, .4 for 2 peice drive shaft, .4 to r and r flywheel. 6.6 total. We are at 80 hr. If a customer supplies parts it is 90 hr. This is because parts mark up is part of any auto shop, so labor will be higher is customer supplies parts. But you will still save money over the dealer markup, even if they charge more labor. But, remember there will be no labor warranty from the shop if parts are purchased yourself, this is one of the things customer dont understand. I cannot warranty a part that I did not purchase, nor will I install a new one for free. Hope this helps. Tim
