If you are looking for an OE replacement...

LUK was the manufacturer for the TBI cars and Sach's was the manufacturer for the Turbo Cars.

Right now I have a Mopar replacement in my car that has been in there for 25 years and that includes numerous 1/4 runs.
I have a Sach's clutch kit sitting in my closet waiting for the day I need to replace the one in the car. (Hoping that day never comes)
Do not know if it is still available Sach's #K70067-03.
The part # listed in the Sach's catalog is now K0066-07, they say it fits all turbo cars from 84-90.

https://aftermarket.zf.com/remotemedia/pdfc-media/pdfc-files/pdfc-downloads-1/2017-2/pdfc-zf-clutchkit-application.pdf

Both are 9" clutch disc's, did they change the part #???

You cannot go wrong with either manufacturer, Sach's or LUK.

Just an FYI...
According to the FSM the VNT flywheel is a tapered surface and cannot be machined.

do you need big spline or small spline

I think I still have some of the old cancer discs - turbo sizes - small spline , pre 89 material, used ones

I have (KNOCK ON WOOD!!!) 25 years and 140,000 miles on my replacement clutch and the mileage does not tell the real story.
From 2012-2018 It took me 20-25 minutes to make a 4 mile trip get home everyday, traffic was always bumper to bumper and I was on/off the clutch 150 times in one trip.

It's all in how you drive the clutch. Some people slip the snot out of it. You can drive in traffic every day and not lose a clutch. Heck I drove in L.A. traffic for a month without a working clutch at all when the slave cylinder broke off the firewall. I even parallel parked the car numerous times. I've seen an old lady burn the clutch out of a mudstain in 30 seconds. I prefer a "racier" clutch and only want to do the job once. So I get the lightest one that'll handle the most torque I can and never go back.
