Need a new clutch. Which should i get?

I currently have a Centerforce II in my truck since 2006. Last Thursday It wouldn't get in gear while the engine is running. I checked the master(new) and slave and it looks like its working properly. The pressure plate must be worn or bent. So i'm in need of a new clutch kit.

SummitRacing-Centerforce Dual Friction DF522018 Fullface clutch disk $413 shipped

Paradise Racing- Competition Clutch stage 4 with 6 puck sprung
(I'll have to send an email because there's no shipping method available on the checkout)

LCEngineering-Metalic clutch kit 6 puck sprung $371 shipped

Re: Need a new clutch. Which should i get?

i had a similar problem a few months ago. 175k everything oem,the master and slave seemed to work fine.i replaced the clutch,flywheel,and bearings that had no visible wear. same problem remained. flushed/bleed the fluid and it was good as new. i recommend trying that first, i have heard that centerforce clutches have had pressure plate issues after a short time. if you do get a new clutch id choose paradise

I bled it and its still wont get in gear. Thats why i figured the master and slave is ok. I looked at the slave while i have a buddy push the clutch in. Looked like its functioning properly. I have a stage II Centerforce clutch for 6 years so i think its about time to replace it.

I'm thinkin of the LC kit. USPS priority mail. Paradise, i have to email them for a shipping quote. I want that 6 puck sprung from LC

I forgot URD has clutches. Looking at website right now.....

edit: I bought a Fidanza flywheel from Luis years ago. I forgot if it was the 2.7L 3RZ which is bigger (10"), or a 2.4L 2RZ (9 1/4")

Well, i have 6 years of daily driving and street racing.

I think i'll get Competition clutch because the Outlaw FWD world record holder Speedfactory Racing who helped me with my turbo setup uses it.
