Default clutch went out which brand should i use and what

all do I need to replace while I got the trans out. my pt is a 2003 . I figure
1 the clutch assembly
2 axle seals
3 transmission mount
4 transmission fluid
5 the clutch slave cylinder(still works good so im on the fence about this one
6 shifter cable bushings

my pt has 134k miles. im going to buy new shocks and struts while im at it
my car will be used in the city and highways and sometimes will be used to tow a trailer

I would look at getting another good quality throwout bearing.

I would skip the trans mount and slave cylinder. Save your money. I would leave the slave hydraulic line attached unless you buy the master and slave together as a pre bled kit.

I used the $145 clutch on rock auto and I beat the hell out of it. Worked fine for me.

can get all your parts at rockauto . i went with the solid flywheel conversion kit but that costs a little more. the clutch slave piece snapped when it was shipped although, so i just re-used my old one which worked fine.
the solid flywheel conversion will give you a better performance feel since the dual-mass clutch absorbs and wastes energy.
