I just looked and it was over $200 off. Great price! And, you even get the $5 alignment tool.

I've bought a lot of things from Amazon and only had one problem. Let us know how it works when you get installed... Ron

I'm planning on doing it over spring break sometime as work will be slow. It seems like a well put together kit, and it's not made in China - the UK actually

I wonder what the torque rating is because that is a fantasric deal. I bought a viggen clutch and pp from a company called importec. I think I paid 376 with a nordic slave and overnight shipping. It was the cheapest viggen kit I found and after 2 1/2 months it has driven really well. Would like to hear more on how it performs when you install though

interestingly enough they list the same part number for the 2.3 (viggen) - no idea if that's just because the clutch size is the same, or if it handles the extra power.

I am planning going to stage 2 at some point... we'll see!

After looking at numerous websites I will agree with you that it is most likely the viggen clutch as it is listed as such in the luk product catalog. Hopefully theyll be one left when I need it lol

I don't think this is a proper viggen clutch/pp further investigation on the LUK website shows that they do infact list this set for the 2.3L 1999 saab, but they also list it for the 2.0 Liter 1999 saab 9-3. As far as fitting is concerned that is correct, both clutches are interchangeable, the splines on the clutch are the same size, the difference is the strength of the pressure plate and the diameter of the clutch disk. If they are listing it as interchangeable for both models I am skeptical that it is the more beefy viggen set.

They might be "listing" as interchangeable because it fits more than one car.

If you want a true Viggen clutch, you are going to have to buy a Saab OEM Viggen clutch... Ron

i know this is a little old, but chances are that the LUK pressure plate is rated above the Viggen clamping force. they claim that all their products meet or exceed stock specs.

I think it is really good deal as clutch kit came with slave cylinder in just $255 which sounds like low in cost. Can you share the Amazon link so that people planning to buy one can easily go through this. Thanks!

I did a search for LUK 21-022 and it was the only hit. The site tells me this kit will fit my 02 9-3 SE. I noticed one of the 2 feedbacks said that the kit they got didn't fit their car. If 'Bill' is a poster here, mind sharing what happened?

this kit slips over 10psi or you sold the kit thinking your current one would work and now it slips.

LUK is part of the Schaeffler Group, whilst Sachs is part of ZF Automotive, which includes the Lemforder, Boge and ZF brands, but not LUK.
from saab scene.

LUK and SACHS are NOT the same.
LUk in my experience is weak.
SACHS in my experience is not.
