Rockauto.com has several different brands of CMC available. Any experience with any of these? Some other reason to suggest one over the other?

DORMAN Part # CM640015 {#1M5Z7A543AA, CMA640015, YS4Z7A543AA}
$28.79

RHINOPAC/WORLD CAR Part # M0740 ZX4 ST
$37.79

WAGNER Part # CM140487 {#F140487}
$42.79

SACHS Part # SH5219
* Stocked in outlying warehouse--shipping delayed up to 2 business days
$45.79

BRUTE POWER Part # 800049
$51.75

Note: rockauto.com says the Dorman has a lifetime warranty. However, if they make crappy parts I'll go with another brand as I'd rather not do this repair again any time soon.

EDIT:
Replacement part from Ford (Tousley)
$45.15

My local Autozone has in stock (also with a lifetime warranty):
Duralast
$34.9

EDIT Again: Regardless of brand these all look identical.


Thanks!

Regardless of the brand, it is most important to be sure the new M/C comes with the hydraulic line retaining clips. The clips tend to rot away in-service. The Ford part does have them and is a high-quality unit (for a plastic part) made in Germany.

My long term experience with German made automotive hydraulic parts(on VWs, Porsches, BMWs, and now foci) has not been good. So far the Dorman (China) clutch M/C I bought from Rock Auto has lasted three years and is still doing fine. In any case, after your first replacement, any subsequent repeat will go much quicker and easier than the first time around.
Good luck,
Monoblanco
