Default Sachs clutch?!?

Throw out bearing is going to shit so I'm looking for an affordable clutch kit. I've seen a few in my price range including luk and Sachs, I was literally seconds away from purchasing the luk kit when I decided to do even more research on them (don't feel like dropping transmission more than I need to) and I'm seeing nothing but horrible reviews. Apparently they've changed the design and are just garbage now. But I can't find much on the Sachs clutch components (though the little I have found has all been good) so I'm wondering if anybody here has any experience with their parts?
Thanks in advance.

Never had a issue with a sachs or lux clutches and I've installed many in Jeeps over the years.

Make sure you replace the flywheel,there is no machining since it's not flat.

LUK is an OEM clutch manufacturer, as well as Sachs. When I replaced my clutch, I ordered a LUK.
The pressure plate that arrived was stamped Sachs, as was my original pressure plate.
I'd say I got LUKy in the Sachs!
