Default Is $1,515.00 for a new clutch, pivot ball, and flywheel to expensive?

I've attached a picture of the quote. Also, the flywheel was resurfaced about 4 years ago when I replaced the clutch. I just went to Aamco to get some things out of my vehicle and the flywheel was sitting there and I rubbed my fingers across it and it was as smooth as silk. No groves or wear at all. I asked him if it could be resurfaced and he said no because he would have to take to much off? Please help me out. Thanks!

It's for a 2001 GT 4.6. Thanks!

Yes it is to much. But it being already taken apart, have you already agreed to that price? It is your flywheel, your property. So if you are thinking you are getting screwed on the flywheel, take it to someone else to get a second opinion. However I suspect this would not go over well with Aamco. How did you wear out a clutch that quick?

I have told him that I want to get a few other prices as this seemed a bit excessive. I already owe them $215.00 for removing the transmission.

I think you really are taken to the cleaners here. The charges for the labor are high and the parts prices are outrageous!

Take a look at the eBay link for parts prices:http://www.ebay.com/sch/Transmission...+4.6l&_vxp=mtr

If nothing else, buy the parts and take them to the shop. You will save a ton of money.

I just did my clutch /flywheel myself... I paid 260 for the clutch and 340 for the flywheel...Exedy stage 2, and exedy lightweight... 1500 sounds outrageous
