Clutch kit...

Hey guys,
Its me again! Well...beside the steering wheel shaking that I need to get looked at. I'm thinking about a new clutch...as it is due soon. Thinking of replacing it with maybe UUC's stage 1 flywheel / clutch kit from understeer.com . Anybody have any experience with those? Or should I just stick to oem flywheel / clutch..? If so, what brand of oem flywheel / clutch should i use?
thanks

My mechanic has been fixing cars for like 40 years and says a clutch change is a PITA
