I had my clutch ('88 90Q) replaced a year or so ago in Phoenix.  I could not 
find an aftermarket clutch, but Net discounts cut the cost to about $200(?) for 
parts.  The shop that replaced charge about $300-$400 for labor (10 hours?). The 
problem is removing the tranny apparently takes a couple of hours.
