Anyone try an aftermarket clutch master cylinder?

Anyone try an aftermarket clutch master cylinder?

Patient is a 99.5 7.3 PSD

I had the clutch pedal push rod come out of the master cylinder a few weeks ago and I understand that I will need to swap out the entire assembly to fix as they are non-servicable. I put everything back together and it is holding for now and I put two zip ties around the pedal to the cage to help keep it from coming too far back. Ghetto fabulous ;-)

Anyhow, I have been pricing complete pre-bled systems and in addition to OEM($$), I have found two aftermarket ones--a dorman and a Rhino/AMS:

Amazon.com: Rhino Pac PS0722 Clutch Master and Slave Cylinder Assembly: Automotive Amazon.com: Rhino Pac PS0722 Clutch Master and Slave Cylinder Assembly: Automotive

Amazon.com: Dorman CC649021 Clutch Combination Master Slave Cylinder Assembly: Automotive Amazon.com: Dorman CC649021 Clutch Combination Master Slave Cylinder Assembly: Automotive
Both come with everything needed(rod/bushing/start switch).

Anybody have any experience with these(or any) aftermarket kits?

Any other recommendations?

Thanks!

I've been using the aftermarket ones from Rock Auto for a few years. I replaced the first one with an OEM pre bled set up from Ford and it didn't last as long as the originals. The aftermarket ones seem to last about the same amount of time as the Ford one did, but the aftermarket ones also come with a clutch pedal position sensor so you don't have to buy that when the cruise quits working. (I've got a couple of extra of those now since I only change them when they act up)

My biggest problem with any of them has been the roll pin that holds the line at the slave cylinder , they keep falling out . I tried glue , and RTV , this time I safety-wired it. Tim I wish I would have known about the aluminum one I just changed one last weekend .

Thanks for the info. I'm in Oregon and we don't have advance auto out here. I may order it from them online though.
