Clutch Replacement Help!

I have 2009 TSX and its time for clutch replacement. I got the car at 108k miles three years ago, and now its about 140k miles. The car begins shake often now when I push gas on the freeway so I know I need to change it asap. Although this is my first manual car so I don't really know what I need to buy or to replace. I am not really looking for the most expensive clutch out there, but something in the middle. Is there anything else I would need to replace like flywheel or other things? I have $300 credit on amazon that I would like to use for this purchase so if anything good in amazon lmk thanks.

Since your replacing your clutch and the transmission is out, I would suggest replacing your pressure plate and pilot bearing as well unless your getting a clutch kit which should include all that. If you want to you can also replace your flywheel to a light weight flywheel for better response as well. Check your throw out bearing while your at it and flush your transmission with some new fluid for quality assurance.. As for your shaking, it could mean that your axles(s) might be getting worn down and might need replacing but dont take my word for it. Do some investigation before buying anything.

Do all the above if you are changing the clutch. If you low on cash, skip the light weight flywheel.

With regards to shaking. Check your engine mounts, suspension bushings and front axles as suggested.
