Engine Rebuild and replacing thrust washers
Does it matter what kind of thrust washers I get for the rebuild?

I have a pair of ACL, I figured aftermarket would be the best choice. I saw the OEM ones too, so I'm not so sure if it even matters.

Use the ACL's. OEM are fine, but more often than not when you buy the crank bearing kit, it comes with the thrust washers. The purpose of the thrust washer is to prevent crank walk. We don't really have that issue to begin with.

I was able to reuse my old thrust washers and maintain the proper clearances. Any option you'd have would be fine they are not really a high wear item.

They don't really wear out too bad on the SR, even with really heavy clutches. But use the ones with the kit if you can. Might as well replace them when you do all of them.

i reused the old ones in my build. the ONLY part i reused next to the rods. i kinda wish i had replaced them now, but after 7k miles i have yet to experience issues.
