Cost of replacing clutch on 1990 subaru loyale, mystery clunking

Hey there everybody. I need to replace the clutch on my subaru loyale and don't know if it is going to be worth my money/time. Everything else on the car is fine, except for a mysterious new clunking sound coming from the back passenger's side tire area, and even though the car has 200,000 miles on it I think its still got at least another 50,000 out of it as it has been well maintained.

Has anybody had to replace a clutch on a loyale from the early 90s? Do you remember how much it was? Also, does anybody have any idea what that clunking sound could be?

It will probably cost you I'm guessing around $700 (including labor) if its a manual, more if its automatic. Subaru's are good cars and usually last out until, and sometimes, beyond the 300k mark, at least in my experience they have.
