Good luck! If you haven't done so already you should think about changing out the clutch cable assembly. I just did mine and it is a whole lot smoother now! This is what I put in 1996 2004 Mustang Clutch Cable Quadrant and Firewall Adjuster Kit | eBay

From what Iv seen on it it's not bad. I watched a video online of an episode from two guys garage where they toured the company and showed how they make them. The company is perfection clutch. The make stock replacement clutches and zoom is the performance side of it. Plus I know they sell them at advanced, and Pepboys speed shop

Adjustable clutch cables are crap. This is a known fact. You'll be replacing it soon

It's not an adjustable cable. It comes with the firewall adjuster to adjust the cable between the trans and the quadrant that connects to the pedal. So far I love this mod! It is a little harder to push, especially in the cold, but it is well worth it! It was an easy install and I recommend it without hesitation. And again...it is a non-adjustable cable with a firewall adjuster. And the tripple-hook quadrant is so much better than the POS stock plastic quadrant.

Good luck man!

I should have had the dealer replace my rear main too, when the dealer replaced my tranny.

Glad to hear it man! Thanks for the pics too! I have been toying with the idea of doing mine as well but it is not needed yet and we are getting into the winter. I hate working on my car in the cold! How much did you spend if you don't mind me asking?

It was fairly cheap since I did the work my self, the clutch kit was 190$ and the rear main seal was 17$ and two cans of of break cleaner to clean every thing up for 8$ so all in all about $220.... Not bad if u ask me! Yea luckily it was a nice weekend so weather wasn't an issue here. But it was hard in the drive way on ramps.. Especially puttin the tranny back in.

Questions for ya. Once you get the tranny out do you just pull the clutch fork and/TOB assembly off? Didn't know if there was a special way since I've not done this before. Then does the TOB just pop out and then you pop one back in? Cant find any vids on this part of the install. Also once that's off does the new one just slide/pop back in? Any specific grease for the shaft it slides on when done? Thanks man just ordered mine and it will be here Saturday. Clutch is good i just want to get rid of that darn TOB noise.
