Throwout bearing

I I have a 94 gt 5.0 and I was told the clutch was just replaced about 5,000 miles ago. It seems that the throw out bearing it messed up already. With a little squealing until pressure is put on the pedal. Is it smart to just replaces the whole clutch instead of just the throw out bearing? Thanks

if the clutch only has 5k on it then it shouldnt need replaced.mwhen uou take it off you should be able to tell. to me it sounds like it wasnt adjusted properly and the tob was riding against the pressure plate. it will burn up really wuick if this happens. it should only make contact when engaging the clutch.

as long as it isnt worn then it should be fine. also may not hurt to usema heavy duty tob.

I'll ride in 1-3rd gear or so and it will squeal a little until I go to change gears or put alittle pressure on the pedal and it goes away but I don't want to "ride" the clutch.

if you cant get it adjusted so it doesnt ride on the pressure plate, then there is a mod located in the stickies section with a fix.

and your welcome.
