Is my clutch going bad?

I'm hearing a grinding/whirring noise from my transmission in gear at about 2500 rpm and it gets worse as the rpms increase. It only does it while in gear. I hadn't noticed it until I got my tuner and I've been testing it out. The car made a noise similar but it was never as loud. So I'm wondering if my clutch is going out? It does feel like its slipping but I dunno... Any suggestions would be great.

I have the same problem, however I had the clutch disk replaced, I got the work done cheaply by my used car dealer so I can't really say it was quality work. However, shifting is great now, but I still have the noise. I hear ppl saying it could be the bearing or fork.

So a new clutch should fix it?

Try to start off in second gear.. if it doesn't grab,or sounds like its just reving in neutral.. then id say clutch.

I bought a Zoom performance clutch when I replaced mine 3 years ago and right away the thing was garbage so if it's going bad then good riddance. I really wanna do a ram clutch next.

I've heard to stay away from SPEC.. here's a thread I started about clutches and what not. Some people shared their opinions on SPEC. I highly recommend Centerforce dual friction first, and RAM is a very close second.

Hmm scary..... Well I found a good deal on a ram hdx clutch with matching flywheel for about $500 think I'll go with that one instead.
