clutch

i think my clutch may be beginning to slip, it seems like when i get on it real hard it dont feel like all the powers there that used to be, does that sound like the clutch??

and when i go to replace it, what clutch should i get? and do i need to replace the tob, clutch fork and everything?? thanks.

I'm not sure if it's your clutch or not but yes when you replace your clutch you only want to do it once you don't want something you didn't replace to fail then you will be kicking your self for not doing it. So you'll need clutch disk, pressure plate, throw out bearing, pilot bearing, clutch fork, fly wheel replace or resurface, clutch cable would be a good idea, if you want to swap out the h-pipe you'll have it out might as well, also a trans mount if yours is shot.

Quite a bit but it will be worth it you don't want to go the cheap way out and buy a cheap clutch or cheap bearings believe me I bought a clutch kit from a local parts store now my car shifts like crap and you won't want cheap bearings to fail. You can buy it in kits from am, lmr, summit or jegs it just depends on what you want.

I hear a lotta good about Centerforce Dual Friction clutches. In addition to being a performance clutch, it also is better than most for everyday driving.

Plus all the numbers in existence. The centreforce will be my next clutch along with an aluminum flywheel. Spend the extra 6 bucks on the ford racing TOB

Both are good clutches but the centreforce will grab harder on hard accel and is easier to use under normal driving.

Okay, how hard are clutches to install?

I have the exedy stage 2 and I am super pleased I also did the ford racing TOB an pilot and a replacement flywheel along with a steeda adj clutch cable but not the clutch fork. With parts and labor it's right about at a grand to get it done at a shop they charged 440 for everything
