Ideas for a New Clutch

I recently purchased a 03 Mustang GT 4.6l V8 and I am having a couple issues with it.

-Background Info-

The car currently has 116k miles, Cold air intake, duel exhaust with an "H" pipe, short throw shifter, and probably more. I purchased it ruffly a year ago from a used Ford lot.
The car has ran great until recently. I began getting hesitation. I changed plugs, coils, air filter, fuel pump, and cleaned MAF. I am still considering changing the EGR valve. Hesitation and ruff ride went away. Other issues are;


1. I am getting (chattering) in my clutch. I figure it is the throw rode bearing, but I am going to do the whole clutch while I am there. My question on this is which type of clutch I should consider.

2. When I take off i get a sound from my rear passenger side tire. It sounds like as if someone was to stretch a big piece of rubber too far. (Best way i can explain lol) This does not always happen, and is very faint.

3. My cluster started going as soon as I bought the car, but I am also noticing a mess with my wires under my steering column. Seems like my illumination lights do not work on my radio or push button functions. How hard is ripping the dash out and rewiring. Also, I would like to rip the traction control out of it. How hard is this to do.

I am fairly new to this and may ask dumb questions, but I figured we all gotta start somewhere.

Thanks

Re: Ideas for a New Clutch

Now, do the kits come with the throw bearing usually?

Make sure on the clutch to use ford racing throwout bearing and pilot bearing. Centerforce is the way to go but expensive. Ram seems to be good and spec is debated but i have had good luck with them too.

With Centerforce you have to buy a new T/O bearing but its only like $30

And it's a heavy duty T/O bearing

And yes they aren't cheap but their worth it IMO
