The stang is down :<

I was on the way to work this morning when I went to let the clutch out at a light and then there was a noticeable clunk in the pedal followed by the most atrocious metal on metal squeal/ grinding noise I've ever heard coming from the tranny. I've known my clutch was on its way out the door( I could hear the TOB howling and the clutch slipping) and now the pedal doesn't feel as stiff and this noise is present at all times.( depressing the clutch pedal changes the noise but doesnt make it any better. What I'm concerned about is whether or not I'm looking at something much more pricey than a clutch swap? Any input would be apreciated.

IMA, if you keep on pushing something that is failing you may start to break other things and it just may end up costing you more and more $$$$$$ in the long run. The quicker you get something fixed the better.

I'm replacing the clutch with an exedy stage 2 clutch and matching light weight flywheel a ford racing TOB and pilot bearing. Any thing else I should be expecting to replace?

I have heard good things about ram, exedy, and centerforce. I'm going with the exedy stage 2 with light weight aluminum flywheel. FR pilot bearing and TOB from AM.

Do you know what a dual friction clutch is? That's the only one somebody recommended to me. I think it's a Centerforce.

Dual friction utilizes 2 pressure plates

A dual friction provides a much better clamping force while keeping a fairly light clutch feel. Usually people don't use them until they start hitting high horsepower numbers.

I'd kinda like the lighter clutch feel idea.

I have an aftermarket, but don't know the model. It's pretty heavy and grabs nearly instantly. Not so good for everyday driving.

It took me a while to get used to it, but there are still times where I make her jolt a little.

Ok so the mustang is fixed the clutch was replaced yesterday but on the way home realized it sounded like it had an exhaust leak so I had to take it back and have them put the mid pipe back on correctly but other than that it's much better. The noise had been caused by the TOB seized up. It looked pretty bad.

Be careful with a light weight aluminum flywheel they tend to warp and get heat spots on it much quicker

Didn't end up going with an aluminum FW. Just got a new iron one. Got a good deal on a ram clutch at summit.
