It's pretty common for the aftermarket ones to wear out quickly. It could be that your TOB is resting on the pressure plate fingers, those will cause it to wear out prematurely as well.

Mines wore out too. I ordered a ford racing throw our and pilot bearing yesterday. I heard aftermarket ones don't last long, wear out, and start chattering

I agree. Do the entire clutch and use the Ford Racing Bearings (throw out and pilot)

You can start out by trying the TOB free-play mod (Azure wrote a good write-up on it) see if that works at least for the time being.

Depends completely on what your plans in the near future for the car and your ultimate goal.

I'm going into college and I'm not going to be throwing that much money into the engine yet.. It's still stock besides a catback. The clutch I have now seems real stiff compared to other manuals I've driven but it's had this clutch on since I bought it

Youll find the stiff pedal to be more about the lack of grease on the splines where everything slides, definetly go with the Ford Racing stuff.

It aint hard. Ittl be a little harder if u have a 3650 compared to a t45 tho 3650 u have to pull the tranny and a bellhousing as a whole. T45 u can just un bolt the 4 from the bellhousing and pull the tranny. I have done 3 or 4 clutches myself.

The starter bolt sucks! Leave it out when you finally get it. Trust me it saves a lot of time

I recommend alot of extensions , and swivel to get to start bolts

( go from front and work your way under or let the motor mount )

5-Speed Swap Instructions

This is a write-up on an auto to manual swap but the removal of the trans is almost identical, and the installation of the manual (other than the pedal part) is golden. Check it out.

Good luck and let us know how it goes when you tackle it.

I thought I was going to be doing my clutch but as it turned out the whine was coming from my differential. That isn't a job I will be trying to tackle on my own.
