MT82 Clutch Spring Delete walkthrough

Did a quick video explaining how to remove the clutch assist spring with ease. Did this on my last 3.7 and had no issues from it being removed. Was left with a much more precise feel in the clutch, leaving you feeling more connected with the car when going through the gears and taking off. Some people have had play at the top of their clutch after doing so and some haven't. I haven't experienced this in either 3.7 i have done it on but I've seen a video of someone who has. If this is a problem, you can look into an aftermarket spring available from Steeda which will still give a better feel over stock.

i swapped mine with that steeda one....what a waste of effort, time and money. absolutely no difference. apparently our springs are different from the heavy GT springs, so the steeda one made no difference...steeda knows this, but advertises incorrectly.

Removed the spring from mine a while back but noticed after sitting overnight the pedal would sink about half an inch so I ended up putting it back in.

The pedal does have about 1/2" of slack, but it's not engaging the pressure plate at that point, it literally is just slack in the pedal.

Yea, but this wasnt lift up 1/2" and fall back down like slack would be. When you'd pull it up it in the am, it would stay up.

Hmm, that is interesting, because ours literally is just like a little slack / dead area.

Nice! Replaced mine (GT) with the Steeda spring. Drove a few days w/o the spring and loved it! Very good feel of engagement and little slack at the top. Got the Steeda spring and installed it. It?s better than stock for the GT, but not as good of a feel as no spring. Just feel like something will wear out faster if I run no spring. More experienced guys say it won?t, Im just chicken! Lol

It wont, it's only there to reduce pedal effort. That being said, it's 100% personal preference, there is no right or wrong.
