Steeda Clutch assist spring

Incase anyone is wondering... Get it!

I put mine in yesterday, the pedal actuation feels a bit lighter overall, could just be me though. However I can feel exactly when the clutch engages instead of the floaty kind of guess before. In fact compared to where I assumed it engaged prior to install the clutch engages close to the top of the pedal travel. I thought it was further down. In short the assist spring clearly reveals just how nebulous the OEM setup really is.

Any idea if it fixed the high rpm clutch sticking issue? Considering one.

It's solved all clutch issues I've had. No more sticking and better high rpm feedback.

I think this is more intended to be a pedal feel mod, I wouldn't count on it fixing anything.

Well i have heard the sticking issue comes from the spring setup assembly ford put in these, some people had luck with taking the spring out, so maybe with a new better spring it might fix it.

It might, but the real issue is the stock clutch itself doesn't like high rpms.

Yeah definitely a new clutch would help but i cant justify putting in a new clutch on the car at 34k miles lol so a cheap fix for now is fine.

I've done a lot of research. High rpm lock out should not be because the clutch does not engage... that would be shifter / gate / accuracy issue

From my research stock clutch will blow up if you live in the higher rpms often AND power shift / stress the clutch

I agree with this. Though there still isn't enough good info to tell why there are issues at higher rpms... for $10 this assist spring helps you feel the clutch actuation better and time your shifts better which would lead to being more accurate through the gate(s) which would solve high rpm lockouts. Worst case is it doesn't fix that for you but your shifting will have more feedback overall.
