    Clutch not disengaging 100%?

    Had the rear jacked up the other day, and with the car in gear and the clutch fully depressed, the wheels spin...Is this normal?

    The wheels do not spin in neutral.

    Under normal driving, the clutch does not really start to grab until letting out the pedal 1/2 way. The car drives normal, but the clutch is slipping (SPEC 3) and im going to replace this summer.

    Just curious if this is normal, or if I have a slave cyl/alignment issue also...

    I rather the test with the car down on the ground in first gear. Rev the car to 5500 and if the car lurches forward, it's not fully disengaging which would prevent high RPM shifts. Bleed, bleed, and bleed! Get the old black fluid outta there and see what she does.

    With the car in the air like that its hard to tell. could just be a little drag from the pilot bearing causing the wheels to spin.
    Do the "on the ground" test like VENOMOUS said

    The car will never move forward on the ground...everything is normal. Jacked my cousin's T/A in the air and his wheels did not spin like mine...I dont think anything is really wrong, I was just curious if it was normal....

    I'd say your clutch is releasing ok or mostly ok then. There might be a very very slight drag from the clutch when its supposed to be released. I'd probably not worry too much about it.
