    Clutch Slipping - Sticker Shock!

    So my clutch just started slipping last week. 2002 CETA 27k Miles. I bought the car last year with 21k miles. I can only guess they were hard working miles. I'm pretty easy on it.
    I have two prices so far, both around $1500 installed for the GM Clutch kit. Parts over $1,000. I know I can buy a cheaper clutch, but I have read a lot of issues on here about different clutches.
    I just want a long lasting clutch for an easy driver.

    No rush here, I can continue to drive the car probably for a while. Just when I get on it a little in any gear, I can feel the slip, sometimes it's bad.

    Looking for suggestions.

    Thanks
    Kelly

    Ls7 clutch from KYSPEED if you plan on keeping the car under 450rwhp. Stock clutch pedal feel and really reliable.

    sent you a PM

    also shop around on the install.

    we charge $300 for the clutch install and $0 for a slave at the same time ( 2 10MM blots is all).

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Thanks. Both places I have talked to said they would only go with the GM clutch because of ease of install. I will call the 1st place back. It is a good reputable performance shop, so I'm sure they can work with anything.

    Thanks

    Probably want to do the drill mod too while you are in there!

    It's funny, I get on this site and it seems there is always a Mod to do.

    I bought my car last year and within two days I did the Skip Shift Mod. Never looked back, it works great.

    So yea, I just did a quick search on the Drill Mod and found a nice video. Seemed like a lot of work, but the overall drilling seemed pretty quick.
    My real question is, will I notice the Mod. I do not race, and never have noticed any problems shifting.

    Thanks

    Lots of people have the sticky pedal issue. I've never experienced it. It's more or less to prevent it from happening due to hydraulic issues. From what I have read, after the mod is done, the pedal feels smoother. I personally don't have it done and I've never felt anything out of the normal. My car doesn't see many miles though, but I do drive it spirited

    I definitely noticed a difference after the drill mod. I've felt my release point/catch point was very consistent and predictable afterwards.
