Nice. I hope to be able to put a few more miles on mine this summer. I've been really happy with it.

I'am getting ready to order the kit from SD and also the new master, from my understanding doesn't the master come with the bearing??

Ordered mine on friday from Fred Beans. I'm having it put in this week because I got a phenominal deal on the labor. Mine went prematurely...I believe one of the springs on the clutch disk came loose and is hitting bouncing around between the flywheel and pressure plate. I'll see if the mecahinc doin the work can take a couple of pics of the install to confirm if that was the cause. Good luck to everyone else (and me lol)!

My freakin clutch went last night! My TO bearing was spinning for a while and making a whining noise and last night something happened while disengaging the clutch and I heard a couple of metal clunks, it sounded like what happened above. I have a friend who is a mechanic that is checking it out and am thinking about just buying a whole new ls7 setup and having him install (total $350 labor ) Question: What all do I need to buy in order to have this done?
and what else? Do I need a new master or slave? obviously I am not very mechanically savvy.
Any help is appreciated.

When my slave and master simultaneously bit the dust, I got the LS7 kit, with 01+ slave, and stock master...only paid 200 for labor, but you get what you pay for....my cruise control hasn't worked since i got it back, and it's throwing a clutch switch malfunction code...bastard mechanic. Oh well, lesson learned. I'll do it myself or pay the extra to have it done right...............................
On a lighter note, the clutch system works great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well my clutch went in today, and good thing too cause my disk was in pieces, and my slave cylinder had leaked all over the place. Now on to the bad news... I've still got a tap coming from the bottom end and it sounds like a rod bearing....Fuck my life

As far as I know, and have read they all seem to have some sort of ticking or slight knock in the engines. Mine does and it has 63,000 miles on it. Also after my install I had the clutch/bellhousing inspection cover slightly out of place and it was up against the flywheel making a knocking type sound and I thought a rod also. But I was relieved when I found the inspection cover loose. I readjusted it and tightened the bolt and all was good again.

I'll definately check out hte inspection plate. Hopefully it's something as easy as that.

Hope it's nothing serious. I was so relieved when I found mine was as simple as snugging up a bolt.

It's really weird..the ticking sounds like its coming from the valvetrain, and at idle, it doesn't tap, under rpm's it gets a little louder but when I press in the clutch or pump my brakes it gets loud immediately.
