    Smile LS7 Clutch/LS2 Flywheel question

    I have purchased the aforementioned clutch/flywheel combo...thank you www.sdparts.com.

    Do I need to have the flywheel/pp machined/balanced prior to installation?

    I'm installing next week, so I just want to make sure I do everything I should to have the best performance/longevity.

    I thought they were balanced but not 100% sure...I never got mine balanced and I don't seem to have any problems. Thing grabs like crazy!!!

    I was told that they were balanced as well and I too haven't had any problems with it at all!

    Thanks for the quick replies. That sets my mind at ease. My stock clutch has been slipping at the track since I got the car from new. My input shaft bearing also has paid the maximum penalty, so that will be replaced as well, along with the slave cylinder, and pilot bearing.

    Makes sense to do it all while you're in there! My slave was broken in half lol. Wonder why the clutch was slipping...

    I never did anything to mine but install it. It's been great. I havn't been to the track with mine, only street driven.

    It holds very well at the track!!! Got a little soft after the 3rd run, but pumped the pedal a few times and it went away.

    Thats cool. Thats good to know. My car won't be making but the rare trip down the track so I'm not too concerned about it.

    Thanks again for the replies. I had the kit installed last week and she's pulling well and hard. The tires seem to roast a little easier through 1st/2nd, so I will need some fresh rubber next season. I hope to dyno the car next week, so I'll be happy to post that up as well.
