    This is what I run - prolly overkill for you though. Me too, but I like not having to worry. KY Speed has some good clutches at good prices. I used to run a Ram clutch and I liked it too. Don't remember $ off hand.

    Are you 100% positive the "clutch" is going out and couldn't be the hydraulic fluid or slave/master cylinder? What are the symptoms?

    imho Prolly the clutch. Are you getting any funny smells like something is burning or smoke when climbing hills/grades?

    I wouldn't reccommend CenterForce to anyone. Sorry, but they don't last long usually in a F-Body. And when they go, they take out the slave cylinder with them. Mine lasted 6 months, and I didn't realize it messed up the slave. Installed a SPEC 3+ and the slave took out the SPEC in less than a month. Went with a Diamond stage 3 clutch from Texas Drivetrain Performance 3 years and @30,000 miles ago. No issues whatsoever. And I had H/C/I the entire time until 1 year ago, installed a whole new block, bigger cubes :-). Still grabs like new on the street and at the track.


    O, and the Diamond stage 3 complete kit is only $799
    Includes Basic Kit (Disc/Pressure Plate Pilot Bearing, Alignment Tool)
    PLUS Flywheel and Slave Cylinder with Throwout Bearing
