    Need new Hydraulics;Time to Upgrade My Clutch?

    Clutch has been dropping to the floor. I flushed/bled the hydraulics 24 oz worth, but it never felt right. I've got the 98 hydraulics so probably need an upgrade on both master and slave. I'm also the bonehead that dropped the socket in the bell housing (separate post). I'm not up to taking the transmission apart so if I have it torn apart to get at the slave and the socket, should I get a whole new system? ZO6 Clutch and Pressure plate? Flywheel? What exactly do I need to get? And how much should I expect for getting this done at a shop?

    I haven't studied up on new clutches for quite a while (6 years?). For a long time when these 98 cars came out there were horrible results for clutch swaps. I had heard that the latest hardware solved a lot of the early problems. BTW I'm pretty much stock and at most would add headers and cam. Car has 62,000 miles on it. Clutch has NOT been slipping. Most easy miles, some VERY hard miles. ;-)

    Really appreciate someone bringing me into the 21 Century on LS1 clutches.
