    Which slave cylinder to buy?

    Okay, my ls1 is slipping, so I', ordering the ls7, w/ ls2 flywheel. So which slave cylinder should I buy. Ive heard the afermarket ones are less restrictive(engage faster), any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

    Just had the ls7 kit/ ls2 flywheel installed and I got the gm slave from ws6store...$125 dollars and it releases great, and holds like a sum bitch. It's not hard to get into gear when driving hard either.

    Another thing...Have your mechanic (or yourself) replace the seal behind the pilot bearing, in the crank. Mine was cocked sideways, and oil leaked all over the clutch...we had to get one special ordered from a machine shop cause GM doesn't carry them anymore...

    As far as I know, they discontinued the older slaves. The one you get from WS6 store is the 01-02 LS1 slave. Which is the one you need.

    I would also like to know which one to get..? I have 02' camaro and my TO bearing is taking a shit so its about time to replace the whole works. I don't really want to put in a stock slave, maybe LS7 one..? Don't know if it will work. Anybody with some positive input is welcome..
