    Several vendors like Kentucky speed carry the LS7 clutch. Plus it's what GM uses right now to replace ls1 clutches at the dealerships. You can get them through several places like gmpartsdirect or the dealerships themselves.

    If the car is close to stock it's about the best you can get that drives like stock. If it's been modified or you plan on modifying hp much beyond stock do yourself a favor and get something like a monster clutch. They don't tend to have the problems of the LS7 clutch that arises from it being a self adjusting clutch.
    Mods - Lid, Skip Shift Eliminator, MGW shifter, UMI SFCs, Founders Lower Control Arms, Founders Panhard Bar, Founders Adj. Torque Arm, UMI Torque arm mount, MWC Drive shaft safety loop, KONI Yellows, Strano Springs, Strano Sway bars, UMI Upper and lower A Arms, 160 thermostat, TSP headers and TSP true duals Monster stage 2 clutch, racetronix fuel pump, Strange S60 rear axle and tune by Frost.

    I had a LS7 clutch and loved it. However like said above I'm a little more past it's capabilities so I now have a Monster Stg4.

    The biggest problems are when you upgrade to a Tick MC after you've been running a LS7 clutch for a while.
