    New clutch needed

    I am going to need to replace my clutch, when the weather gets better up here, so my question is what do I need to get? Where
    I get my work done will let me get my own parts. So would should I get. I know the clutch pressure plate, and flywheel, but should I get a new throw out bearing as well? Any help would be appreciated. The car is a 99 SS, with 78,000 miles. I would like it done right. Thanks

    The first thing you need to decide on is which clutch you're getting and would suit your needs best.

    What is done to the car performance wise? Anything? If not, any future plans to do so? If yes, what all is done to it?

    My car is bascially stock, except for exhaust and intake. I really dont think I will be doing anything more.

    I would go with the LS7 clutch kit. It is a vast improvement over the OEM one and will not break the bank. It is very firm and can handle mos that take you to the 500 ft lbs of torque. Much more then what your current plans are capable of producing. I am also running it and have had no complaints what so ever.

    While there I would also suggest a new slave. Might as well spend the money now vs. later. The OEM stock slave is very good.


    I got my LS7 Clutch Kit from KYSpeed for $500 about 2.5 yrs ago.

    The OEM slave and Master I ordered from GMPartsDirect.com



    In regards to the master, I've done the stock one but I believe I'm going to upgrade to a Tick Performance one later on. It will be better suited for the mods I have planned out.


    This one is an extra. Tick also sells what they call a speed bleeder. It connects to the slave and you route it up along next to the hydraulic clutch line that connects the master to the slave. basically it takes a 3 person job into a 1 person job. Cost about $49 and if you have ever bleed our system before you know how much a PITA it is.

    with the LS7 clutch kit, that has the LS2 flywheel correct? Would the slave be the factory replacement (LS1) or would we need one for an LS2 or7?
