    Sounds like Throwout bearing. You can get it separate or it also comes with the GM slave cylinder. If your funds allow it, a new slave is a good idea while you're in there.

    Just making sure, I figured that was the problem, I was already planning on the tick slave, and the ls7 clutch set up while I was in there is this something I can do in the drive way with no problems or should I just go ahead and take the shop butt kicking when it comes to this...

    Tick makes a nice Master Cylinder. I'm not aware of a Tick Slave. Most people (including Tick) recommend installing a GM Slave cylinder and nothing else. Avoid the cheap Chinese slave cylinders sold at the parts stores.
    A clutch and slave cylinder swap can definitely be done at home. You just have to be able to get the car safely up in the air and pull the transmission out. Read as much as you can about installing a clutch before you tackle it so you know what to expect. And ask questions if you need to.

    Cool deal I was just ending up planning on buying everything from kyspeed since I have bought sfc from them, and just putting the car in the shop hopefully it holds up on me until next weekend cause it is acting up horribly I try to be as easy as possible on it so it won't mess the tranny up....
