    change your pilot bearing and pivot ball as well. Pivot ball is $15 at the dealership and should be replaced as it gets grooves worn into it from the clutch cable. Expect to have the dealer bone you for labor charges though, my Ford dealer wanted over $100 more to do the job than the place I had it done at. As a sidenote, my pilot bearing came out in pieces bc whoever put in the last clutch hammered it in

    Is that combo that your using a pretty good street setup? I've been thinking about a clutch and flywheel at some point and I was thinking about McLeod as I've never heard any bad things about them and I'm sure the FRPP flywheel is pretty good as well.
