1999 3.8L Mustang Clutch

This is a huge job, not for the faint of heart.

I had several problems with the original clutch on a car with ~113k miles.  Hard shifting, chattering clutch, and the throwout bearing would whine when the clutch was disengaged.

I decided to go with the SPEC stage 1 clutch from American Muscle.  To put this much work and money into a car, I wanted good quality American parts.
