thrust bearing/clutch

From one problem to another....so it seems that my thrust bearing has given up...i intented to get an uprated clutch at some stage but not quite yet,so any suggestions on a good clutch(not to heavy),she`ll be running around the 320bhp mark...also any ideas on where to locate a reasonable priced thrust bearing?or is the bearing included with clutch kit?
she`s a 95 wrx import.

Re: thrust bearing/clutch

you can buy the thrust bearing for under a tenner, excedy Pink is what I suggest to most people clutch wise,
its worth getting a sti flywheel and clutch in place of the wrx one, its only 5mm but every little helps

Re: thrust bearing/clutch

Best to by the complete 3 piece clutch if some one in a workshop is doing it for you and you will have a piece of mind with some warranty. unless your doing it your self dont for get to pull the pin out for the thrust bearing

I just had a V Limited come in on the truck they said the engine is stuck and every time they pull it it springs back in the they for got to pull the little shaft out of the gear box which holds the bearing to the pressure plate they bent half of the teeths of the pressure plate.
