Clutches.

I installed a clutch today from Centerforce. Man.. this thing has TWICE as much frictional material as a Zoom or OEM Clutch.

I would HIGHLY recommend these clutches even though they have a 400-500 mile break in period of ' stop and go ' driving and untill broken in you really do NOT want to ' Hammer ' them.

Part #'s :
3.0's from 1994-2006 = DF975975 . Its a dual friction disc.
4.0's from 2001-2005 = DF145117 . Its a dual friction disc as well.

Suspension tech????

I have the same clutch and it grabs every time. It keeps the stock pedal pressure too. The only thing I don't like about it is that it hates being slipped.

I ran a center force on my Ghia, and yeah, they rock. With the stock clutch in it, it would just give way ant any more that 1/2 to 3/4 throttle, but with the center force, never a slip. That can be a bad thing though, as the first time I launched the car after breaking the clutch in, I grenaded the tranny and diff.
