Oh I forgot I have the spring as well. I was considering doing 4.10s as well this year.
Yeah, you turned me onto it originally and everyone made fun of you but I honestly really appreciate it. It saved me approximately $3950 :lolol:
So much to do and do much lazy at the same time.

:dat: is a big part of it... I have the cash and it is depreciating faster than a C5 diff... but pulling the whole car apart just to spend $4K isn't all that compelling :lolol:

Has anyone replaced a clutch in one of these cars? I think it is time... the ghetto spring + ranger method just ain't doing it and my car has 117k miles. I feel like I may as well just replace the clutch, slave cylinder, and add the remote bleeder. I am still tempted to do 4.10s but I think given my wavering :plac: thoughts it is a no.

Curious if the clutch is something I can tackle in the carport over a weekend or I should just :troywax: at a shop. I figured I'd come here for real info rathr than stuff from internet heroes who say everything is easy...

If you go the shop route, have them do gears at the same time. Put the :plac: to rest and have a beast of a vette for track days.

I'm in the same boat. After this last autocross, the clutch is sticking to the floor more than usual. Needs to be properly bled for a full flush. Which means installing a remote bleeder line, which means removing the whole torque tube to get to it. At 85K miles, it also means that if I'm in there, I might as well replace the clutch and the slave cylinder along with installing the bleeding line.
I believe you have to remove the rear diff to get the torque tube out, or at least loosen it up to be able to back the splines out at the front near the engine. So all of it has to come down. So it's a but more of a process than just remove this and it's easy peasy. I plan on doing it myself since I'm in poor man mode as usual, but I haven't calculated the cost of all of the parts. I'm sure I'm missing a "while you're in there part", so I need to dig deeper into that. If I do end up doing it it'll hopefully be a good selling point if I decide to sell it sometime in the near future.

Quick google search brings up this. I dunno about the axle shafts, I'm not aiming to make big power or anything
It is strongly suggested that you replace the hydraulic clutch slave and pilot bearing while you’re in there. And while you’re at it, you might also want to think about replacing the rear axle halfshafts. All of these components can be sourced from suppliers such as Summit Racing Equipment and Corvette Central.

Thing is, the best place to get the gears done "doesn't do clutch work" so it gets a bit more complicated. It is also like $3K. I am :notsure: if the 4.10s actually make it better/more fun on track, they definitely do on the street.

All of that out of the way, I like where your head's at and that is likely the answer. The thing is just so fun and I love it. If I keep it, I will likely wind up in something more like a GTI/Si/Mini/FoST when I need a daily again rather than their big brothers, but probably :poorvette: + FoST > FoRS. Maybe I can just :troywax: on widening the driveway to make three cars less annoying.

Yeah it starts to get really expensive when you go full stop on the "while you're in there" approach.

I haven't really spent shit on car stuff other than track fees in a long time.

The shorter geared 911’s I have driven were always fun on track, but they come stock with long autobahn storming gears. Apple pie to bratwurst comparison, but shorter gears are fun.

I totally understand the "no substitute for gears" thing but at a certain point don't you have to start considering a lower mile C6 Z51 with 80 more hp and a lot less beat on every component?

I did the clutch on my car, I can't imagine doing it without a lift. I'm sure it's doable, but I wouldn't tackle it in a carport, and it'll certainly be longer than a weekend if you did. The benefit there would be the ability to take the diff to a rear end shop to have the gears done.

I wish you were closer, we could knock it out on my dad's lift in a weekend no problem. Especially since I know these cars so well.

Gears transform the car, but are :fullretard: cost on such a cheap thing. If you ever had desire for more power, I believe it's better to skip all the power shit (headers, heads, cam, etc) and just slap 4.10's in the bitch and call it a day.

That said, you need to drop all the same shit to do the clutch as gears, so the best time to do gears is when it's all apart. That's what prompted me to do the gears in mine.

Another thing, if tearing into the diff to do gears, you should really refresh everything in there. The springs and clutches are probably fried to the point where you don't really have LSD anymore, and there's beefed up pinion bearings and whatnot that are a good upgrade for continued abuse.

Then there's the right answer :dat:

With :plac: itch already flaring up, dumping money into the C5 is a lot of :butwhy:

Base C5's have pretty long gears 3.42 when combined with the wide transmission ratios. Shorter gearing has zero downside, other than fuel economy.

Pilot bearing and rear main seal are always on the list with a clutch job. Also, just get new flywheel bolts from GM or Jegs. They come with the correct sealant on the threads.

This is a very valid point. My friend bought an LS3 C6 with Z51 pack and 28k miles for like $23000. If I could sell the C5 for $11K or so plus spending $4K on it, it is getting dangerously close.

:lolol: After the long circle jerk of virtual tire kicking, purchasing another Corvette would be rather funny. Fact is they are hard to beat for what I do with my car. It would involve a bit of work but I think most of the stuff I've done (suspension, seats, exhaust, trailer hitch) could swap over to.

I also feel like :tits: would be more in support of a shiny new thing for $25K than sinking $4K+ into a car she already thinks is a POS.

:hai:

Do not ignore the clutch. It's the one and only time a car stranded me...when my C5 clutch failed. Different failure because somehow the pressure plate died and essentially locked the engine to the trans, but still. THAT SUCKED

:notwrong: I would argue that this is because I'm the only person on here to actually drive it as god intended.

A nicer one would be :neat: . I guess I'll call some shops and see what the damage on the clutch would be before overthinking anything. If I can just get it fully operational for $1500, that is really the way.

You jerk it to the Plastic Fantastic far harder than any forum member. Why you wouldn't just get a nicer one escapes me.
:notwrong: I would argue that this is because I'm the only person on here to actually drive it as god intended.

A nicer one would be :neat: . I guess I'll call some shops and see what the damage on the clutch would be before overthinking anything. If I can just get it fully operational for $1500, that is really the way.
I'd expect a clutch job to be in the $1.5k-$2k range.

I'm in the same boat. I have a new slave to go on, and I'm wondering what kind of damage had been done to my clutch with the sticky pedal. I also really want 4.10s, but I'm not sure I want to spend $3k on shit right now.
