clutches don't shudder or make noise at the end of their life. They slip... Usually also get a nice burning garbage smell.
Clutch shudder is common on '02's from the day they came off the factory floor. It is often worse on NEW clutches. And if you have a clutch making noise, its not the clutch material, its usually the throwout bearing.
Anyway, 130k on my original yet. A couple launches and spirited driving, and probably a couple hundred boat launches/retrievals on a fairly steep ramp.
