Default 06 wrx new clutch slipping

Hey guys have been doing lots of searching and can't find what I'm looking for. Sorry in advance if I just missed it.

OK so I just replaced my stock wrx clutch with an OEM one from Subaru and decided to try and reuse the flywheel. I know Subaru and a lot of people don't suggest that you reuse it even after 're surfaced. Well sure enough the clutch slips after install. I have read and read so much online and this site and nothing sounds like my issue. My mechanic thinks a bigger throw out bearing and a new flywheel could be a good test... Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated!!

Reusing the stock flywheel is problem because many of them are dual-mass. Machining can cause them to go out of balance, and the inner spring loaded disc does wear out. Mostly the symptoms are noise, vibration and inconsistent clutch feel. I would imagine that if the flywheel was was machined too much, there could be slipping.

The slipping usually means something is out of spec with the pressure plate, and disc itself.

How did you break in the new clutch? When does it start to slip?

I found out the rear driver side axle had popped out a little bit and was causing it to act like the clutch was slipping. Thanks guys !
