Default Do you guys just change the clutch disc?

After your aftermarket clutch needs to be replaced, do you guys replace the clutch disc only or replacing the whole new clutch kit?

Every time you pull the tranny to change clutch, you should always change the clutch disc, pressure plate, and throw-out bearing.

It really depends on how many miles the aftermarket clutch pressure plate has and what the condition of the fingers are in. It is really an issue of "do you want to risk spending money for a second install to replace a possible too worn pressure plate". IMO, once my clutch goes, I'm just going to get a replacement kevlar disc.

do the whole thing! you won't regret it... also check the flywheel for wear and hotspots... you don't want to have to waste the time and $$$ to go in twice when you could have gone in once. it's worth the $$ up front to do it right the first time.

Default also turn the flywheel

On any high HP application to seat the new disk right you need to turn the flywheel. It does not cost that much nor does it take alot of time. It is well worth the time and money spent to know it is done correctly.

You certainly do not have to change everything everytime you are in there...definately do inspect everything though.

ZIts pretty easy to do...look for hot spots and cracks on the flywheel, as well as signs of uneven wear on the disk. For the pressure plate, again you are looking for any fingers that seem out of whack, as well as cracking or hot spots on the friction plate.
