yes, i think it's a metal sleeve to cover the shaft. supposed to make the throwout bearing engage evenly?

All I know is I never had shudder problems until one day I think my clutch overheated or something.

Kit contents:
- PDM Snout Sleeve
- Throw out Bearing (oversized)
- Set Screws and Allen Wrench
- Lithium Grease
- Decal (Stating part numbers for replacement throwout bearing)
- Detailed Instructions

When the transmission came out, there didn't appear to be much wear on the snout (I've seen them worse!), but installed it regardless.

Well, So far so good! No shudder yet and the clutch operation is definatly the smoothest it has ever been! I really need to drive it some more before I can with confidance if it cured the shudder or not. But I'll keep you posted for those interested.

Here are some pictures of the kit.

Chad

Ryan,

I've got the one I was going to use on my car, but didn't because of fitment issues with my whacky setup.

I'd like to sell it, if you're interested, shoot me an email, or PM with your email so I can reply.

I cerainly would like a long term update from the people who have had this fix for a while and put some miles on it. After that I will certainly consider taking it off your hands, I appreciate the offer Legacy!

Was your experience the result of the nature of your build, i.e. lots of parts from various years/models combined?

So lets hear it folks!!!

I have not had any problems with this kit, since installed years ago now. The shudder was eliminated/reduced for quite some time, but now is not non-existant. I would install the kit again regardless, as it does eliminate the "snout wear" found with the factory setup, and seems to benefit in smoother clutch actuation. FWIW.

Yeah, that's the only thing I can think of. I have a 91 turbo legacy transmission with stock WRX clutch & pp, WRX exedy LW flywheel, 93 EJ22T engine, 92 clutch master & slave cylinder......so yeah....that's the only thing I can think of....too many parts from too many different years.

They don't list the turbo cars. Joel just started putting out the turbo ones. So I'm not sure if vendors/distributors have them or not.

I talked to Joel about a month or so ago, and he just started doing the turbo style clutches then. I forget which is pull/push on our cars, but the n/a version has been around for a while. Which ever pull/push the turbo models use just recently came out.

Looks like you can get these here - http://www.dealertuningservices.com/...idCategory=114 - or here - http://www.subaruwrxparts.com/04rs-drivetrain.html . Both listings appear to be N/A models.

Good find, but DAMN... $125. I guess it's a nicely machined part and a new bearing, but it still seems a little pricey to me.

This is what I posted about and no one had used it.
But I know that PDM as sold 4000+ TSK-1 kits which is for 89-03 legacy/impreza non turbo and now they have TSK-2 90-05 turbo/wrx and TSK-3 is for 06 wrx with the new push clutch. I have installed around 75 of them over the years and only had one go out. It saves someone a lot of money if there case is junk. Plus it makes the clutch pedal so smooth,if someone says it doesn't work they haven't used one........

I would be running one, but since I frankensteined parts from the 02 WRX to my turbo legacy trans there was a clearance issue. I don't recall the guy I sold it to, but he didn't complain about it after I sold it to him.

Default That guy was me...

This thread is back from the grave...

Legacy777, that guy was me. Good product, no complaints here. Like everyone said, it does help with engagement. The shudder in my car went away after i replaced both the flywheel, clutch and snout sleeve. Never have had a shudder since. Replaced the flywheel with the ACT Street Lite and the clutch with the Exedy stock replacement, all purchased from Godspeed.

JUST DO IT...you're already in there, why not take all the steps necessary to ensure it runs properly rather than mickey mouse the job. Just my $0.02

BTW Leggy777, you were a pleasure to deal with. Straight forward sale and prompt shipping, thanks for not giving me any headaches. The clutch job alone was enough.
