Default "Thump" and hard to get in gear ? clutch?

Like the title says, clutch is worn out could this be the reason its doing this? having a real hard time shifting in any gear. Any help would be great.

I had a similar issue with my setup. Fix was stiffer bushings to remove excessive driveline "play" which caused teh shifting to be a lot more "forced" due to pitch angles.

Sorry to highjack, but what is the shift fork and what purpose does it serve. My 2002 tranny locked up(can't get into ANY gear) last night on the way home from work. It got stuck once before while still in warranty but it freed itself, and the dealer couldn't reproduce the problem. Could I have the same problem.

Are you sure it's not the rear diff clunk? Where does the noise come from? If it's from the rear during hard fast shifts at high RPMs, and sounds like a sonic boom in the trunk then that would be the rear diff clunk, and rear diff bushings can solve that. Whiteline and Kartboy have ones that go on the outriggers for the subframe, and Turn In Concepts has ones that go in the mount.

No, its def. the transmission I know what clunk you speak of though. Just found out that the pilot bearing in my transmission was bad, pretty much gone. This could be the cause for the thump?
