Default To-Do List for my 2001 2.5RS - Pointers?

So she just turned over 100K.

I need a new clutch, the one that is in there is just a crappy clutch and shudders like no one's business. I'd like to go ahead and get a new flywheel and replace whatever else should be done while the tranny is out. I'd like to keep the clutch and flywheel OEM. What else usually gets changed out with a clutch job? I've got a new slave and line.

I've got a torn boot on my front, passenger side half shaft, so I'm going to go ahead and replace the half shaft. The unfortunate thing about this is that it's flung that heavy grease onto the cat and it stinks up to high heaven once heated up. I cleaned it off well with engine cleaner, but it's under the heat shield, and a never ending battle.

I need to replace the wobble joint in the trans linkage. I have the parts for this.

I need to do the timing belt. I've heard people recommend doing the water pump at this time as well. Anything else that is normally done?

I'd also like to upgrade to stainless lines on the brakes.

Everything else is great, 100K and running strong. The car just needs these few maintenance items. I'd like to be able to call someone up and order the parts, can you guys recommend a good vendor for all of the above needed parts?

Thanks all.

Wow the 89 Civic is fast


I would go with a OEM Exedy clutch and make sure to put one of these in when you do it, this will fix the shuttering



I'll add more when I have more time

The guys at turn in concepts have the tranny linkage part but be preparedto curse like a sailor! When I replaced mine I also put in a Grp n tranny mount, I'd highly recomend it if you don't have one yet.
