Ok so the problem that I am having is .

I have ordered three clutches from diffrent places and I have recieved an 7 7/8 clutch each time I have called and talked to the service reps and they keep telling me that exedy does not make a 8 7/8 but I know they do because I purchased one about a year ago but the place I bought it from is now gone

Places I have tried:

oem parts .com The parts bin and penisula subaru

The dealer wants the vin# (4 or 5 )that coeinsides with this clutch.
the problem with this is the car had the smaller clutch and now its lifted and swampered so I need that extra bite

any insight would be great
also any oem clutches that you have used with great results Sachs?
thanks in advance

get in touch with the guys at brake and clutch of ashville.

i think this is the right info here, i lost a lot of my contact info when my last hard drive took a dump.


i got the stage two for my rx last year, worked great and held up to the abuse i gave it. never slipped once.:headbang:
