The BEST

I believe that this is the best throwout bearing to use as a replacement. Releases better and just seems to last longer than other aftermarket brands!

Should i get this throwout bearing or stick with the clutch kit one? I was checking out the Exedy Mach 600 Stage 4 Clutch kit and my question to you is should I buy the ford racing performance throwout bearing or stick with the one provided in the Exedy Mach 600 stage 4 clutch kit? What is your recommendation?

CRC81 Year: 2004 Model: GT

  • I would and did opt for the Ford Racing throwout bearing over the bearing provided with my Exedy stage 2 clutch kit. It is a good amount of work to get to this part, so be sure to get the best parts for the job so the job doesn't have to be done again, at least until the clutch wears out again.

Will this fix squeaking? I have read on the Internet, that squeaking throw out bearings are common on mustangs. I had my clutch replaced 2 months ago, and it keeps squeaking! It's been changed twice since then, and it won't go away. Will replacing it with this throw out bearing stop the squeaking?

V6 Mustang I have heard of people using a Ford Racing throwout bearing in their V6 mustangs. Does anybody know for sure if this will work in a T5 transmission?

BigPimpinInAmerica Year: 2004 Model: V6

  • This will work with your transmission, Hope your squeaking stops.

    Ford Racing, cant go wrong

    This is the first part to wear in the clutch system. While I was doing it wanted to put the best part in I could. The factory cable system does not seem to allow for the release bearing to fully release. I installed the adjustable clutch cable and quadrant. The pedal was still bouncing from the bearing just touching the clutch. I installed a bracket with a spring to pull the release bearing completely away from the clutch. Now the bearing will last as long as the clutch. Previously the bearing would just touch and would be spinning for no reason. The spring I installed took care of the clutch pedal bouncing around due to the release bearing touching the clutch. Simple, yet very effective!

    Super high quality bearing

    I changed out the clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, and pilot bearing that came in a clutch kit. Two months later the clutch release bearing came apart, so I had to pull the transmission again to replace it. From now on, I will go with the ford racing bearing to ensure that it doesn't happen to me again.

    No more chatter!

    I installed a SPEC clutch in my Bullitt last May and it's now October and the spec TOB was squealing already. Ordered this and now it's perfect. Clutch engaged smoother than before with no extra spinning. Also put a new ford racing pilot bearing in as well. Great product!

    GREAT product a "Must Buy"

    I have a 2003 Mustang GT, recently bought the Spec stage 2+ clutch from AM, and purchased the Ford Racing Throwout Bearing for it. I couldnt be happier with the Gear Engagement, and how well it handles my 435Horsepower. Ford Racing TB is one of the best on the market in my book, no noise or grinding, and i will buy this again.

    Best throwout bearing!

    I use this throwout bearing every time I replace my clutch. It is a very well built part and seems to last a lot longer than the ones that come with most clutch kits. I would highly recommend using one of these if you are changing out your clutch as added insurance.

    FRPP Throwout Bearing

    The best throwout bearing on the market. I have worked with many throwout bearings and this is by far the best one out there. I recommend this for anyone who is replacing their clutch. Buy it, trust me, you won't regret it.
