    Review & Installation Video

    What’s up everyone, Justin from AmericanMuscle.com, here with a cure to that mushy clutch pedal, and that sticky clutch cable on your ride. I’m talking about this adjustable clutch kit for all 96-04 Mustangs. Simply put, this kit is going to make your car shift like new again by replacing and reinforcing some of the crucial components responsible for getting your car into gear properly and smoothly. The first and most obvious part of this kit is the brand new fully adjustable clutch cable which replaces your old gummed up factory cable. Now over time your clutch cable picks up all kinds of dirt and grime, making for inconsistent pedal feel. As you can see this new cable slides easily, and without any effort whatsoever, and when paired with other kit components, makes for a smooth pedal feel and full adjustability. The adjustability I’m talking about is made possible thanks to this firewall adjuster. This part makes life a whole lot easier when it comes to adjusting your clutch, thanks to the fact that you don’t have to crawl under your car anymore to do so. The new clutch cable will run through this piece mounted on your firewall and simply by turning this knob you can adjust the length of your clutch cable. Now this will also give you much more precise control over your clutch pedal engagement point to better suit your style of driving. The star of this kit without a doubt is the Billet aluminum double hook clutch quadrant. Your clutch cable runs through this little piece bearing the brunt of all those hard shifts. Now your stock quadrant is made from cheap plastic which can flex or even break causing mis-shifts especially when using heavier duty clutches and pressure plates. This Billet aluminum piece totally eliminates the cheap plastic, and is designed to hold up to even the hardest shifts. Installing this kit requires you to remove your factory clutch quadrant and cable, although it’s nothing more complicated than removing a few bolts and snaking some cables, you do have to crawl underneath your car making it somewhat of a time consuming install that should take you a couple of hours. Now we here at AmericanMuscle always recommend installing this kit especially when using aftermarket clutches. It’s a simple peace of mind that will make your life a whole lot easier, trust me. If you’re experiencing a mushy clutch pedal, mis-shifts or an overall poor shifting experience, then this clutch adjuster kit for your 96-04 Mustang will have your car shifting like new all over again.

    Firewall Adjuster. The new Set-screw keeps the cable in place with no need for re-adjustment. This SR Performance firewall mounted clutch adjuster lets you adjust clutch engagement without having to crawl under the car. Just turn the adjuster knob on the firewall and you're done. This Firewall Adjuster is designed with a bigger adjustment range than stock, plus a handy locking tab so you can adjust it with just one hand!

    Adjustable Cable Replace your old, sticky, gummed-up cable with a smooth sliding adjustable clutch cable. A new cable can do wonders for clutch feel and pedal effort. When used with an Aluminum Quadrant, clutch engagement and pedal height can be adjusted by turning a nut at the end of the cable.

    Double Hook Clutch Quadrant. The factory plastic self-adjusting quadrant is fine for stock clutches, but when you add a heavy duty clutch or some fast power-shifts, it starts to bend. This unwanted flex causes inconsistent clutch engagement and missed shifts at best, plus worn synchronizers and a broken quadrant at worst. Replace that weak plastic clutch quadrant with a super strong SR Performance billet aluminum "Double Hook" quadrant. The strong flex free billet quadrant design stands up to the hardest shifts.

    Mine squeaks. It looks like it's the cable rubbing the cable adjuster coming out of the dash. I tried greasing it but it really looks like it needs the angle corrected. Any installation tips? Thanks!

    • We would suggest making sure that all the connections were secure especially the bottom end between the k‐member and the oil pan and then up to the firewall. If after checking you were still experiencing a squeaking sound please feel free to contact us directly for customer support at 1-877-887-1105, or by chatting in with us! We would be glad to help troubleshoot this with you here. We would also suggest possibly having a service professional take a look into this to make sure everything was installed properly and that the part was in good condition.

      98 Mustang Cobra clutch cable

      Install was easy enough, the new cable is larger in diameter.. During use I can feel the cable moving through the housing. Time will tell if this gets more pronounced.

      Universal kit.

      Overall the individual part seem high quality. When I installed this kit the adjustable cable was a bit longer then my original one. The adjustable end was to big to fit into my clutch fork. The bracket on the cable was also different and unusable so the cable is currently free to flop around under the hood. I tried to use my old bracket but it caused the cable to bind a little. The firewall adjuster came with self tapping screws that were so small they were also unusable. I do have the kit installed but it didn’t go smoothly.

      Read reviews and made the jump to purchase. Perfect fit and very easy install. My clutch never felt so smooth! Goes into gear easily now and no more slop. Great upgrade.

      Cable is no good unless you like stiffness

      The adjuster and quadrant work great but the cable feels like your driving a semi truck, I work on a farm and the tractors clutches were lighter than my cars and that’s unacceptable to me I’d recommend steeda or anything but SandR

      Fantastic!

      I bought this because after driving for a big my shifts would begin to feel a touch notchy. This kit completely changed the way my clutch engages. It is now sizably more smooth than the factory engagement. A word to the wise; the attach the mounting bolt for the clutch cable to the frame before you do anything else. I completely attached the cable; got it all wired up; and realized that I couldn't bend it into location ... so I had to completely undo it; attach the bolt; and reconnect it. Also, file the nubs. A big thanks to those that called it out in their reviews; I was starting to think I was losing my mind during the install.

      good bang for your buck

      I installed the SR Performance clutch cable, quadrant and fire wall adjuster in about 45min start to finish.my reason was bc my clutch pedal was notchy throughout the throw of the pedal. I wasn't 100 sure if this was my issue but having 2 two others the both eventually had issues witht he quadrant and cable, it was an upgrade i plans on doing anyways and it fixed my issue 100 my clutch is now silky smooth all the way through. i did run into three minor issues. the first one was the end of the cable not fitting into the firewall adjuster till I called and was told to shave the 3 nubs off the end of the cable that hold the spacer that is used when not installing the fire wall adjuster. while its not a huge issue , the instructions should state this as it comes as a kit and it was frustrating after trying to jam the end into the adjuster for 10 min only to find out i have to shave my brand new cable. again not a big issue just bought i would save the rest front the aggravation. the second one which I think is just a poor design is where the lock down screw is located. in some pictures on the sight it looks like there is plenty of room to get to it but the only way to access it is a small allen key and small turns at a time. It should have been located on the bottom side so it could easily be accessed and turned. again not a big deal as once its set your good but just a thought. the last issue again was a minor issue but something that could easily be changed. the original cable can be slid up and out of the small hole to lock the two nuts together and then put back through the large hole and slid back down into the smaller hole where the cable rests in. this cable was to large to slide down the slot in the shift form to the smaller hole so i had to push the shift fork and wedge a pry back in the bell housing while i locked the two nuts together. not a huge issue but another poor design . I would recommend having slightly larger screws as the small ones that come with it easy strip and then do not get tight if the hole is a tad to big. also getting your hands in there to turn the screw heads is nearly impossible if you have large hands like i do so i put a slightly bigger screw with a 10mm head on it so i could use my magnetic socket and stop dropping the screws. you could also use some dum dum or something sticky to keep the screw secure in the socket while you locate the hole. over all the parts are very good quality and makes the clutch feel 100x better then factory on top of being able to fine tune where your clutch engages. im not sure if I am the only one who ran into these issues or if its just this specific setup but again everything is high quality and work great together. im giving this product a 5 star ratting because im rating it on its performance and quality and not the little minor issues I ran into, after all it is aftermarket and these are the kinds of things you run into.

      Adjustable clutch cable

      With the metal quadrant I no longer have to adjust to my clutch every time the temperature changes. It's definitely improved my shifting feel and has given me the power to adjust my clutch to my driving

      This kit installs super easy and works even better, I have zero complaints. The firewall adjuster is amazingly easy to use, much better than back in the day when you had to jack the car up and adjust the cable at the fork!

      Works well

      I really like this kit for its simplicity and ease of install. However when installing i found that i could not bolt the cable back to the inner fender anymore without making the pedal feel far too tight. Leaving it unbolted solved this problem and the kit has performed well for over a year now.
