    So the McLeod unit that we have here today is going to be a great option for the Mustang owner out there that's in the process of doing a clutch and flywheel, and needs to replace their factory throwout bearing. I say this because, if you're doing a clutch and flywheel, you really should just do the slave at the same time, because everything is going to be wide open. It'd be a shame to tear everything back out a few thousand miles later, just to replace the part you could've hit from the get-go. Now, if you were to keep your original bearing in there, you're risking running into issues with your clutch engaging, shifting gears, and wearing out your new clutch quickly. In my opinion, it's really just not worth the risk. But despite its size, I am going to be giving this a full three out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter here, and about a four-hour job. I'll have a little bit more information on that coming up for you later. So unlike a lot of the other more pricier options out there, this is a direct OE replacement, meaning there's no adjustability or features, and meaning that it'll come along with a lighter price tag and no guesswork when it comes time to throwing it in. So we explain why you should pick this up when you're doing your clutch, but factory throwout bearings can go out on their own too. Some symptoms are going to be grinding between shifts, rattling underneath the box, whining or squeaking when you're in gear, with the clutch out, or at idle, or just a sloppy pedal feel. Now, if this sounds like your Mustang right now, it's definitely time to look at replacing your clutch and bearing. This direct-fit, OE replacement features a factory-style wire clip connector and is made to the original factory specs, with premium quality rubber components for compatibility with all DOT 3 and 4 fluids. Now, it's worth pointing out that this is designed to work with any McLeod unit, but it will work with any other brand or a stock clutch. But in terms of the pricing here, expect to be spending just over $100, which is a small price to pay to guarantee that you're getting direct engagement and disengagement out of hard driving with any aftermarket clutch. Now, if you're doing a clutch job and need an adjustable throwout bearing and slave cylinder, McLeod does have one. But it will cost around $400. The differences aside from the adjustability will be the construction, where that unit is going to be anodized. So switching gears to the installation, you're looking at an involved three out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter here, and easily a four-hour job. Now, this is honestly something I would take to a shop to get installed, given the amount of labor that's involved here. There's really no shame in having the pros do the work to ensure that you're not going to run into any issues down the road. But the majority of the work is really going to be dropping your trans, and then swapping everything over. So that's going to wrap up my quick review of McLeod's stock-style hydraulic throwout bearing, that can be found right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Dependability. Whether your Mustang is a daily driver, a beast on the track or screams down the drag strip, you depend on you car to shift smoothly at all times. This process requires your throwout bearing to function correctly. If you're experiencing issues, you should replace your stock throwout bearing with this McLeod Stock Style Hydraulic Throwout Bearing.

    Direct Replacement. This Stock Style Hydraulic Throwout Bearing features a factory style wire-clip connector that makes it a direct fit OE replacement of your factory throwout bearing. McLeod constructs their Throwout Bearing to the original factory specifications with premium quality rubber components to be compatible with all DOT 3 and 4 Brake Fluids.

    Application. This McLeod Stock Style Hydraulic Throwout Bearing is designed to fit the 2005-2017 GT, 2005-2012 V6 and 2007-2009 Shelby GT500 Mustangs.

    awesome throwout.

    if someone says all it does is move the clutch in and out, they forgot to tell you that the stock one can't even be felt let alone travel the distance needed. Great item

    Since it reads stock style, would this work with any clutch combo? Like an Exedy or Spec?

    Hi - it says this part is compatible with DOT 3 and 4 - I run DOT 5.1 for track performance. Will that work with this? Thanks!

    • Since the 2013 Boss 302 runs the same transmission as the GT model, this will fit a Boss 302.

    Why is the compatibility not listed for the 2015 Ecoboost mustang? I used a stock 2015 GT throw out bearing in my 2015 Ecoboost without issue. Thanks.

      Better than stock throwout!

      I replaced this while I changed out clutch and flywheel, all currently have 300 miles on them so far without any chatter. Smooth shifts, going up or down in shifts, honestly seems to me about the same as stock except can tell clutch has a greater bite on flywheel. You can really tell this starting off in 1st gear. I have a whipple charger and is really hard to not spin tires on 1st, this is being as conservative as possible. Cannot wait for my full 500 miles being up to really open up and see how well she goes with everything. Best regards for all seeking a better performer.

      Smooth as a baby's bottom

      Quality is great besides the the line being slightly long. I simply swapped it out with the oem line from my outgoing assembly. Feels great with the Steeda 90lb helper spring. Smooth are crisp and smooth. Paired with an OEM Boss clutch assembly it feels as if I have a GT350. Thats how smooth and seamless the engagement is. Thanks AM for the quick shipping!!! Tranny swap was a 1st time go!

      Great product

      I recently purchase one of these. It works great and has a nice fit. My only issue was the line on it. I couldn't get to fit properly. The bend on it had to be off. I ended up using my stock line. That solved the problem.

      Throw out. Bearing

      The fitting on the end of the steel line is not quite the same as the stock one there fore the hose clip would not go into place. Had to use steel line from the old bearing other wise seems like a good product.
