Getting the scoggin dickey kit, LS7 clutch kit with the Ram aluminum flywheel. Should I buy a stock slave and use the spacer? Or get the LS7 slave cylinder?

If your gonna do more power I would suggest getting something other then the ls7 personally.
OEM clutches hold up great(still on my stocker), but if your doing it you may as well be done with it.
Remember that the LS7 holds well in the ZO6 because its 800lbs lighter as well. Just something to think about.

I recommend changing the slave just about any time you have the trans out. I cheaped out a few times with out changing the slave and it has bit my ass more than once.
Research shows that the T56 throw out bearings don't last very long. Mine is crap right now and awaiting a clutch purchase for replacement. The throw out bearing is part of the slave cylinder. Why not replace it while your there. It won't be fun tearing all that sh1t back apart for a bad slave or throwout bearing. Time is money man!

Ummm... I am replacing it all. That's the purpose of this thread. Should I buy the stock unit and run the spacer or just put a LS7 in it.

The question is: do you want to pay $60 or $600?

^^^^No not really. He IS REPLACING the slave. A stock slave is over 300 bones and then you throw in a spacer on top of that and then you need longer bolts as well. Why not get an LS7 slave for way less than 200 and reuse your bolts and not worry about a spacer?
LS7 seems the most logical way to go. As far as durability goes, I have had both the stock and the LS7 fail twice so one is about as good as the other. Currently running the LS7 with my Exedy twin disk and have had zero problems.

Get the LS7 unit if you are replacing either way. Kind of a no brainer.
