Manual Transmission - good idea to change the mount and bearing?
09-18-2004, 09:38 AM
I have a 98 with 40K... I plan on putting in the Stage 3 clutch from Spec, steel flywheel, and the master and slave, along with the drill mod this weekend...
Do I need to/would it be smart to change the Pilot bearing at this time?
What about replacing the Transmission mount with a 1LE mount from GM?

I would definatley replace the pilot bearing. It goes bad your pulling the trans agian.
The mount , you can put on any time now or later.

oh yeah, replace them both while your in there, save you time and $ down the road. just make sure you have a nice slide hammer or maybe even a chisel for that pilot bearing

Replace the pilot bearing for sure. You can use a slide hammer from Autozone for free. They will give you a 100% refund when you return it.
You will get more road vibration with the 1LE mount, but it will firm up your ride.

I picked up the bushing today at the dealership, they only carried the stock tranny mount...
"1LE" what does that stand for anyway? Is this mount obtainable at the dealership or do I need to be looking at the sponsors?
