    Time to replace my clutch, need general advise.

    So I dont ride my clutch, and I don't drive like crazy. I had to replace my stock clutch and flywheel at 60k which was odd, but I figured that since I learned how to drive MT in this car, that I just wore it out early. I replaced it (actually subaru did it) with an exedy st 1 and ACT street light flywheel. The combination was really disappointing for me, I hardly noticed a difference in rev with the flywheel and the clutch never felt like it engaged well, it didn't have the same grab as the stock clutch. It chattered like hell when engaging and was loud on deceleration. Now at 115k its gone bad. Need a new clutch. Im going back to stock. I wonder if when I get in there and find that the old flywheel looks good if I can just leave it in there? Im ordering both components just in case, I cant have the car down for more than a weekend. This is my first go at replacing a clutch myself, wondering if anyone has any tips? Also are there any small components that I should upgrade while i'm in there? Like maybe tranny mounts or shift components? Stuff to make driving more responsive/fun? Im giving myself the entire weekend to do it, hopefully two days will be enough time. Im going on DIYs from around the web (tranny removal method, not engine pull method) and looking for any advise. College kid trying to save money on labor. Actually I have extensive experience with maintaining helicopters, but ive just never done a WRX tranny. Thanks for all the help.

    You should just be able to get some new ones at a local auto parts store.
