    Clutch is shot.. Philly area shops?

    Hey all. So the clutch in my '02 is on its last legs. Im not really suprised since it has had multiple drivers and and has been in the car for 5 years. So its time for a replacement. I know to stick with the stock clutch, cause Im not replacing my trans.. but where to take it?

    Im not doing a dealer, their prices are outragious. I remember seeing a shop that had great prices for the clutch install, but I cant remember the name.

    Can anyone help me out with reccomendations? Unfortunatly money is tight at the moment so that is the main concern.

    Thanks for all the suggestions gang. Ended up with a Exedy OEM Replacement and ACT Streetlight flywheel, being done by street solutions as soon as the parts are delivered.

    I will of course post some vendor reviews for the parts as well as for street solutions once the job is complete!

    They don't have an automated system, thats odd.

    Good looking out Tristan. Jon was great, and had a fantastic turn around time. I dropped the car off after work one night, and he had it done the next day after I got out of work. i've been driving the car for a few days now, and it seems like everything is perfect. I also had Jon do my front pads while he had the car.

    For everyone else, I got my hawks pads from King of Parts, and the Act flywheel and Exedy OEM cluck from Import Image. They were great to deal with, and my parts shipped same day, and the cheapest prices I could find.
