Clutch Pivot clip replacement

Replaced the bushing last week.. new one broke today.

Any fix for this besides Rage Tek... I don't want to support them and I don't want to wait weeks for it to come in.

Sucks having to replace them once a week.. OEM clutch and I've been just DDing it as my clutch slips in boost.

I also would like to see about these. I know MPx and Rage make/made then. I don't want to be forced to replace with a stocker time after time.

You could measure the inside diameter of the pedal adjuster and the outside diameter of the pedal pivot stud and try to make a brass bushing. That was the route I was planning on taking before I found out about the billet piece from MPx. I got one just before they were discontinued.

What is "FAST"?

I believe MODERN stopped selling them because people were breaking MC parts due to binding of the brass bushing and the pedal pivot stud. I recognized an increase in friction so I greased the bushing. "Problem" solved. It was a common sense solution. Just my 2 cents.

Measure with a digital caliper. If you have the proper sized drill bit, that may work.

How is it that you are breaking them once per week with the OEM clutch? I had 100K+ on my original one before the bushing wore out.

Now I have the Rage one, which I got 2 years ago. Took a few weeks to get but well worth the wait. NEVER EVER EVER EVER had any issues with it whatsoever and have driven at least 30-40K miles on it since then.

I have heard of people calling MP and BEGGING them to sell one and they might do it if you sign a waiver.

Those who claim to be smart and right all the time are often dumb and wrong.

Did you replace it with an OEM or aftermarket bushing? The folks in this thread didn't have too much luck with the aftermarket ones. My factory bushing lasted 150,000+ miles before a nincompoop at a car wash drove my car and broke it. It was replaced with an OEM bushing and I have accrued ~30,000 miles since then without any issues.

I went to Lowes and got a Nylon bushing, 2 washers and a E clip and fixed mine.

My factory bushing lasted around 110,000 miles until it gave out, with me being the nincompoop

Fortunately I had some wire ties and rigged the pivot arm tight with the pedal, and drove it like that with no problems until my upgraded pivot arm arrived from RageTek a month later Took forever to get the piece but I've had it on there for 2 years and 30K miles with no issues.

As SRT-4 owners, it's a natural instinct to have cable ties on you at all times. LOL. After the dude at the car wash broke my bushing, I cable tied mine also and drove it from Sacramento back home to Atlanta like that.
