New clutch plate and springs 5 Months ago  
So please forgive me I know this has been asked before but I'm new to this so I have a couple questions

I have a 2006 1700 Silverado clutch is slipping and after reading the comments through the site it sounds like it is most likely my springs plate not the friction plates. I have heard Barnett springs and plate mentioned several times is it pretty much a consensus that those are the best. My engine is completely stock. and for just everyday riding are the heavy duty springs necessary? I rarely ride real hard.

Also is there a place on this or any site that might have a video to watch, I'm confident in my ability I just figure it wouldn't hurt to check it out.

Thank you in advance.

What kind of oil are you running in it? How many miles on it? Wrong oil can cause slippage.

Here is a YouTube video of it.

I did mine, it was not hard at all, the worst thing was removing the old gasket.

Good luck and ride safe.

Heavy springs are not necessary for good tight lockup with a stock motor.

Just Google or search Ebay for the EBC Roadstar Clutch Spring. It's about $45 and will do that trick. You will need a new gasket as well.

Many who yearn for the exceptional find solace in complacency.

Use an inch pound torque wrench for reassembly. Don't join the broken clutch basket crowd.

If you have access to a small die grinder, use a medium Rolox disc, and you can buzz any remaining gasket material with no difficulty whatsoever... without nicking up the mating surfaces.

Also, use a gasket maker material, follow the directions, and you don't even need to buy a new gasket.

I bought the EBC off eBay for some $41 or $42. It works great and is 20% stronger.

So, Rolox to save time, and NOT nick up the metal surfaces. Use an inch pound torque wrench, no need for a gasket, if you use a gasket maker material.

It's a relatively easy 2 hour job... the re-installing of the throwout rod in the clutch, back into the clutch cover is probably the trickiest, or most careful part.

I just did mine maybe 2 or 3 weeks ago.
