I had the same problem so I went ahead and bought a clutch kit to just swap it all out since I was already tearing it down.

I went with a zoom clutch from summit racing. I have a buddy running high 11s in his 5speed with the exact same clutch.

Paid about 130 for it....t/o bearing and all

the through-out bearing is the one that the clutch fork rests on right? well i just did my clutch and changed it all out. i had some whistiling coming from the clutch area too but i thought mine was more of the piolet bearing, when i did pull it all out i noticed tho that both bearings were goin bad, the through out bearing had some play and the piolet bearing broke on the process of getting it out. and as far as i know there is no kit

If your clutch and pressure plate are new then leave them on there. You can order a TO bearing from Atomic Performance - TA Performance, Pro 5.0, SCT, C&L, JLT Cold Air Give them a call and ask for Jeff Z. The centerforce piece is 34.95, free shipping, and will be to your house within a day or two. You'll have to pull the exhaust, driveshaft, tranny mount, and finally the tranny. There's nothing you can really do to "beef" up your tranny unless you have it rebuilt. You could add an aluminum flywheel if you've got the money but it isn't necessary. Good luck!

Sounds like a throw-out bearing to me. I had mine whining and i had plans to go to the track with my bike but my bike broke so i took my mustang with plans to break it because it was pissing me off. sure enough, second run when i shifted into second i heard a lot of clanking and my throw-out bearing ended up at the bottom of my bellhousing. I'm sure thats not something that you want. I had to drive home from the track in 5th gear not fun.

Mods:Underdrive Pulleys, Ram Air w/ K&N Filter, Rebuilt T-5, 3.73s, High Flow H-Pipe, Energy Suspension Poly Motor and Tranny Mounts.

Soon: Un= headers, Centerforce Clutch, Steeda Tri-Ax Fidanza Alumnum FW, BBK 75mm TB, EGR Elim.

I've got the same problem. I've had the car 2 months and the guy before me just put a new t/o bearing in, but the shaft it rides on is scored, so that's making the noise. So make sure to check the shaft too.

the shaft that you speak of is called a bearing retainer. You can buy them from summit or jegs for around 40 bucks. Make sure you get the one for 94/95's because they are 5/8 inch longer than fox bearing retainers.
