ok so i replaced the clutch pilot bearing and throwout bearing clutch cable firewall adjuster and clutch quadrant from steeda. I replaced all this so my clutch would be easier to press down and it has not worked. I mean this thing probably requires around 60-80 pounds of force it seems to press it down. Now i have felt other mustang clutches and none of them feels like mine does.

what is wrong with my car before i sell it i cant have my leg killing me all summer! i want something fun to drive.

take the inspection cover off the trans and make sure the fork is all the way on the pivot ball. If it is, then its just the nature of the clutch and the joys of having a mechanical clutch set up

did you check if it was the pedal itself that is stiff? when the cable is detached from the pedal it should be really easy to move around.

It was like this before the firewall adjuster? When I put in my new clutch quadrant/cable/firewall adjuster, it was INSANE how stiff the clutch was. I could barely press it down. After around 1k miles or so, it loosened up to the stock clutch feel.

Did you put some grease on the shaft where the TOB goes? Do you still have the OEM cable? Any kinks or anything in the clutch cable?
