The factory LSJ throwout bearing bleeds off pressure when you press in the clutch. This upgraded throwout bearing will not bleed off pressure resulting in more accurate shifting, less grinding of the gears, quicker shifts, longer trans life. This is an upgrade that every LSJ car should have, aftermarket clutch or stock.
This is a brand new OEM dealership throw out bearing being sold with no warranty. If your clutch causes the T.O.B. (throw out bearing) to overextend it will ruin this part, so verify your pressure plates install height before installation.
This is an OEM LNF throw out bearing.
