    I have a 2007 v6 s197 5speed manual. Everything about it is sloppy, the shifter feels like rubber, it floats and squeaks when accerlerating decelerating and when driving normal, and the clutch slips so that when i upshift and nail the gas the rpms are HIGHER in the next gear until i let off the gas and let it catch up. I plan to do all of the work myself but i need help locating parts and maybe some crash course videos specifically for the clutch replacement. If anyone can possibly help me track down a short throw shifter id go that route but plan B is just new shifter bushings.
    Im looking for:
    Clutch kit no more than 300$
    Full suspention and shifter bushing kit 200$ish
    And if possible a shirt throw shifter $?

    Sorry for the mistakes this is my first post!
    Thanks so much -christian

    Swapping in a new clutch isnt all that bad, it helps to have a lift i recently put in a oe clutch in april. Bought for about 299 ish somewhere around there had everything but a new flywheel.

    Recommend MGW for the short throw.

    Ok sweet! My biggest concern is maneuvering the trans with just a regular jack as i dont have access to a trans jack

    Since i did mine on a lift i couldnt use a jack at all, just some brute strength but if you cant use a lift ive done the same job on other cars with a regular jack.
