    Has anyone had problems with the steeda clutch assist spring loosening up over time? I’ve had mine on for a while and now the clutch pedal is feeling pretty loose at the top of its travel and sometimes doesnt return all the way up... albeit by a very small amount. Like 1/8-1/4”

    Just take the spring off completely. I removed the spring from my 2012 GT and it really wasn't that stiff at all compared to say a Mach 1. And the 2015 clutch pedal feels like a wet noodle in comparison so I imagine with the spring off it will be really light still.

    Mine was loose like that from the time I installed it.

    I removed it and went back to the stock spring.

    What did they say? Manufacturing issue, or something else?

    They were super great and sent me a new spring no questions asked! Unfortunately the new one does it as well.. not as much, but there’s still just a little slack at the top of its travel. I just think 35lbs (or whatever it is) may not be quite enough spring pressure to fully lock it out.

    I have mines for years and it has been loose since first installed. It was about 1/4" loose and now is at 1/2" loose. I tossed the stock spring, but wish Steeda make a slightly heavier (more pounds?) spring to correct this.

    Mine has always been like that too, its just a very tiny amount of wiggle at the top.

    Same here. Noticeable because that OEM spring shot it up locking it out.
