    It may not have been the dealerships choice..... I was a Chrysler tech for 15 years and Chrysler makes you fill out a cost sheet othe trans parts and labor and it has to be over 70% of the cost of the trans....

    Transmission replaced and all is well. Smooth consistent shifts

    I still get a little of that vibration in the clutch pedal feel, but I have a feeling that is a break in thing; I'll follow up with in after a while.

    I guess that is possible I just don't see how that wasn't over 70%. Either way glad to hear the OP's problems have been solved!

    They said the parts were like 2-3000 and the new transmission was 5000.

    Hmmm, now you're making me nervous. My car is in the shop right now for similar reasons (cc was grinding going into 3rd, they started with replacing some worn rear bushings, then finally dropped the trans). I don't know what all they had to replace, but the tech sent me pics one day of what he said was a gear that was rounded in areas where it was supposed to be sharp. I couldn't really tell anything from the pics he sent me. Anyways I had them replace all the rear bushings with revshift reds, the engine mounts were shot so they got replaced with revshift blues, and while the trans was down I had them install a monster stage 2 and remote bleeder. I'm hoping to pick it up tomorrow, I'll be sure to give it a thorough shake down over the next week as I go on vacation on friday.

    Seems we have the same setup going on now; I don't have my RevShift Blue motor mounts in yet though. Currently have new stock motor mounts in from last year. Might have to sit in your car and see how it feels if I want to take the time to pull my good stock mounts off =)

    If you get vibration in the clutch pedal, that probably means that your pressure plate bolts aren't torqued equally. Some of the fingers that the slave throw-out bearing depress are probably folded outward a little further than the others.

    If you lightly apply pressure to the clutch pedal, does the vibration get significantly worse? If so, then what I said above is the problem.

    It is only for a brief moment when you first press the pedal at usually mid to higher RPM's. I'll keep that in mind though.

    I noticed that if I am cruising at constant speed and press the clutch in half way to let it slip a little the vibration is constant; but it is only at the halfway point.

    Re: Home from Transmission Repairs + New Monster Clutch - Have a few concerns.

    I have a similar vibration in my clutch, but I see from the other thread that it's probably not much to worry about. Like with Sevillian its minor and only on initial clutch application. On another note I think I'd recommend that anyone else doing bushings go with the blue for the differential bushing. I went with the read and damn if I don't have to turn up the radio to drown out my diff noise now.
