Anybody have a part number for the slave throw out bearing? looks like you have to buy the whole slave assembly.
If that's the case, it's dumb...

I believe they're integral. When I did my clutch, I called Luke for a stock slave/throwout bearing. He knew exactly what to send me. Photobucket changed their their $hit (:banghead:) so you have to click on the pics below to make them bigger.

I have checked my usual sources and find nothing. One remanfacturer of slave cylinders indicates their CTS-V unit "includes a non-removeable release bearing" which is consistent with what Randy says.

Yeah the whole slave assembly I can find. The bearing is removable from the slave, so why they don't sell just the bearing is beyond me.

I think GM used to sell the release bearing separately. For example, Rock Auto lists a separate relaease bearing (SACHS Part # SB1716) for the 2004 Corvette. I cannot determine however, with certainty, that it is the same.

That like looks to me, and in the discription is a pilot bearing, not the throw out bearing.

GM definitely does not sell the bearing separately from the cylinder
as you can see above it's all one assembly (#12587376)
pretty pricey - $310.54 is the best price I can sell them for

GM has been selling this style assembly for at least a decade
most slave cylinders and throw-out bearings are sold this way
(and they're called clutch actuator cylinders ... not sure if that's a PC thing because they don't want to use the word 'slave')

Thanks, but 300+, um no thanks lol. Rock auto has em for 124.00.
Didn't even want to spend that much, considering I just want the bearing.

REALLY!! The job is huge flat rate and a pain! And your going to skimp out with a name brand that practically no one has heard of....

RHINOPAC/WORLD CAR Part # S0427

Includes Non-Removable Release Bearing

$124.79

In my book that's not cool, Honda civics have less expensive release bearings....trade it..

I've had the tranny out more than once. Not trying to cheap out on the part, normally I only buy the best for the job, but ill probably have the tranny out again within two year to rebuild it for the power ill be pushing, and for a new clutch. I don't see the point in replacing the whole slave only todo it again within the next year or two when I pull the transmission again anyway.
I'd throw a 25.00 bearing to get me by, seeing as my slave is about 2 years old, with low mileage.

^^^i just saw your blower thread! Tossing a tranny is no sweat for you! Never mind...skip the Honda, as you were! Good luck

Rhinopac is a well known name for those who redbuild transmissions. Probably just as good as the OEM

I'm sure your right as its your line of work, but, reading dodge and honda forums there are no good reviews. Me, I'm sold on name brand and the old adage of you get what you pay for. Just my 2 cents..

well i've got no direct experience with Rhinopac as we use OEM parts here at the dealership but i have a friend who owns a transmission shop and i've heard him mention them a lot... now that i think about it it's usually when you're trying to find something like this that is expensive oem (or not available separately from a larger kit) and there aren't many/any other options
