I'm getting ready to buy a south bend clutch and I've found that some sites say to get an upgraded clutch fork on late 99/00 model trucks. I can't find any info in a search that tells me what is upgraded, why it needs it, if it's necessary, etc. Anybody have any insight?

They have a tendency to snap from the added strength of the pressure plate. The upgraded ones are designed to handle the stress.

Thanks. They aren't part of the standard kit though so I assume it's a rare problem?

Its a design defect...I believe that the design was changed for the '01 trucks (at least I hope so cuz I own an 01 with the 6 speed)...guess I'll find out down the road when I do my southbend clutch.

I had to buy my clutch fork from the dealer. I am sure that you can get them through SB as well. You will see the difference in them when you get the new one. It is substantial. I'm still kind of angry they never put out a recall on the old ones.
