    no...clutch kits don't come with a new throw-out bearing...if they come with any new bearing it's gonna be the pilot bearing...assuming you get the flywheel also

    Ok.........this is gonna suck......
    I just got my new clutch put in, I don't know much about engines or trannies, but I got a ACT clutch with a street disc. No bearings. I just had it put in my car to replace the stock one that was never replaced......now about a month later this "squeak" that you all are talking about has started inside my car whenever I shift from first to second and somtimes second to third. Can I just get the TOB and get it replaced......or should I just let it go till I replace the clutch, what more damage could this bring, and is this my fault for not letting the mechanics know that I needed the TOB replaced too..........or should they have told unknowing, noob, me.......Thanx for the help

    The clutch you just put in should be fine. If it is still that new. Rule of thumb... always replace pilot, and throw out bearings when doing your clutch and/or flywheel!

    if the TOB stops spinning freely, won't it tear away at the pp springs?

    I've seen it break off the springs before
