I just did this last month too. I also bought the pins too. See below. I got my parts from Toyota E Parts Store. I believe that was the cheapest I could find.Ok, just to confirm a discrepancy, I bought 3 pins when I did this job on my car a little under a month ago, and they did turn out to be the proper number from Lexus for the flywheel dowels. That part number is:
90250-08054, need a quantity of 3 to do the job.
So far, at 1200 miles, the clutch has been fantastic. I did the clutch damper delete as well, so, the pedal had a softer, yet more responsive feel. Being stock except for this clutch and the exhaust, the difference in feel was pretty astounding.
Interesting that you all didn't have any change in sound like me....again, mine is very subtle, and actually sounds great IMO. I did this mod along with the Figs clutch dampener delete, and I am blown away by the difference! I always had a hard time rev-matching in the past...now it's easier than in any car I've owned. If anyone is considering this mod...just do itCan't attest to a difference in sound; I put an OBX header on at the same time, lol. So, the car definitely sounded different without 150k miles of dirty cats restricting the flow. The only noise my clutch assembly makes is that bastard throwout fork singing in neutral with the clutch pedal up. Should have put a throttle return spring on it like some of the earlier posts recommended, but...shoulda, woulda, coulda.
AH.. Thanks! I totally looked over your post...Hey sennet,
Read my post near the top of page. I posted my invoice. Out the door was like $570. no tax, all new OEM parts.
I got 5000 miles on my set up and it's alllllllll good still. I don't even get that chirping that everyone's complaining about (knock on wood)
I read this entire thread except this last page, and decided to use this store. The entire time thinking, "man this site looks so damn sketchy," and almost didn't order it. I'm glad you posted this lol. Order placed. Some of the parts have gone up in price, still the cheapest site, and the code still works.
I just used a return spring to pull on the arm of the slave cylinder. it's mentioned somewhere in this thread. took a couple attempts to get the tension right, but i haven't heard it since (last summer or something). i could only hear it while in neutral at idle also, not sure if that's the case for you.went the Toyota E Parts Store route as posted above. parts came in a reasonable time. everything worked out. so i'll vouch for them as well. that and their price + 10% beats all of the dealers near me even with the shipping cost. so its no brainer for me esp for OEM parts.
regarding the chirp... mine developed 2 months after install and its a little embarrassing because everyone knows i do my own work ha. i only replaced the slave rod with the supra TT one. should i replace the whole slave cylinder? i know another member made their own 82mm rod as well; but as of now, i cheat and ride the clutch ever so slightly to avoid the chirp which slave cylinder did you guys go with? supra na? or just a new is300 w/ tt rod?
ahhh i did read that now that you mention it. i just didnt recall it since i read it before i did the install. yeah it only chirps in neutral at idle. thanks man!I just used a return spring to pull on the arm of the slave cylinder. it's mentioned somewhere in this thread. took a couple attempts to get the tension right, but i haven't heard it since (last summer or something). i could only hear it while in neutral at idle also, not sure if that's the case for you.
