Default New Clutch ?

My throw out bearing is bad so i figured i would just replace the clutch since i just bought the car from a used dealer and have no idea what the guy before me did to it. Anyway i was going to do this before i moved to N.C. cuz i had access to a shop, but didnt get to it. Now that i've moved i was wondering if there is anyway i can do it on my own since im a student and have no money, plus i like doing all my own work. I know that having a trans jack is best but I have a floor jack and jack stands for a start. let me know what to do or what to get thanks!

Welcome to Gods Country. Where are you in NC? T-5 only weighs like 75 lbs. Can be done without a jack if necessary.

I did it without a jack but laying on your back need some shoulder strength. Check your flywheel, it may need machined or replaced if it is scored.
