pretty sure you need to buy the whole assembly, never heard of anyone trying
to just replace the bearing by itself.

i purchased a new slave cylinder from rockauto a couple of years ago and it's
been working great, good luck with the project.

Get a new stock TOB. Just curious, why are you running the Ram setup?

well i contacted ram and they said i can just replace the bearing , well my clutch went out a while ago so i replaced everything i could with a stronger set up so it wouldnt break or at least last me longer haha , usually if a stock part breaks in my car i replace it with a better aftermarket version

The OEM slave/throwout is the most reliable setup.

stock setup is best in this situation, I had a McLeod TOB and had issue's but the issue's ended up being clutch related.

A good thing to remember, aftermarket isn't always the better product!

It's often assumed that aftermarket is better, and it usually is. But its usually the important stuff that isn't. Aftermarket sensors often don't work as well as the oem sensors do, and have the tendancy to fail. As long as you do a little bit of research you can find the right product!!
