Default Throw-out bearing

I currently have a King Cobra clutch in my 95 5.0, and the throw-out bearing is screaming like a banshee. When I go to change it out, do you think I should just go ahead and change out the clutch? And if so, then what clutch do you guys think I should go with?

really depends on how worn it is, any idea how many miles are on it?

I'm not really sure...a lot, lol. I didn't put it in, and I've had it for over 2 years.

Ok, well I've decided to go ahead and replace the clutch, too. I'm considering an Exedy. Does anyone have experience with them?

I've heard some pretty good things about the Ram clutches, too. How long have you had it?

I installed a Zoom on my '86 Capri 15 years ago. Have put about 15,000 hard miles on it including close to 50 1/4 mile passes at the track. No problems and it has light pedal effort compared to a stock clutch.

Ram series clutches are great!! I had the ram had in my car when I first got it and I loved it!!! Many track runs along with daily abuse on the street with powershifting all the time. The only reason I replaced the clutch was b/c of my throw out bearing came apart and messed up my pressure plate.
