He had me at 'dust boot'

I'm sure they both work fine. I'm just using the OEM one until I get my clutch problem fixed.. then I'll swap it again.

Well, looky there! I guess it is a little bit shorter outboard of the mounting holes. Meh. It's fine.

I was wrapping up at work. Now that I took a second look at home on the couch, I can see the difference. Guess I was the one fixated on the dust boot.

So I've been living under a rock and spent the last 5 years driving my car with a stock unadjusted clutch...


Until I found this thread when I started looking for reasons why my clutch was squeaking recently (fork needed to be greased)


After reading the original post in this thread I recalled how all of my non brz/frs-owning friends that had driven my car always complained about how awful the clutch was. I immediately ordered an OEM Subaru 3/4" clutch slave cylinder and stainless clutch line.

I installed the parts, flushed the fluid and bled all the air out, and also adjusted my clutch pedal closer to the floor and I now have an amazing clutch experience. I can finally shift smoothly while feeling whats going on through the pedal. It's soooooooooooo worth doing. Just do it already. Even if you've spent 5 years and 46,000 miles driving on the stock setup like me lmao.

I recommend against going super cheap. Tolerance/materials/finish all affect service life.

As it looks like it has no cons at all - im going for it!!
2 q's-

1 -The big diff is by changing the cylinder alone,right?
Changing the hydraulic line and/or removing spring is just an extra?
2 after doing that where is the most safe position(to make sure no damage will occur in the long run) for the pedal? 1:1 with the brake pedal height is ok?
