The part numbers for the clutch and pilot bearing in the ACT lgt clutch kit and WRX.kit are the same. The only difference is the throw out bearing and the pressure plate in the kit i got are for the earlier 02-05 wrx/forester only. The part number for the lwfw are the same for 05 lgt and 06+ WRX too.
Reading the threads, many people have hit or miss with the ACT pressure plate and it failing early. From reading the many threads, i think the concensus is to go with an oem 06+ WRX pressure plate,...
Im going to see if my local Subaru has the 06+ WRX pressure plate for the ACT clutch and lwfw i got. Btw,..,the clutch kit and lwfw I bought was only $450. The clutch kit goes for $600+ and lwfw like $150+ or more,..
Part number ACT SB3-HDSS
