Product Reviews

My 2000 GT only has a place for one of the pulleys in the kit, which is the idler pulley at the top of the engine. The Steeda pulleys do not fit the tensioner arm, which is the only other pulley that is "flat" (not grooved). I don't know how you can tell whether the Steeda pulley will fit your tensioner arm in advance, other than removing the idler pulley and checking to see if it also fits the tensioner arm before ordering. Otherwise maybe make sure you have a friend that needs a pulley, too.
The bearing on the new pulley showed much more resistance than the original pulley with 150,000 miles on it. The original pulleys seemed almost frictionless! I anticipate the bearing in the Steeda pulley that I installed will free up over time, though, because it is supposed to be the same as OEM.

The kit comes without any instructions, just 2 pulleys, so if you have never even removed your belt you may want to learn about that first. I needed a bench vice to help remove the pulley from the tensioner arm (the one that didn't fit). Otherwise the replacement of the idler pulley was very simple.
