Your 2011-2014 Mustang comes with a 200 lb/in clutch assist spring installed from the factory. This high-rate spring is what causes such a vague and disconnected clutch pedal feel. The clutch pedal travels in a circular arc, with the spring assist in the middle of that clutch pedal travel. The middle of that motion compresses the spring initially and then allows it to extend after the first 30 degrees of travel. The combination of a high-rate assist spring and motion of the pedal during engagement causes a non-linear and sometimes confusing pedal feel. Having a non-linear pedal feel makes it hard to modulate the clutch on your S197 Mustang.

Many Mustang GT, V6 or Boss owners have found that taking out the stock OE spring will give you somewhat similar results, but realistically the clutch becomes far too heavy especially if your Mustang is daily driven. Most owners fail to realize the prolonged effects of simply taking out your factory OE spring and not replacing it with another spring. By negating your factory clutch assist spring you will notice chatter/NVH from your clutch pedal. Your clutch pedal will never fully return to stock position without any assist spring, and over time your slave cylinder may begin leaking due to constant pressure on its seals from the clutch pedal not returning to the stock position. Avoid these problems in the future by installing our Steeda S197 Mustang Clutch Assist Spring 95 lb/in into your GT, V6 or Boss.

Our Steeda S197 Mustang Clutch Assist Spring 95 lb/in completely replaces the factory 200 lb/in assist spring. Our engineers have honed in on just the right amount of spring rate to get you the perfect clutch pedal feel you look for in a Mustang. This assist spring is manufactured from piano wire that naturally has high tensile strength and high elastic qualities. Our piano wire spring ensures a consistent spring rate and minimal sag even after repeated use. With the addition of our clutch assist spring, you will notice a much more linear feeling clutch - the reason being is that we take out much of the influence involved in your clutch pedal motion caused by the assist spring, allowing you to feel exactly what is happening with your clutch engagement.

Purchase your Steeda S197 Mustang Clutch Assist Spring 95 lb/in for your 2011-2014 Mustang GT, V6 or Boss at Steeda Autosports today!

Better pedal feel and response than stock
Installed the clutch spring today and found it is a better pedal feel and response than stock. Just want to let you know insulation is a little difficult if you are a large person. There is not a lot of space to work. To remove old spring and install the new one, I held pedal depressed with a 1" X 1" stick 28 1/2 inches long placed between clutch pedal and floor board below seat. Remove old spring as described in the instructions. When putting the new spring in, instead of trying to compress spring by hand or vice grips, use 2 plastic ties. Place a tie on each side of spring going around all the middle coils, compress spring and draw them tight. Put on both spring seats including upper pin. Mount the lower spring seat on rod, line up the upper pin and seat. The upper pin hole is slotted, after alignment is done simply cut plastic ties and upper pin and spring seat will go into place. Hope this helps. After trying to compress spring by hand and vice grips, I found this is a much better way to get new spring into place.

Whoa !!!!! what a difference
So .........I have owned a 07 Shelby GT for 5 years and now a 2012 Boss 302 , I have used many Steeda Parts , and can say you guys are the best and sending the correct part the first time , and they are High Quality . Most recently I put a Mcleod RST clutch in my 12' Boss with pilot bearing , throw out bearing , and a new MGW Race Spec Shifter (though I think the TRI-AX is as good) , All these parts functioned great , the dual plate clutch really allows you to appreciate the Torsen Diff . However the Pedal feel was gone and eratic .......... So I ordered you assist spring for my Boss ....Took all of 15 minutes to install .............Just took it for a ride up Hwy 1 from Cambria towards BIG SUR ......., cool ride.............. and Whoa !!!!! what a difference , all the other work is enhanced by you ten dollar spring !!! Keep up the good designs and service ........I trust you guys. And that means I feel good on the track at Laguna Seca , and Willow Springs

Greatly improves clutch 'feel' without adversely affecting pedal pressure.
Nice fix to a problem I didn't really know I had. Greatly improves clutch 'feel' without adversely affecting pedal pressure. To begin the job, I put a 30" (approx.) 1 x 2 in place against the seat support frame to hold the clutch down. Be super careful not to knock this out while you are working under there. When preparing the new spring for installation, the vise grip pliers approach for me would temporarily bend the spring making it difficult to get the end fittings to align. So using the vise grips I collapsed three coils on the new spring and held them with two heavy duty zip ties, one opposite the other. I also cleaned and then re-lubed the pivot points and sliding surfaces with a silicone grease prior to the reinstall. Once the new spring assembly was in place it was easy to cut the zip ties with a razor knife. Very nice work, Steeda. Why the Ford engineers can't figure this stuff out simply amazes me.

This little thing is perfect
Just put mine in. Had the stock clutch spring which was too awkward. Drove around with no spring for a while but was a little too tough to modulate at low speeds. This little thing is perfect. Should've come stock with the car.
