Your 2015-2019 Mustang comes with a 185 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 Mustang GT, EcoBoost or V6.

Many new Mustang 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 S550 Mustang Clutch Assist Spring 35 lb/in into your GT, EcoBoost or V6.

Our Steeda S550 Mustang Clutch Assist Spring 35 lb/in completely replaces the factory 185 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 S550 Mustang Clutch Assist Spring 35 lb/in for your 2015-2019 Mustang GT, EcoBoost or V6 at Steeda Autosports today!

Note: Clutch spring may be incompatible Ford Performance M-9452-M8.

Awesome! Best mod for the price!
Wow! This clutch spring made such a huge difference in the clutch feel and engagement. I'm so glad I didn't wait too long to install this in my 2018 Mustang GT . This is the cheapest best mod you can do. Check out my video review on YouTube, search for channel High Rev.

Even an old guy can install it
I bought this spring last fall but just got around to installing it today, now that the snow has finally melted. I used a piece of wood to hold the clutch pedal down, so I could use both hands to get the old spring out. Other than not being able to work under a dash as well as I could 50 years ago, the installation was easy., thanks to the good instructions. A little more effort to depress the clutch, but easier to engage it smoothly.

Big improvement
When i removed the old spring i couldn't compress it with both hands. It is unbelievable to me how ford thought their design was acceptable, its as if they never bothered to drive it. This spring is much softer, the clutch pedal is no longer pushing against my leg when i am trying to feel the biting point. Personally i would by an even softer spring if it was available but this one is 100% better than what ford put in there, its no longer live driving a tractor. My opinion is that you only need to buy the spring unless of course you break the other pieces during installation.

Clutch pedal spring review
I'm not sure I knew what to expect. The pedal feel is a little lighter and the transition is a bit easier to feel. The big improvement that I did notice is that I've improved my timing of clutch disengagement to gear change timing. The shifts are much more fluid now. I attribute that to the new spring. Good job Steeda!

Thanks Steeda
Clutch pedal was tough to modulate on my '16 GT because of the giant stock spring. Steeda's 35 lb spring solution worked like a charm and was eay to install.

More linear feel, excellent quality!
Install is super easy. Take needle nose pliers, grip the stock spring and compress in the middle, then twist and pull out. The Steeda spring can by placed back in without a tool since it's much softer and compresses easily. Initial impressions. The pedal is definitely stiffer when pushed in, but when released the feel is much more progressive and linear, the softer release allows smoother engagement. I can see why Ford used the stiffer spring since it helps reduce clutch pedal effort when pushed in, but they went too far with a 150 ft-lb spring since you have to fight the clutch pedal on release and not let it come back too fast. With the Steeda spring, you feel like you're actually releasing the pedal yourself, rather than pushing against a strong force as in the case with the stock spring. Overall, a great product and well worth the price. One caveat is that people who like a softer clutch pedal, where it's easy to push in and springs back up quickly, may not appreciate the change. Those who like to drive smoothly and appreciate more of a linear engagement point will love it. The Steeda feel is similar to how the clutch feel was like in previous gen Mustangs.

I absolutely love the clutch feel with this installed! Shifts are smooth and the vague feel is gone! Install was easy in about 5 minutes. I could've done it faster but was being careful not to break the stock top and bottom caps since I was going to reuse them. Wish I would've done this sooner.

Absolute MUST
A must for any 6 speed s550... Installation takes 10 min... There is no difference in the weight of the clutch, but the grabbing point becomes MUCH more apparent than with the vague stock spring

Cheapest/Easiest Mod To Improve Driveability
As the title suggests, this spring is probably the easiest, cheapest thing you can do to significantly improve the feel of your clutch, and overall driveability of the car. there are no more lurches during shifting, it's easier to take off from a stop, and the clutch overall just feels better. I did chip a piece of the top perch's ear during removal, but it didn't impact the perch's ability to stay in place when reinstalled. The only downside I could really give to this spring is that it gives the clutch pedal a bit more free play than the stock spring. It's perfectly normal and won't hurt anything, it just worried me a bit at first, because it wasn't something I was used to, or have ever felt in any of the manual cars I've driven. This could be remedied by just adjusting the pedal, but I don't think I'll even bother doing that because it really isn't an issue. Overall, this is a must have for any S550 owner with a 3rd pedal!

I can't believe how much this improved the clutch feel.
I can't believe how much this improved the clutch feel. Usually mods come with pros and cons, increased NVH etc, but this is amazing! I've never changed something so cheap and had such a great impact on the way the car drives. The clutch comes back better, you can feel the change in pressure during engagement, and it is so much easier to drive smoothly.

Feels much, MUCH smoother.
I just installed this on my 2013 GT. I was able to do it without the needle nose vice grips in about 10 minutes. Would have taken less than two with them, but whatever. I snuck some zip ties through the stock spring, and with the clutch engaged (pedal all the way up) I tightened the heck out of em'. Only felt like putting 3 on the stock one due to how much of an awkward spot it's in, then just follow the directions, prying down on the upper retainer with a flat head screwdriver to drop it out of the slot. Install a few zip ties to the new one, squeezing the spring to tighten the zip ties as much as possible. Put the spring retainers on, slipping the bottom one over the lower mounting pin, and with some of the spring stroke compressed already, you should be able to squeeze it down that last bit to slip the whole unit together. Just remember the pedal has to be completely pushed in/down to facilitate removal of the old spring, AND to get the new one in. If you have a pedal holder I imagine it would be even easier. Now just snip off the zip ties and pull em' out and you're ready to go. I haven't actually driven with it yet, but I did hop in and feel it. Feels much, MUCH smoother. No more awkward resistance right in the middle of the pedal travel. It also might be all in my head because of how much smoother it is, but I think the clutch is even a little softer too, which is nice for someone like me who drives roughly 70-90 miles a day, often in rush hour traffic. You really can't beat it for 10 bucks. If you have needle nose vice grips I'm sure that's the way to go, much quicker. But if you don't have any on hand, but have about half a dozen zip ties- that^ is how you'll save a trip to the auto part store.

Far smoother shifting than before
Holy nuts, huge difference in how quickly the transmission engages as compared to the OE spring. Clutch action feels a lot shorter than with OE spring. Far smoother shifting than before. Very happy with the results from such a small modification.

Wow!
Wow! What a difference! This springs is a must buy for any S550 owner. That giant spring from factory doesn't make any sense and makes the car feel sloppy when pushing the clutch. Once you install the steeds spring your going to wonder why didnt you changed it before. For $10 is probably the best mod Ive made to the car. If your thinking about it, don't! Just throw your money at the computer screen and wait for it to arrive. Love the new Steeda spring.

The Steeda 35 lb spring is the best of both worlds
Took off the stock spring after ordering and rode like that for the weekend. While having no spring was better than the stock spring, it was a little too hard on my knees and the clutch pedal came up a little too fast. The Steeda 35 lb spring is the best of both worlds, giving a smooth takeoff and clutch feel of no spring, while not being hard on the knees like the stock spring.

Now the clutch is very intuitive
I installed mine last weekend. I just followed the instructions that were included with the spring and found the installation to be pretty easy. It took 10 minutes or so. Today was my first chance to really drive the car with the new spring and I like it. I was able to drive car smoothly before, but it took a lot of concentration. Now the clutch is very intuitive and I don't have to think about what I doing nearly as much anymore. The clutch is definitely heavier, but not unduly so.

Such a small thing, but made a huge difference
I finally installed the Steeda Clutch Spring that was sitting on my tool box for the last few weeks. Holy shit what a difference. I have been rocking that stock spring since day one and I got pretty good at it. But this feels so much better. Do yourself a favor, go to Steeda's web site and order it, if you haven't already. Such a small thing, but made a huge difference.
