Both...you can check the length of the springs and the thickness of the plates...you just need a micrometer...I would do this before changing the clutch just to make sure that this is the problem: twocents:
If you need the factory specs on the sizes for the springs and the plates let me know.
A good place to get OEM parts is Section8...give Jason a buzz
P.S. Next time you can put both topics in one forum
Two reasons. The local wearing-away of friction material on the plates, and the reduction of the force pushing the plates together because each as each plate gets thinner, the total plate stack height gets shorter and the spring preload force drops.
