    @Zacowacko same thing here on my 2006 Taco: I purchased the CM kit 2 years back, it sat on the shelf, and i've sold it since after all these issues came up... Currently at 262k miles on the original Clutch/TOB and i'm considering the Tilton route, but also may just install another OEM set up as this has lasted a long, long time....

    I have gone through two of these Clutch Masters Release bearings, when they work they work great but they fail very prematurely. The first one lasted 8 months and failed leaving me stranded with no clutch pressure, and the second one I had installed failed 1.5 years later again no pressure, clutch pedal drops to the floor after a maximum of 20k-30k km, no heavy towing or extreme load on the truck or drivetrain.

    So now having to fix this issue for the third time, I think I will revert back to the OEM setup. Buyer beware don't buy this garbage product, the factory system lasted 170k km

    I might be interested in these spacers. How long have you been running the spacers for? Does this help with the premature seal failure due to the spacers preventing the bearing from constantly spinning?

    Thats awesome. I keep wondering when my clutch will go. Hopefully i can make it as long as you have. I do pull a trailer a good a bit, but has seemed to affect it so far. 2Lo mod helped out greatly with that. No more roasting the clutch. Did that many years back.
