You'll want to pull off and resurface the flywheel. A clutch kit should come with a new T.O. bearing, and piolite bearing. You'll want to have new fluid ready.
The spec 4 puck chatters too much, or at least it does on my smaller Escort clutch.

What does "chatters too much" mean? Is it a problem with the way it works, or is it just not ideal for a daily driver?

I think in the coming months I'll need a new clutch as well and don't want to be let down like I was with the stage 2.

There is about 3 or 4 (all of em) Escort owners with the 1.9 spec 4 puck that has a chatter problem. But for me I cant even get into hard boost with out it slipping and chattering. I'm not sure if it's the clutch thats bad or if there is a another problem going on that I dont know about.
A stage one or 2 should be good for mild power, they dont use the pucks.

Well I have a Spec 2 now, but I'm planning a retune and also getting a nitrous tune, so I figure I may want to upgrade the clutch soon.

Well, I may be upgrading whether I want to or not.

My Stage 2 will slip if it gets too hot (read: 2 hard launches), so I was wondering what the suitable replacement would be...
