This Tick Performance Upgraded Stainless Braided Line for 2004-07 Cadillac CTS-V Using LS7 Slave Cylinder allows you to use a GM Slave Cylinder & Throwout / Release Bearing for 2005-2013 C6 Corvette & Z06, Part #24237634 in your 2004-07 Cadillac CTS-V. When you change the factory Dual Mass Clutch Assembly to a standard clutch assembly, the LS7 Slave Cylinder works in the CTS-V without a spacer but the slave line is far too long and needs to be bent in order for it to work. This Tick Performance Upgraded Stainless Braided Line eliminates the need to purchase the pricey CTS-V Slave and doesn't force you to try and use the longer LS7 slave cylinder line.
- The picture above illustrates the difference between the long factory LS7 slave line and this Tick Performance Upgraded Line
- Requires you to make a minor clearance area where the line meets the bellhousing
- Quality Stainless Braided construction with black heat wrap to keep your hydraulic clutch fluid as cool as possible
OPTION GUIDE: Do I need the GM LS7 Corvette Slave Cylinder?
If you don't already have one, yes, you'll want one! It is a good idea to replace the slave cylinder every time you've got the transmission out as they're known to leak over time. Now is a great time to upgrade the factory release bearing support, as well, which is made of plastic and is notorious for getting hot and completely failing (especially in high horsepower/high abuse applications.) Our TICKshift Billet Release Bearing Support is manufactured from 6061-T6 aluminum alloy, there is no chance of it failing regardless of temperature. Available either simply included in your package or installed on your slave cylinder prior to shipping.
Option Guide: Do I need a Remote SPEED Bleeder Line?
No, the Remote SPEED Bleeder Line is not required for proper install and function, but it is certainly convenient! Our Tick Performance Remote Clutch SPEED Bleeder Line makes bleeding your hydraulic system a "One Man Job" and stays installed on the car so you can quickly, easily bleed your hydraulic system as often as necessary. This line requires transmission removal to install, so installing when you're installing the Slave Cylinder is your best bet! Available either simply included in your package or installed on your slave cylinder prior to shipping.
Option Guide: Do I need a Slave Cylinder Shim Kit (3 Pack)?
When replacing any clutch or slave cylinder in any newer GM performance application, proper geometry is key to a high-functioning, quick shifting setup.
