clutch spring issue

Not sure if there is a topic about this but here it goes.
My clutch pedal is low until I use my foot to bring it up every time the car sits a few hours. I check the spring and the bushings, seem fine so does the spring. The clutch doesn't slip just the pedal is low at times when it sits for a while. Is there a fix to this problem?

Search for "clutch pedal sticking". Then stay up all night reading about it.

LPE has a spring you can install to assist with the pedal return.....

Gonna order this. Fluid was changed. Funny how nothing was wrong and when they instsalled the new shifter "GM dealership" been having this problem. The shifter rod came apart and was under warranty. So they replaced with a new one and thats when I started having the pedal stick. Returned a week later and they put new fluid in and it was fine for a day. Im thinking that there design of the return spring isn't that great. They should have kept the older 1967-1969 design. Just a spring pulling up the pedal. Seems that the spring pushes the pedal up on the new camaro.

You can also get a 6" spring at Tractor Supply for $3.50, drill a small hole at the top of your clutch pedal and attach the other end the same place the LPE spring does. This is what I did.
