A bit more history on what works and what makes noises or fails if you're interested in looking at a replacement. I'd rather hear from someone whos owned a clutch for years and see how it holds up, the camaro is too new of a platform to get a lot of feedback on longevity.

Mine clunks now and then too but as long as its shifting fine and nothing grinds I don't worry about it. Eventually it'll get replaced with something beefier that hopefully has good manners.
I definitely agree with this: I feel like the noise is probably normal but the platform is very new and we should definitely keep an eye on it.

In the meantime, I'm not going to stress about the noise.
