I can even shift faster and smoother with ease. Before, I really had to pay attention to the one-two step of the one-spring setup and make sure the car didn't jerk at all. In addition to all the advice on this thread it helps to use a small mirror in order to see where to "poke" the e-clip out of the bolt that holds the clutch-spring setup in place. The e-clip is on the left-side which makes it difficult for anyone with even a small head see to what they're doing. That's why the mirror comes in handy.

No more one-two stepping. And, it was really starting to hurt my knee. I could feel my knee popping every so often. Thanks everyone.
do you prefer with the spring completely removed or with the new spring instead?

after having a heck of a time removing the old spring, i havent gotten around to installing the new spring. debating if i should though based on people's feedbacks.
