    I Like the hydro. If you are going with a pass drop, then you want a driver slave. If going with a driver drop, then a pass slave (I have one). The pass slave is to close for comfort to the pass drop drive shalf. But if you are puting a real motor and trans into say a Bronco, but keeping the driver drop, then you need a pass slave.

    Nothing,But the location of the slave. I have a pass side slave if you are going to keep the truck with a drive drop.

    I am sorry should have explained better, My fault. When I say pass slave it is for a hydro bell. Hydro bells have slave cylinders, Manuals just have a fork and some have pivots too. So they made hydro's with the fork and slave on the driver or pass side. A good thing to remember is that the slave (if hydro) should be opposite of your drive shaft. Ex. pass drop driveshalf/ driver slave. Yes a man. bell has the linkage type, And I have never seen a pass side fork on a man bell. Sorry again about the confusion. Hope this clears it up for you.

    you using the driver drop (stock f*rd) driveshaft? If so Id run a hydro pass slave bell. Instead of messing with linkages.
