replacing slave cylinder

So I've come to the conclusion that my slave cylinder is bad in my 99 trans am ws6. Do I really need to drop the tranny to replace it?

You have to at least pull the trans back about 6", out away from the bellhousing. The LS1 slave fits over the input shaft, and is about 6" in depth.

ok thanks again for the help mike. I was hoping it was going to be an easier job but at least I can take a look at the clutch while I'm in there.

on an LT1, no, its right there, 2 nuts and its off, but if you do a slave on a LT1 i woudl really recommend just plurging and getting the entire hydraulic system, just from past experiences.
