Pontiac in my eyes always offered more flair and sportiness compared to the lesser Chevys, Dodges and Fords in my years growing up in the 70's, 80's and 90's. Not a day would go buy in my childhood when a 60's GTO would go thundering by or a gorgeous 67-69 Firebird was parked next to us in the mall parking lot and these cars always got loads of attention. Even in the 70's and 80's the malls were filled with every example of Pontiac on display and they always were more cool than the plainer Chevys. The Grand Ams of the 70's offered European ride and handling with American power and parts availability and serviceability. From the Sprint 6, to the tri power V8's, Pontiac always offered something a bit more than it's competitors. Even in the late 70's when performance was on the decline, Pontiac still managed to offer something better than it's competitors with a 400/stick in the Trans Am, a 301 4BBL with optional 4 speed stick in the Grand Am, Grand Prix and Lemans with sport suspensions. The 301 turbo was something no one else offered too and kept the T/A abreast of the feebler efferts from Ford and Chrysler even though it wasn't up to it's full pontential. The 1984 Fiero was something no one else in America had and was way ahead of it's time. Who can forget seeing the beautiful black 1977 Trans Am pulling off the truck by Burt Reynolds in Smokey and the Bandit, the 25th Anniversery TA with fortified Grand National V6 turbo power, the 6000 STE, the Sunbird turbo coupe and convertible and the full sized Bonnevilles of the 90's that offered big car room with sporty car handling and zoom with the supercharged 3800 engines. Yes Pontiacs demise was a product of this dreadful decade of the SUV craze, cost cutting bean counters, a big shift to foreign made vehicles, poor quality control and loads of badge engineered mediocre bland products with equally bland medicore meaningless names. Thank you Lutz for destroying a once formidable car company that could so easily have been restored to glory.
I'm sorry, but Pontiac had no reason to exist beyond 1982. Once Chevrolet/generic GM powertrains were going into the cars it was over. Yes, they had their bright moments after that, but hardly anything that couldn't have been rebadged with another GM marque. If anything, Lutz delayed the inevitable with the revived GTO and subsequent G8 (would've sold better as a Chevelle or Caprice) and remarkable Solstice. The Aztek wasn't designed on his watch. I can't think of a single J-Body or FWD A/X-Body produced by ANY GM division...ever...that was in any way equal to, much less superior than its competition. Poor fit/finish, substandard components. They were cars designed by accountants instead of designers, and they are the single biggest reason for Toyota/Honda/Nissan...and Ford's success. Remember GM once had a 53% market share in the US and a lot of positive equity, thanks in good part to Pontiac's '60's successes. But once the badge-engineered bland camel got its nose under the tent, in the form of the 1971 Nova clones...it was the beginning of the end.I've stated in previous threads that maybe GM looked at Pontiac Canada with the success of its nakedly badge-engineered Acadians and Beaumonts in the 60's and figured, why not try it in the US? Whatever the reason...something despicable within GM began with the decontenting of the 1960 Corvair, shifted into high gear with the 1971 Vega and metastasized with the X, J and FWD A-Cars, reaching its climax with the unforgivable crossovers-made-from-minivans Uplander/SV6/Terraza, etc. Now GM is finally getting its act together, but the Sloan ideal of "a car for every purse and purpose" is decades past AND MUST BE LEFT THERE. The ideas that previously might have gone into Pontiac should now go to make better-contented Chevies, a marque with global recognition that makes up almost 70% of GM's sales. Bottom line, instead of bemoaning Pontiac's passing, be thankful you got to see it at all. Had it not been for Pete Estes/Bunkie Knudsen/John DeLorean/Jim Wangers AND a GM structure that, however flawed (AMA ban, anyone?!), enabled them to work their magic...Pontiac would've joined its Ford (Edsel) and Chrysler (DeSoto) contemporaries atop the scrap heap of history after the recession of '58.

Stock replacement GM Slave Cylinder & Throwout / Release Bearing for 2004-06 Pontiac GTO, LS1 or LS2 Engine, Part #24264183. Formerly GM #92067762. If you're removing the transmission for any reason, make sure you replace the slave cylinder while you've got everything apart. The weak link in the factory hydraulic setup is the master cylinder, so there is no need to upgrade your slave - just keep it fresh. Now is a great time to upgrade to our Tick Performance Remote SPEEDbleeder Line, as well!
You've got two choices when it comes to replacing the slave cylinder. You can go with this factory GM replacement for GTO (which includes the correct fitting to accept the stock GTO connection elbow) or purchase a 2001+ LS1 F-Body style slave cylinder for less money and swap your fittings off of your original slave onto your new one during the install. The F-Body (Camaro or Firebird) part number is 24264182. Both slave cylinders include throwout bearing, choose whichever works with your budget the best. Both are GM quality - don't trust an aftermarket slave cylinder!
