Wich bearings is the best to use? Ceramic and regular. and should be tight not sloppy. I'm thinking of the 8x16 kind..
And what clutch bell bearings to use?

I've used the Avids also. They're both nice.

I buy the Boca Bearing green seals for my vehicles. They take a ton of abuse, and last for a VERY VERY long time. The stock bearings in my vehicles only last 1/8 to a 10th of what the green seals last, and worth every dollar. It comes out to about $80-$100 for a set per vehicle. The only bearings I will buy from now on.
