Clutch springs rubbing

As I am preparing to install my Seb's clear clutch cover, I noticed after I removed the pressure plate that the clutch springs have been rubbing on their 'posts' enough that there are grooves worn into the metal, maybe 1mm deep or so (shallow but noticeable)

 

Is this normal?  What would cause this?  Any need to replace the clutch basket?

 

Upon measuring the clutch springs themselves, 2 are below the service limit (in the range of 45.3 mm), while 3 are at the service limit (45.8 mm), so I will be replacing the set.

The basket will be fine.

You can install Barnetts + 10% springs for a bit more stiffness.

Just make sure you inspect the bolts, they tend to strech and then break when you try to reinstall them.

Guessing its not 3am in Australia?  :goofy:  Thanks for the quick reply!

 

So if the bolts are stretched beyond the 25mm stock measurement they should hit the bin?

 

Appreciate it!
