If you are running an original clutch, it could be the throw out bearing.

When a throw out bearing wears out, it starts wobble and knock against the fingers on the clutch's pressure plate.

Replacing a TO bearing requires removing the tranny and swapping it out. Might as well change the clutch too if you're in there.

How much does this job cost?

To have that done won't be cheap at all. I'd leave it unless you planned on getting your clutch done at the same time. Mine was like that aswell, but I had my Stage 3 clutch put in. Now I just have the great sond of my flywheel. ugh.

BTW, nice car but please resize your sig.
