when it gets worse, it starts rattling.... <--- happened to me

this is called the perfect time to get an EX/Si tranny if you still have the DX.

well maybe... but when the clutch is engaged and you're in neutral, it's still spinning the mainshaft (input shaft) and you can hear it bounce around in the bearing really well because there's only idle engine noise.

push the clutch in and the engine isn't spinning the mainshaft anymore. no noise

The ISB rattle is common on lame serviced trannys of 75k miles and more.

Catch it early = $85
Catch it late = $150

Shipping not included.

I suggest replacing your axle seals when you do it, if you can. They're cheap and easy to get to when the tranny's out of the car. When the mechanic didn't do them when he replaced the clutch on my car, they leaked my tranny fluid out in 6 months.

(Somehow my ISB replacement spiralled to $240, and it hadn't exploded yet :S. Be prepared for possible problems- bad ball joints, torn motor mounts, stuff like that.)
