Okay guys, here is what I noticed in my car:

In first or second mainly at low RPM's but enough that there shouldn't be lagging, it felt very touchy, it would make Cluncks and would tend to lean forward a bit almost as if you had the clutch out but weren't giving it enough gas and it was bunny hoping, although I knew I was giving it enough gas......
Say at 2000 rpms in second gear I would let go of the gas to put on the brake and clutch and it would clunck and hop depending on certain speeds........
I bet you it probably hasn't been replaced in either of your guys cars, would be interesting to see if your flex disc's are worn out, mine was shot, and man, the car is much more smooth........
Good luck,
I will let you guys know on how much for labour, I remember my mechanic saying it wasn't difficult........

Here is a pic of a flex disc for my model, pretty much the same as your guys.....
