I have no idea whats in my truck for a clutch as I bought it used late last month but its very easy to push in, I would say it very close to the same effort that's required to push my GF's clutch in on her 05 Subaru.
Now the dc4+ clutch in my modded Jetta TDI is a completely diff story. It easily takes twice the effort to push in vs. my truck.

Try to drive a freightliner now that is a clutch you have to push in. You will be complainig about your leg faster than 10 min especially setting at a red light.
Most petes are gravy and have not driven many others.

i drive a 45,000 pound straight truck so i know all about semi's and what not. im asking about a zf6 not semi's. maybe i just need to get a little bit used to it. i mean the clutch is not hard as heck but it's pretty firm. i will just deal with it im not to worried about it at the moment just thought i would get some imput on this. but thanks guys

To answer your question it is possible that you have a defective pressure plate. That would cause a really hard pedal.

Id rate my stocker at about 9/10 for firmness. Its just the nature of a stock clutch in these. The fingers on the pressure plate are shorter than on the aftermarket ones such as my southbend in my dually. Longer fingers mean more mechanical advantage and less effort at the pedal.

If the cylinder needs replacing because of air, it will be squishy just like brakes that need to be bled. In my experience you will feel air bubbles in it as well.
