Replacing my clutch in a 99 v6 convertible with 140,000 miles on it,

Hey guys, it's my first post but I'm replacing my clutch on Thursday and was wondering what other parts I should consider replacing. I got a clutch kit, a fuel filter, and oil/ oil filter going in. I changed the belt, spark plugs, battery, cai, and break pads within the last year. My mustang has 140,000 on it now. anything else I should consider replacing due to its mileage and age? And any extra parts I should get for the clutch replacement? Thanks guys

And buy a new flywheel or if yours is in decent shape, have it resurfaced.

If you run into problems just ask, it will be easier if you have power tools and extensions and swivel sockets

Yeah I have power tools but they weren't strong enough because I think the last guy to replace my clutch used lock tight because 3 of them were impossible to get off, but I changed out my throwout bearing which was broken, so now she runs great and no noise and pedal rattle like i was having and I will give it a try again in a few weeks when I have the new tools
