Should I have them replace anything more then just the clutch and TOB?

New flywheel or resurface the one you have already which is fine and probably cheaper.

Pilot bearing change is required. Fork should be fine. Obviously change throwout bearing too.

On my 01 which had the T45 I had the KC and it was a very good clutch. It did have a good wear in period of chatter but turned out to be a very trust worthy clutch. In my 02 now I put the Exedy stage 2 and im just as happy with it. Its a smooth operating clutch. Never had the wearing in chatter with it. Either is good and a good price.

Either is good, I'd get whatever is a better price. I had 0 chatter or any issues at all with the KC. I installed it myself and torqued everything properly.

Did you resurface your flywheel or get a new one? I just resurfaced mine so that may of made the difference I had tons of chatter for almost 700 miles. I know this I could dump the clutch at 5k and it would grab like a motherf***er haha.

I bought a stock resurfaced jobber for $99 and installed it.

Oh, if you have higher miles have them do the rear main seal while they are in there. Good preventative maintenance, they should not charge you hardly any more money and its literally RIGHT in front of them while the flywheel is off. If it decides to go at some other time it's $hundreds to replace a $10 seal because the trans/clutch/flywheel have to all come out.

I would while they are in there. Ask them how much extra it would be, it really should be minimal if anything. They will be staring right at it when the flywheel comes off.
