What all to replace when doing clutch job.

I just got the Ford Racing clutch kit from AM and also bought the pilot bearing as well. What else should I think about replacing when doing the job. Also any pointers about the job seeing as I'm doing it myself.

Just double check the work so you don't have to do it twice

I'll probably go ahead and buy a new rear seal but if it's not leaking I probably won't replace it. Should I get a new clutch cable?

All you need to do is get a new clutch fork, clutch cable, ford racing throw out bearing, and a heavy duty quad. And just change out your transmission fluid.
