Default Getting ready for clutch installation

So my clutch has lasted for about 126,000 miles and after 7 months of being turbo, it is finally slipping to the point where i need my new one.

I found a shop that will install my act 6 puck along with my prolite flywheel for dirt cheap and i was thinking... are these the only seals I should replace? these are the ones i bought

FRONT TRANNY SEAL
REAR TRANNY SEAL
REAR MAIN SEAL

Someone let me know if im missing any.

Clutch slave while you're at it maybe, they're cheap enough.

At the bottom of this page lists all the things you CAN change or are MORE EASILY changed while you've got the tranny off: http://www.miata.net/garage/clutch2.html

The only obsolute mandatory ones are the REAR MAIN SEAL and FRONT TRANSMISSION SEAL. All others you can get to with the tranny still on, although it's a great idea to also do the WATER CAP, REAR TRANNY SEAL, and CAS O-RING. The SHIFTER BOOTS and CLUTCH LEVER DUST BOOT you can easily inspect prior to the job to determine if you need to replace them, they're not cheap. Both my shifter boots were completely destroyed after 140k miles, but my CLUTCH BOOT was perfect.

Don't let him push the rear main seal in as far as it will go. It only needs to go flush with the outer edge of the ring. I suggest you read through the clutch section at m.net here: http://www.miata.net/garage/garageengine.html and read through my writeup here: https://www.miataturbo.net/forums/showthread.php?t=5860 just to be as informed as possible.

Unless your mechanic has the mother of all hookups, buy your parts here: http://www.finishlineperformance.com...ta_engine.html I throw a lot of support to them. They ship same day, and although are a dealer, they're prices are about half of what you'll pay at a dealer.

Tommy is great to deal with for random parts too. I'm acutally stopping by tomorrow for a few odds and ends for my rear-end swap.
