I'm wondering if the throwout bearing/slave cylinder should be replaced at the same time while they have the new transmission out?

The clutch throwout bearing pilot beAring should be replaced whenever the transmission or engine is out. It takes about 15 minutes to replace with either the engine out or the trans. Flywheel should be replaced or resurfaced as well. At least that is standard procedure. I on the other hand have had my engines out and not replaced any of these. I have gotten 300k out of the clutches on my 98, 89 and 87 mustangs

Must be why they call it a a "throw out bearing" . . .

. . . . After awhile, you need to throw it out.

I'm if some has mentioned it butt also check your shifter cables were they attach to the trans. I have a 2013 with the 6 speed too and one of my cable connectors what cracked. Causing it to be hard to shift into gear.
