Installing New Clutch, do I need to replace my Throw Out Bearing?

I just bought this kit from Central Florida Motorsports...

Will I need to replace the throw out bearing?

Yes. Well, you dont HAVE TO, but I would call you stupid if you didnt. Your in there already, and it wont add any time to the install, and its only $77 from Mike at Hilbish. Better safe than sorry.

Right, isn't the throw-out bearing built into the slave cylinder? It is on the MTX-75...

might be different on the duratec mated mtx-75. if i remember correctly i think my old toast early 2000 model mtx had them separate because the exedy clutch kit i bought was for 2001-2004 and i didnt know any better at the time.
