I'm taking my truck in to have a new clutch installed next week. While they're in there what else should I have them address? Truck has about 220k on it.

Aside from the normal pilot bearing/throwout bearing, have them make sure there isn't any input shaft play on the transmission. Good time to install a larger down pipe if you don't have one yet.

Thanks guys. It's already got the downpipe, and there's no leaks. The clutch is from Valair and has a SMF attached to it in the box.
How hard is that clutch arm to find? Do you think the shop can find one pretty easy? I don't want to pay them for any more than I have to, especially running down parts.
I asked about a slave cylinder and they told me they could do that while they're in there. Any advice on that?
I really wish I could do this myself, take my time, and make sure it's done right. I just don't have a good place or enough friends with strong backs.

yeah defiantly change the slave it could cost you the new clutch if it seizes and get stuck applying the clutch making it slip
