Default Time or a clutch job and SMF. What else should i change while i have it torn down?

So I have a 2006 Jetta BRM at 150k miles and it has had a rattly clutch for a year.
Yesterday I had the clutch sticking to the floor issue.
This has convinced me to go ahead and do the clutch and SMF conversion.
My main question is while i have so much of the car taken apart, what else should I change while I'm at it?
An example would be engine mounts or trans mount.
I promised myself I wouldn't do another fwd clutch job until I got an estimate...

Use fresh grease, to grease the starter motor. Its a 2 stage and the grease is drying out from 12 years of use.

Thanks, I will make sure to do that.

I'm gonna go with a South Bend stage 2 endurance and change the master, slave and clutch line.

I only have a Malone 1.5 tune and a Frank06 cam for now but I see a turbo and some injectors in my future.

Only thing that might need changing is the slave. Clutch line and Master will be fine. It's not like you can't easily get to those parts if you needed to.
