I would also recommend you consider the PDM-USA transmission snout kit with oversized throw-out bearing. TMALSS, Steve showed me where grooves were being worn on the soft aluminum "snout" of the trans, that the T-O bearing slides on. Actually demonstrated what he was talking about on a trans in the shop, as my car was complete. He told me he thought somebody made a "fix'" but wasn't really familiar with it. I subsequently was turned on to this link by a fellow NASIOC Legacy member;
I would have done this if aware in advance, but plan to use one when replacing my clutch next time around. Hope I haven't overwhelmed you!!

i just pulled off the old throwout bearing from my transmission and cleaned the snout. it looked real good, with only real light wear marks. the center portion of the throwout bearing does not spin - it only slides back and forth across the surface. so i don't anticipate this being a signifigant problem in the future. possibly the grease burned off of yours?
the factory service manual recommends lubricating the snout with a lithium grease with moly in it. i did that, and it appears to very smoothly slide along the snout, with very little play. i took some pictures, and will post them once i get the film developed...
