it also doesn't hurt to replace the clutch fork , pin, and spring clip as they're cheap.
one More addendum...
You don't NEED the special alignment tool, the Luk kits come with a generic one that works, not sure about the sachs though luk uses sachs go figure. Though it makes it a little easier and you can rent one.
The goal of the special tool is to prevent the clutch from coming apart , DON'T TAKE IT APART, as it's a 4 piece clutch. The Pressure plate, internal disk and plate are pretty solidly together it's the last disk that is loose.
