Should I replace the slave cylinder?

I have a 2011 SS m6 (65k miles). The engine is out and wondering if I should just go ahead and replace slave cylinder? I thought I read about slave problems from the early 5th gens? I have not had a clutch problem but It would be my luck for it to go out after the car is back together.

Big difference in prices on #24266013

Summit has it at $432
GM Parts Direct $285
Tick Performance $278
Rock auto $146

As far as I know #24266013 is the updated on for all v8 manuals. Is there some reason I should not get the $146 one from Rock Auto?

Get a billet bearing support from Monster or Tick and ditch the plastic one in your new slave.
Monster sells new slaves with the billet support already installed if you prefer.
A remote bleeder is a good idea too.

Bingo pretty much must have items on these cars especially when trans is dropped out.

Hey guys, just confirming that if one plans to pull out the transmission to replace the clutch, replacing the slave isn't necessary, but a "might as well". Correct?

Yes. lf it ain't broke don't fix it. BUT, since your there it is easy to do. I've reused mine plenty of times with no problems. Just make sure to check the throwout bearing for excessive wear and be sure it spins freely. It pops right off, so you can grease it as well.
