The TSK3 is a snout sleeve and throwout bearing kit. Whether you choose to install it or not is totally independent of which clutch & flywheel you use. I did install the TSK3 kit with my FX300 and SMFW, because after 98K miles the trans snout had a small amount of wear on it where the TOB rides. If he's at 36K and replacing the clutch due to slippage and not a TOB related issue, his trans snout is probably fine. At that point you're just deciding if you want to spend $180 (or whatever it costs) for whatever safety that snout sleeve gives you if the next TOB happens to seize catastrophically. People have had the actual bearing in the TSK3 kit fail too, so it's not guaranteed to be better than whatever bearing comes with the clutch kit.
