156 - Clutch replacement & other jobs

I'm going to get the clutch replaced on my 156 JTD. As the subframe has got to come down, are there any other jobs that I should ask the mechanic to do while he's doing the job. I need to get the ARB replaced but was wondering if it's worth doing the rear crank seal, the master slave, gear box oil or anything else that will be 'easy' to get to. I need to get a new thermostat but was planning to do that one myself. Glowplugs also need doing but don't see how this will be any easy just cause the clutch is being replaced?

Thanks in anticipation. Loving the forum so far - a mine of information!

Slave cylinder is worth doing, and the crank oil seal as well if it looks like it has been leaking. Thermostat might be worth doing at the same time as he'll probably have the battery and battery tray out to help dropping the gearbox out.

Front anti-roll bar is the major one though, and top or bottom front wishbones if they are worn.
