I would imagine this would only be a concern on a car that is driven daily and does front brake jobs every 30-40,000 miles.
On a garage queen this really wouldn't be much of an issue.

I am no mechanic for sure but any time I replaced a clutch I bought a new pressure plate and throwout bearing assembled it and drove it. I had a s-10truck that I got 300,000 out of it and only put 1 clutch and 1 set of brakes on it. I guess I am not a "hard braker" LOL.

Ya I understand. On most run of the mill cars like the S10 you mentioned I don't really worry about it. It's on the high HP applications where I am more critical about the clutch.
I always check for runout with a dial indicator and I also like to mount the bell housing and check it as well and use adjustable dowl pins if necessary to center the bell housing with the crank centerline. If it's off just a slight amount it puts undue stress on the input shaft and can cause shifting problems when you really try to hang some gears.
Thats mainly on the older stuff I play with though.

I understand you just want things to be right-thats a good thing in my book.
