With the clutch being the definition of a wear item and the cost to replace it ($500-800) you generally don't do it in a preventative manner.

Make sure you get a price if you're having them do the work. The first dealership I took my first RX8 to charged me over $1500 for plugs coils wires and a MAF cleaning.

When I sold my first RX8 the person buying it removed the battery out of their car and used it to start mine. Then removed it and put it back in his. Seemed to work fine.

When my mounts were bolted to the car, they looked completely fine. It was only after removing them that you could tell the passenger side was shot.

Are you sure your car isn't lowered? The stock RX8 is pretty low, but it's not that low.
