clutch heavy?

Just got my car back from having the clutch replaced today (bad throw-out 

A few observations, at 176k miles, still had some material left on the clutch 
(but not much).  The pedal pushes much easier (bought the car with 68k and 
pedal was stiff). Replaced leaky rack and checked the hard to reach vacuum stuff 
on the rear of the motor. Found excessive play in the stainless ball part of 
the shift linkage (penned it tight and shifter now has less slop).

Cruise control now works!  (don't know why). 

Use Lehmans Garage in Eagan MN.  They let me supply my own parts and were 
great to work with.  Cost was 1K, (clutch, resurface flywheel, install rack and 
alignment, plus some misc. stuff).  Had no problem letting me under the car to 
check other stuff.
