slave cylinder question

My 97 Ford Ranger needs a clutch job. I witnessed brake fluid dripping from the throw out bearing on the slave cylinder. I got a clutch kit to do the whole job, The kit came with a throw out bearing and no slave cylinder. Why would a kit come without this slave? It may just be the throw out, but it took me long enough to drop the transmission not to change this slave as well. I was just wondering if Ford thinks that the slave normally doesn't go out and it is the bearing that fails.

Because a slave cylinder isn't part of a clutch kit. Clutch kit most times consists of the clutch disc, pressure plate, and alignment tool. I've seen a number of them that come with a pilot bearing or throwout bearing too.

It's just rule of thumb....they always seem to come with a throwout. The slave cyl is it's own entity as is the master.
