In order to replace the clutch release bearing, the rear exhaust, the torque tube, and the gearbox must be removed.
Unless you are comfortable with the additional replacement costs of the friction disc, the pressure plate and the pivot pin, I would suggest that you hold off until you can feel the coarseness of the bearing via the ball of your left foot.
that bearing may fail quickly, or may not fail for another 80k miles.
