2 things- 915 rebuild or rebuilt?...does this list sum it up?

Car: 1984 Targa, daily driver with 139000 miles, not a track car...canyon car.

Problem: Transmission Toast

Ive read through 915 rebuild posts for a couple days and have a couple questions.

1. Why would you rebuild "your" transmission as opposed to swapping it with an already rebuilt trans...the shop has the rebuilt one already (the rebuilt was built at the same shop my car is currently at...quality So. Cal. shop) ? The savings is approx. $600 for the rebuilt and my old one.

2. Listing of parts going in "my" trans...any additions?...are we missing anything easy to replace "while in there" considering this is my baby...but gritting my teeth already at the cost...gulp!!!
