It would be wise to verify your assembly with a service manual that has schematic diagrams and exploded views. Next time take a few cell phone photos prior to disassembly. Works wonders!

If you removed the clips on top of the transmission just bolting the two cables down and re-inserting the cables would be OK... I have replaced the clutch in my 2008 Spectra SX and never had to do any alignments...One thing to watch out for is a bad bushing that the clutch arm goes through going into the bell housing...I had all kinds of problems with what I thought was a clutch sticking ... replacing the clutch parts, master and slave cylinders only to find that bushing/sleeve had swelled binding both the clutch arm and also the bell housing... It was a real bastrd to get out...
My clutch is now smooth as silk...The part was special order and went for around $7.00...
