Default Clutch Shoe's

When is the best time to change your clutch shoe's? I know how to maintain the shoe but when is it time to put in a new one?

ive been told that the shoe needs to be replaced when the shoe is level with the fly wheel pin the shoe goes into.

when they wear down, usually, replace before the clutch spring starts grinding

The shoe should always be above the pins, you don't want the pins to touch the clutch bell. So replace it before it gets to that point.

any pre-indication signs before its time to replace? Such as engage takes longer or sounds differently?

i adjust my clutch based on feel and just use the pins as a guide line on when to throw the clutch shoe away.
