Throwout bearing slave question

I just had to change the clutch in my 96 cummins ram because the throuwout bearing was completely toast.

My question I cant find an answer to anywhere is when I was putting everything back together I was bolting the slave cylender in and there was pressure I had to push it in to get the bolts on and it was trying to push itself out as I was tightening it.

Now my question is that doesnt seem right to me, wouldnt it be putting the throwout bearing in contact the whole time then?

The clutch works great but Im a little leary to drive it much and toast another throwout bearing that wasnt a fun day to pull that tranny transfer case out.

that is normal, and yes there will always be a little preload on the throw out bearing, all the later Chrysler external slave set ups seem to be like that.
