Jeep 4.0l Slave Cylinder problems

This is what is happening. Well about 3 months ago my jeep started making a noise when i pushed in the clutch. It also became very hard to shift and then it wouldnt shift at all unless i flow shifted it. I pulled the transmission and replaced the slave cylinder and it was fixed for about 2 months. Then one day it started to do the same noise. The noise is like a loud metal to metal squeel/screech only when i push the clutch in. Well i thought it was maybe my clutch so i pulled the transmission and found out that my crank shaft could move back and forth about 1/4 of an inch. So then i dropped the oil pan and found out that whoever rebuilt the engine before i bought it put the thrust bearing in the wrong spot and it smashed a little and that was why it had play. I also thought since there was a noise and there was play in the crank shaft the clutch or something connected to the crank shaft must be hitting something and causing the squeel when i push in the clutch and it pushes the flywheel toward the block. Well i replaced the main bearings and put the thrust bearing in the right place and there was no noise or play. I put everything together and drove it until this week and now it is making the same noise again. I think that the slave cylinder that i bought 3 months ago is bad but i am not sure. This time when i replace the slave cylinder i am also going to replace the pilot bearing just for fun since if it goes out i will have to pull the transmission again and it is only 7 dollars. When i changed the main bearings i did not see anywhere that had metal to metal wear. Is there any other things that could make this metal to metal squeel other than the slave cylinder. Also the slave cylinder on jeeps ax15 is built with the throwout bearing connected to it if yall didnt know this. Thanks for reading this long post and if yall need any more info just ask.

Thanks a lot!

Did you check the throwout bearing when you had it apart last time? I would replace it anytime the clutch was taken apart.

The jeep throw out bearing in the ax15 is connected to the slave cylinder and it and the slave cylinder are one unit and them both together as one piece costs $160 but it is a good thing that there is free replacement the bad thing is that i have to do the work.

Turned out that all it was was the transmission was comming away from the engine. No biggie.
