93 yj tranny/clutch problem

i have a 1993 yj, the tranny only grinds while downshifting, and my slave was leaking, so we replaced it today, well that didnt fix the problem.. clutch is fairly new, with probably 1000 miles. i dont know where else to go with it. if anyone has any suggestions, im appreciate it. thanks.

Well, its not a Porsche. I really don't downshift mine in the conventional sense. So I would suggest not doing that.

not doing what? downshifting its pretty hard not to when everywhere i go is hilly and need to downshift fairly often and it grinds and doesnt want to go into gear.

Have you checked your clutch master cyl? I was having grinding issues, then it stopped going into gear altogether, changed out the master & it shifts better than ever now. Make sure master is full & check for leaks inside the firewall where the clutch arm pushes & on the firewall in your engine bay. I've been told that once the clutch master goes the slave is next to go, or vice versa. (and I see you chNged out the slave so master could have failed)

most here will advise you to change them out at the sametime anyways. Alot of the time when the M/C goes it will leak past the piston ram without leaking fluid out. I would agree to replace the M/C but only with an OEM replacement not a reman'd one from parts house.. Most ppl have them last a few months at best.
You get what you pay for,,
