I always try the cheapest and easiest thing first. The rubber liner is
associated with the boot (comes out with it as an assembly) but I think
it can be purchased separately. Well, at least I thought Pete Kunzler
had done that.
I didn't notice that any of the bushings were loose at all. Everything
feels pretty snug. But then I have recently had subframe bushings and
transmission mounts replaced when putting in the new transmission, so
that may help.
If you have a pressure bleeder it is fairly easy to do the clutch, or
the brakes for that matter.
