Slave cylinders keep going out

About 6 months ago I had one of the bolts holding the clutch to the flywheel snap, causing one of the clutch springs to crack and another to actually start falling out. The bolt became a high speed projectile and cracked the bellhousing in numerous spots as well. I ended up ordering a rebuilt mt82 with upgraded internals instead of worrying about other potential damages.

With the damage to the clutch, I ordered an Exedy Mach 600 stage 4 along with the Exedy Chromoly flywheel. Went with ARP flywheel bolts, 12.9 grade socket cap screws all around as well. Also upgraded to a stainless clutch line too.

The included slave cylinder started leaking when I was bleeding the clutch the first time. Dropped the tranny for the second time to find out the seal inside the slave cylinder blew out. Had it replaced for free and buckled everything back together. This one allowed me to bleed it, started my car to only find out it blew out (picture below). American Muscle refunded me and I ordered a Centerforce as that had really good reviews, as opposed to the Exedy.

Today I finally put the slave in, bled the clutch and it actually allowed me to drive. As I was driving around the block, the clutch pedal became spongy and started making a popping noise when I depressed my foot in all the way. I was able to drive it home, leaking fluid the entire way.

Iím just completely unsure what is going on with this car right now. Iím almost to the point where Iím just going to sell it if I can find out whatís causing these slave cylinders to completely ruin themselves.

Sorry for the long post, just super frustrated with this car now.
