Angry Throwout bearing keeps leaking?

Ok, so my brother has a 1988 yj and we have now put 3 new hydraulic throwout bearings! Is there a heavier duty one available as we are buying them at the local NAPA, or are we doing something wrong???? The rubber boot keeps tearing after less than 100 miles??

yea if your throwout bearing is leaking you DO have a problem... since they dont contain fluid.. so like kboles89 said is it your master cylinder which is mounted on the firewall (engine side) or the slave cylinder mounted on/or in the transmission...
If it Breaks and you just replace Lose!

I just replaced my ax15 and my year old slave was leaking already. I converted to an exterior slave cyl which meant getting a 94 bell housing and slave and making a new line from the master cyl to the slave.
