tranny problems....HELP!!

4.0 tj ax15 5spd manual
i had no problems until a week ago. I tried to drive to work and it shifted hard into 5th. once into 5th it ran fine except when i left it in 5th and coasted. there seemed to be a bad rumbling. when i down shifted into 4th or 3rd it went away. only in 5th and only when i coasted, regardless of the speed.
then on the way home from work the noise/rumble got worse. also, it started to grind 2nd and 3rd....and when i let the clutch out while in 5th and only in 5th, it makes a squeel. sounds like it could be the clutch going except that a bad clutch shouldnt have anything to do with the rumble in 5th. any ideas would help. i have already read some post on the possiblity of a broken 5th gear clip that lets it slide out of place. i have already taken apart the tranny and the clip is intact.
lastly, i have the clutch out and it looks even and good (to me)...any ideas on how thick the clutch should be when new. or, any ideas on the specs(thickness) of a bad one.
