[DML] Trouble shifting into first gear

My problem:

Sometimes when I go to shift the car into first it makes a clunk noise and I can feel the 
feedback on the shifter like something is hitting it. It doesn't make any kind of grinding 
noise. I first thought this was the sign of a old plastic clutch line. Went ahead and ordered a 
new master slave and stainless line kit. Replaced the master (which had begun to leak the 
slightest bit in the car) and the stainless line. Held off on the slave as I could only reach it to 
bleed it but not remove and replace. Trouble still occurred. 

Just finished a VOD teardown and also replaced the slave in the process. Bled it thoroughly 
but its still thunking into first on occasion. Clutch is nice and firm. I have also replaced the 
pivot bolt. New transmission oil is going in this weekend. 

What could be causing this?!
