Neither. First try the clutch quadrant readjust by pulling the clutch pedal up (towards you) to force it to readjust. If thay doesn't work then do the clutch pedal free play mod (google it) your TOB is fine if it isn't squealing and the cable is fine if it isn't ridiculously stiff.

Yeah no problem. The reason the clutch pedal is bouncing is because the TOB is riding on the clutch fingers all the time. The mod is just installing a spring on the cable by the clutch fork to force the fork backwards

Do NOT do the free play mod. The TOB is designed to ride on the clutch fingers at all times under light cable tension. Otherwise you are going to be taking the TOB from 0-however many RPM you are going in an instant. It burns up the TOB and is hell on the clutch fingers. I did the free-play mod once before I knew better. Smelled like burning clutch every time I drove the car. I researched more and found out it is a HUGE no-no.

If the pedal is bouncing around then it could be the quadrant or it could be something with the clutch assembly. Like... what EXACTLY is it doing.

Well do you have a stock cable or aftermarket? Because aftermarket cables are ALL problematic. Also look under the dash and see what sort of quadrant you have installed or if its OEM. When I got my 98 the previous owner had just throw a random quadrant in there and not shimmed it properly or anything. The pedal feel was terribad. You could also have a broken plastic quadrant.

Like I said describe exactly what it is doing and under what circumstances, if anything makes it better, if anything makes it worse.
