What's that noise?

My clutch was grabbing at the top but recently started grabbing near the floor. Along with that a scraping noise is audible when I have the clutch depressed and the car in gear as well as downshifting has become a bit more difficult. The hydraulic fluid was low so I filled it and bled the system a couple times.

Should I bleed it some more?

Is this an indication that my Master and/or slave cylinders are done for?

Next topic...I swapped out the driver side CV axle and noticed the ball joint on the lower control arm is done for. I went to Advance and asked about a replacement, I even took a picture. They didn't have a part for me or even knew what it is called. My question here is exactly what part is that called so I know what to ask for instead of guessing?

Thanks for any help.

Pretty sure it's just that, lower ball joint. MIght want to take it to a shop for that since you'll need an alignment afterwards anyhow.
