Pushing the clutch in shouldn't make the car go one way or the other. Only thing I can think of us the axles, but you mentioned they're newer. What did your toe specs look like when you got an alignment? Dumb question but you're not moving the wheel at all when pushing in the clutch/releasing it are you?

For the rotors - new rotors can develop a shake/shudder if you don't make sure the rotor stays clean while installing. I've seen many guys do new rotors and pads only to put their greasy/oily hands all over the rotors thinking the pads will wear it off. Boom. 20 miles later they have a shake similar to a warped rotor. Hope you didn't do that.

Steering rack bushings? I don't even know if they can be checked for damage without extensive work. Maybe there's a DIY around here for them.

I think the subframe has to come down to get them out. Not sure how to test that really.

Inner tie rods new as well?

Sticking caliper? Does it get worse the longer you’ve been driving?

Subframe bushings, subframe loose or subframe out of alignment? The subframe would have been removed toIf you have your clutch/flywheel done. You’d see the subframe being slightly tweaked in the caster measurement if you have the spec sheet from your alignment.
