5 speed Corolla 1996, 145k miles

I have noticed that when going through the gears the clutch seems to race to the point of shifting to the next gear regardless of the speed. Given the mileage, I believe that I may need to replace the clutch. Exactly what part needs replacing?

You may also need

a pilot bearing, it would depend on the transmission you have.
