If you have never replaced the hard drive cable, then I would highly recommend this be your first step as this model was known to have a very high failure rate for these cables. Apple even had a free replacement program available for a while, but is now expired for most people. The cable is inexpensive and the failures could show in many different ways.
I haven't read Crucial's instructions for cloning drives, so what software was being used? I've always been partial to Carbon Copy Cloner. Another option for you would be to do a fresh install on the SSD then migrate your data over using Migration Assistant.
