Very good friend of mine has a 210 tune in his truck and the stock clutch slipped. He's now got a South Bend Dual Disc in it. Thing grabs AWESOME. Clutches aren't warrantied much anyhow, they are a 'wear item' like brake pads.
Likely, the Ford dealer will tell you your throwout bearing is going away with the dual disc South Bend.
And yes, the dual disc South Bend clutch is NOISY. But only with the pedal pushed in. Driving down the road it's no different than the stocker.
The SB clutch, I noticed, as well as my friend, is VERY grabby. This isn't a fault per se, it's just the way it acts. It's very chattery getting the truck moving, even for someone that's driven stick forever. Fantastic product though, very very nice pieces. HEAVY... Holy GOD is it ever heavy. I think the shipped weight was about 140lbs. Comes with PP, flywheel, disc, secondary disc.
PM me, I have some additional information that you might find useful.
