SBC clatter

I have a south bend clutch and flywheel in my truck and from day one have had a super loud clatter from the clutch while either lugging in a gear some in low RPM or in nuetral with the clutch released. They said that you will experience some clatter due to the upgraded springs but this is LOUD. My buddy just put the same clutch and flywheel in his 96 and you cant hear a thing. Dont take this the wrong way- I am NOT blaming south bend for this issue and have been very happy with the performance of the clutch. I am just curious as to what would cause a clutch to create this much noise? Has anybody else experienced anything like this? FYI I now have over 19,000 miles on the clutch and it has not changed.

So it must be a defect somehwere. That seems to be what everybody has said....
