Clutch release bearing?

My truck has developed a nocking noise while in nutruel, goes away when I engage the clutch. I was thinking the release bearing but not sure. If it is the bearing would I be stupid to replace only that or should I go ahead and get a new clutch while I in there?


Any help would be much appreciated.

If it is that bearing. Replace the whole clutch assembly. No reason to take it all apart now. Just to have to do it again later on. But this is just my personal prefrence. I say put a south bend clutch kit in it.

Your right. I'm just not gonna like puttin that kinda dough in her right now.

What would be the the down side of going a little more budget freindly and getting a valair clutch?
