Question clutch issue?

Hey, I"m new to the forum and have a question I hope you guys can help me on. My truck is a 99 F350 dually, 4x4, 121,000 miles, extended cab, 7.3 diesel, 6 speed manual, original owner and it's all stock (except a chip) and I tow a 12,000 lb horse trailer. Original problem was really bad vibration when in reverse. impossible to back up with out putting it in 4 wheel low. Ford dealer installed a new clutch kit, pilot bearing, and turned the fly wheel. It stopped the problem for about 2000 miles and started again. Now they say the flywheel is in spec but replacing it might stop the problem. I am more inclined to think it is suspension related, maybe transmission mount or even weak rear springs. Any ideas? Thanks for your ideas.

First off, welcome to the .ORG. Second, you are probably new to this, but posting in the right section will yield you better responses.

Third, the problem lies in the drive line. At some point whatever parts they replaced fixed the problem. Bad springs or a bad mount would have constantly given you the problem. Although to me it sounds like a bad pressure plate or at least the vibration does.
