Red face Power Stroke Clutch noise

I have a question for all who own a power stroke diesel, 1997 with a 5 speed manual trans.
After I tow my enclosed trailer, 3500#, about 15 to 20 miles and have to stop and then go again, there is such a loud noise when I am releasing the clutch.
The clutch is not slipping and I can shift without any problem into the next gear but the noise is there until I get up to 10 to 15 mph.
Today I was told by a parts store that the 97 Ford with the power stroke has a two (2) piece fly wheel that has caused problems. And all the new clutch kits come with a one (1) piece fly wheel.
Has anyone had such a problem and what problems will I encounter changing the clutch. I will be doing the job myself.
The cost for the clutch kit which includes the following parts, fly wheel, pilot bearing, throw-out bearing, clutch plate, disc, and bolts is $450. Sounds like a good price.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Joe Pel

while it is VERY possible that the dual mass flywheel is making noise, the more common reason for noise while a clutch is engaged is the throughout bearing....Problem is, if your gonna be in there anyway, might as well do the whole job......

and 450 dollars, including a flywheel is a pretty good price....
