Clutch was replaced according to dealer when I purchased it less than 10k miles ago, learned to drive stick with it tho..but it's been doing this roughly 3 weeks after purchase. Dealers owner is a decent friend so I trust it was a new clutch

Doesn't mean they put a new TOB in it though, although they should have. Mine is doing the same thing.

There are a few cars out there that constantly have this issue, and ours is one of them. If its just a slight squeak better to live with it than pull the tranny just to get 5-10k of quiet miles. If the TOB grinds or your clutch travel isn't smooth then the bearing isn't doing it's job. Try adjusting the cable, doing the freeplay mod, or using a Maximum Motorsports clutch pedal height adjuster. It basically does the same thing as resting your foot on the pedal does.

Is the ford racing heavy duty really worth it? Will it last long and take more abuse?

The ford racing tob is the only one to use. The rest are known for issues. I have probably 10 spec,centerforce,ect tob laying around my shop from replacing with ford racing before installing a new clutch. I never take the chance in anything other than the ford racing bearing

I just replaced my clutch throw out bearing and pilot bearing about 2000 miles ago and mines already making the squeaking noise. Dont be surprised if the squeak comes back within a few thousand miles after replacing the throw-out bearing. Its a noise you have to live with. :/ I have a stage 1 exedy racing clutch too

I am going to do the clutch freeplay mod today heard wonderful things about it just that slight bit of pressure changes it all, hell if it goes every 2000 miles i rather replace the tob all the time. I cant stand noises coming from my cars.

I have a new (~1,200 miles) Ford Racing throw out bearing and mine will make that exact squeak or chirp sound if it is just barely touching the pressure plate. If it hasn't made that noise and is now starting to, it could be wear has made it slightly start to touch the pressure plate. If it is wear, it will get worse gradually. It might end up being screechy loud...like this or wobbly knocking sound . These are worse case examples of noises. Do you have an aftermarket clutch quadrant or the stock setup and cable?
