So I'm driving home tonight with the cruise control on and all of a sudden I heard noise almost like I ran something over and it hit the bottom of the truck but it was too long of a sound and by the trans. So the nose lasted like 5 seconds, then pulling up to a toll I noticed the clutch pedal was weird feeling and you can hear a squealing when I push it down. Now when I.got home I pushed it down with the truck off and it felt normal, turn the truck back on and it feels weird again and squeals a bit. Any ideas

I'm thinking it could be the throw out bearing

Definitely could be throw out bearing. Pull your inspection cover and shine a light up in there to see if it has come apart or if you see anything abnormal looking.

so i pulled the cover, found two thin black pieces of a plastic and about 5 ball bearing hanging out in the bottom of the cover so I'm assuming it was the throwout bearing

I'd be on the phone with valair making them send me a new one for free. They have this thing called a warranty. :D

Sucks. Company like that should know how word gets around on these forums. That level of customer (non-)service just doesn't (or shouldn't) float these days.
