220000, clutch has been replaced, no sound heard when idling, other than slight rattle
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
squeal heard when changing gears, mainly from 3rd gear up, not in low gears
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 10 months ago.

is easy to engage in gear ?

unless the syncro in the trans is wearing out , how is the truck used , pulling or daily driver ?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
very easy to engage gear, mainly daily driver
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 10 months ago.

you will have to start with the clutch, pressure plate , throw out bearing inspection and go from there

i guess raising on lift and using a ear scope and listen will be best to confirm it for you , but i can hear it :)

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 10 months ago.

how many miles on clutch since replacement ?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
less than 20K
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
if throw out bearing, would it not also do it in low gears?
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 10 months ago.

yes should do in all gears , now it might be more evident in higher gears since less engine noise

not sure on this you will have to inspect it .
