    so I noticed my truck squeaking at idle, and when I press the clutch in just barely it goes away. Its a very annoying squeak like a lose belt. What is the remedy to this because it is driving me ****ing crazy. Also the gears engage just fine, my shifts are smooth and there is no slippage.

    I also have the URD sleeve kit and mine has started squeaking. It doesn't bother me, but I was curious if anyone knows if it's going to mess anything up if I ignore it?

    The way Toyota designed the bearing is for it to completely separate from the tines of the pressure plate. The tolerance is very small. My understanding of what actually causes the squeak is the input shaft wears down to a point that the bearing is able to wobble just enough to make intermittent contact with the pressure plate (The bearing could be wearing in the same fashion accomplishing the same thing). The sleeve is supposed to eliminate the wearing issue on the shaft but the bearing may still fail as the OEM one does. I think anytime you've got metal on metal it's not something you can completely ignore, but I've heard of many people driving with the squeak for a very long time with no further issues. That being said, I've also heard of the quill snapping off completely, hence the creation of the U-Fix hydro bearing by URD. So in other words, my answer to your question is as clear as mud.

    My squeak is minor at 85k miles (not sure what previous owners swapped..) but I am just waiting for something to fail in this fated 6spd....
