Default Growling noise when clutch let out

My stock f 350 make a noise when you first let out on the clutch but after it gets a load on it it goes away.

Probably. Engine vibrations going into the tranny and shaking the bearings a bit. It's normal.

yes it sounds like a bearing going out, and it is stock clutch, been doing this for a long time, and hasnt gotten any worse, kinda thought it might be a broken clutch spring.

stock clutches do it. they all do it. if it was a broken clutch spring you probably wouldn't have a clutch.
