It ended up being the pilot bearing. Once I painfully got the transmission undocked from the engine, the bearing was seized. After many different attempts to get the pilot out (grease, paper towels, bread, bolts, etc), I ending up cutting the pilot bearing out with a Dremel. I should have taken pictures before. The throw out bearing spun freely and looked fine but I replaced it anyway just to avoid another pain in the ass. Shitty part is....I replaced all this not even 5000 miles ago. Must say not a fan of luk clutch parts anymore...
