Clutch noise?

Finally got my new to me YJ out of the shop with fuel system issues, but now I fear I have a new issue.

When the clutch is engaged, there is a type of high pitch squealing. Almost sounds like a loose belt, but it does have to do with the clutch.

Started this after a somewhat quick stop from about 50mph.

Anyone have any ideas?

'91 YJ w/ 4.0 and 5 speed.

Sounds like your throw out bearing. Worst case senario your bearing for the input shaft in your tranny. Not common but have seen it.

I need to clarify. It happens when the clutch is barely depressed and all the way depressed. No noise in between or when fully released.

What I could find on the throwout was that it makes the noise at all other times.
