"Squeaky" Clutch

Have any of you guys ever had any issues with the clutch "squeaking"? It is definitely on the inside of the truck, sounds as if it is either the pivot point of the clutch, or the (pardon my very technical terminology) plastic piece that goes through the firewall.

The only other thing I feel is a sort of pulsation when downshifting if the RPMs end up being around 2000. This is my first diesel, so I figured that the pulsation could be normal?

But, the squeaking just started today, so I wanted to check in on here just to get some thoughts and hopefully put my mind at ease that all I need is some WD-40 lol.

yep, mine does it, I'm assuming that it's the rod from the clutch to the hydraulic reservoir that's sliding through a rubber grommet that's squeaking.. and mine does the same pulsing/vibration when over about 2000 rpm.
