Really bad whining/scraping noise when depressing clutch pedal

It sounds like a throwout bearing to me. 2004 5.7, 45K Miles. I can feel vibration in the clutch pedal when depressed. Has gotten steadily worse and I feel that failure is imminent.

2 Questions. What is the recommended replacement? Does anyone know the part number(s) of both the OEM and any aftermarket bearings. I can't seem to find any.

Clutch is working fine right now, just VERY noisy only when the pedal is depressed.

The vibration might be the pressure plate failing even though the clutch is working fine. I would replace the whole clutch pack and throw-out bearing while you have it apart.
