Clutch Questions

Well I've put on the Weber, The posi-lock, replaced a axle seal, water pump, battery and now the clutch is acting up! Is there no end? When I start out in 1st gear the clutch shakes and there seems to be a mechanical clanking coming from underneath. I have to give it pretty good rpms to get going. Shifting from 1st to 2nd is smooth as are all other up and downshifts. Whats the deal???

Try the u joints in the front..... I had that in my jeep cost me 300 to fix, but it sounds like a clanking noise, real annoying.
