Default Fan clutch when replacing water pump?

'07 1500 4.7L 4x4. Boufght used w/100k miles

Has anyone had experience with the fan clutch? The Haynes manual recommends replacing the clutch when replacing the water pump but I'd rather not spend if it isn't really necessary.

Then again, perhaps it's the fan clutch making the noise. I can't pinpoint the source of the growling noise without losing fingers, but it sounds like water pump bearing.

Thanks

I'd pull the W/P first and check it out...not that hard to get to...about an hour on my 05 1500 not sure if it's any harder on the 07. If it is bad i would replace w/p, fan clutch and serp. belt...parts total for me was under 150.
