manual tranny or clutch problem?

This is probably just a clutch problem...but I really would like a second opinion.

When I step off the gas and the car is still in any gear, it seems to like to buck and jolt a little bit throughout the rpm range. I'm pretty sure I need a new clutch - but I am not sure if a worn down clutch would cause this (the stang being my first manual tranny car). A friend of mine has an Accord and he said the same kinda thing is happening and he needs a new clutch too - but his doesn't jolt or buck as violent as mine does.

The clutch wasn't that good to begin with when I got the car last month, so I really don't know how it's supposed to behave with a good clutch.

Any ideas?

Mods: K&N FIPK2 CAI, Motoblue 42% UDP, Steeda Tri-Ax, next up - time for a new clutch I think and a lightweight flywheel if I can find a relatively inexpensive one...
