Default harmonic balancer

My dampner is whining. I have 05 c6 and I heard this model is notorious for wobble. trying to decide which harmonic balancer to get. was looking at ATI but kind of pricey. Powerbond seems a little bit more reasonable. what brand do you c6 enthusiast that have replaced their's suggest?

I replaced mine with ATI ($400.00) but Powerbond is excellent as well.

My ATI failed about 4 months (4k miles) after it was installed.

Switched to a Powerbond and itís running flawless for the past 3 years (20k miles)

I've done a "few" HBs on LSs. Always go the Powerbond/Summit Racing over the stock OEM, or the ATI.

99% of Corvettes on this forum don't need/can't use a $500 HB even if they never failed. Just a waste of money. Save the $200 and take your "significant other" out to Ruth's Chris instead.
