Within the next year, I'm considering buying a corvette c6 (with the ls3), however I've noticed some reports about how unreliable the harmonic balancer is. I have some inquiries regarding it.

Will this problem recur if the non-OEM parts are used to remedy it?

How long will it be until I have to have it fixed again if it happens again?

Are there any more frequent problems I need to be aware of?

ATI super damper and done. Not cheep though about $1100 dollars to have a shop install. Most corvette shops will steer you in that direction if your are replacing the harmonic balancer. Dealerships will use OME unit. Oh welcome to DC.

Buy it and keep an eye out for a wobble or belt misalignment when that happens replace it with a good damper. If all you do is cruise the car it may last the life of the auto. If you drive it hard then you might end up with an issue. Other than that they are rock solid cars and a lot fun for the value.
