Why fix it if it's not broken. Although it is true that it doesn't take much to slip a balancer, it is not that common on most street cars, but if you want to be safe, summitracing.com has many different companies, and they all give you a rundown of the product.

I would look for a 10,000 rpm fluid balancer with a sfi rating of 18.1 or better, ive seen a cuople i think www.catpep.com or hawk-racing makes one for that price. And just because its not a big name brand dont think its not any good if it is sfi rated youll be ok.

If you don't need the SFI rating, there is a Streetdamper that doesn't cost as much, but is way better than a stock one...
