Car manufacturers are looking to make vehicles lighter using more lightweight components. At the same time modern engines are becoming more powerful. More power means more strain on the lightweight components causing more vibrations.
To address this, vehicle manufacturers have replaced the ordinary crankshaft pulley with torsional vibration dampers which absorb vibrations from the crankshaft and extend the life time of other components in the drive system. They are vital in keeping the crankshaft and engine working properly, so you need replacement products of the highest quality.
