Before summer comes around im doing some preventative maintenance on my ride. Recently (about 3 months) I've been having a squeal in one of my pulleys when I cold start. Lasts about 45 seconds -1 minute and is extremely disturbing for neighbors in the am. I'm shopping around and im leaning towards lighter components to help with throttle response but I dont want to disrupt the harmonic dampening properties of the existing crank pulley. So here are my questions
1.) Will replacing the existing harmonic dampener with a lightened (not underdrive) pulley have a negative effect on my cars harmonic balancing?
2.) If so, is there an elegant way to correct this?
3.) Is there a product you recommend for swapping out my old bushings (chassis) or should I just get OEM bushings?
If anyone has 80k plus miles of experience on a single engine with a lightened pulley I'd love to hear your input in particular but am open to any experiences. Gathering as much info as possible before I tear into my car.
