Arent our balancer's the same as the Vipers?

If so part number is 5037551AB. Ive looked on ebay and seen some for sell, seems dealerships can get them too.

Where have you been looking?

I tried Oriely,AutZone,Advance auto parts,Summit racing, Mine is less than 1.5" the only one i can find is 2"inside diameter. None of them seem to be keyed! Is the 04 crank normally Smaller than the rest of them?

Mine isn't keyed. They didn't come keyed. You have to do that yourself. Also, try calling tony as I recommended above. Or andy at partsonlinenetwork.com

I called jtsvp.com and he said he is looking for one. Summit racing said the viper car has a different offset than the truck the manufacturer of his said it would not work on mine. I had no luck with partsonlinenetwork either. I will be selling my truck if i ever get it fixed It is a Garage kept 04 with 25435 miles Red with fresh carnuba wax a snuglid, Magnaflo cat backs.

Fords and Chevys all over the country have 500000 plus miles with the Harmonic balancer still in tact(not coming loose)My Dodge has less than 26000 miles on it and now needs a crank because of a manufacturer defect. I would like to know how many other owners got screwd by Dodge? Does someone have a number for me? I am working on a letter to get some of my money back for the repairs.

How do you know you need a crank? I just went through this with mine. You will need a new 2004 bolt if your an 05 with the silver 3inchish bolt. There are two sizes, my 05 required the old bolt and new balancer from dodge. Balancer I believe was $180ish. Red loctite to new balancer to 150lb, book says 130ftlb. If a new balancer can be pressed on I think you might be alright. Some other folks have gone through the same thing and I've only read of one maybe two people legitimately in need of a new crank. This is just my experience hopefully others will chime in. My old balancer was kinked to the side for who knows how long. Crankshaft snout is a much harder metal than the balancer so there is a chance of the balancer taking most of the damage. From TX-good luck.
