driveshaft harmonic balancer

First, I've done some searches on the driveshaft harmonic balancer without any luck but maybe I didn't use the right search words.

What is its purpose and do I need to use it when I go to a SYE/CV conversion?

Thanks

It helps reduce driveline vibes... they came with 241OR transfer case on Rubicon TJs.

I assume that is what you have. If so, then you don't need an eliminator kit since your transfer case doesn't have a slip yoke. I went with a CV driveshaft without keeping the balancer. Allows for a longer driveshaft and no vibes.

Actually its a 2001 Sport with the slip yoke. I've heard of them being on the Rubi's but not anything else.

So from what i have read in previous posts, newer TJ's you can pull the rear driveshaft out without losing all of yer fluid, older models you cannot, so why would anyone with a newer TJ need a SYE?

Well if you were me and snapped that output shaft in half then its the cheaper route. Plus its shorter and give a better angle even on my jeep with no lift.
