Thank you for your reply downy.
But I figured out how to change the damper, DUH, wasn't hard at all! I changed it with relative ease, albeit hitting the gym set when the ramps slid forward because I pushed the brake too hard. But my avantgard grill held up well!!
The vibration is about 80% improved. There is still a very very sligh vibration between 50 and 60 though, which is probably due to the need of that "special" balancer I can do at shell. We'll see if I end up doing it though.
In any event, it is vastly improved and old damper was useless. Probably never changed on the car before. You could pull and push on it with no resistance. I feel less of the bumps in the road in the wheel too.
Thank you everyone. Another successful "adventure" you all have helped and guided me with!
