    Look at the rubber ring on the balancer.If there are any cracks or swelling it needs to be replaced.I just priced one at napa for $85.
    Is your pully on the balancer made from 1 piece stamped steel?The later models are made from 2 pieces a steel connected with rubber.If that is bad it will make your belts vibrate bad.
