Fluid dampners

I'm am in the process of gathering parts for some maintenance that needs to be done on my e99. Water pump, melling oil pump, hoses and belt. Have this annoying leak at the LPOP and a small dribble every now and then from water pump. Question is, are the fluid dampeners better than the OEM rubber ones? I figure like anything else once I remove the dampener it will have a groove cut in it from the front seal so why not replace with something better since I have to replace anyway.

I have used a fluid dampner only twice. Once on a dodge cummins with a few mods and another time on a 4.0 chrysler inline 6 in a 2000 jeep cherokee bored and stroked to a 4.7. It definitely made a difference to me in the overall "smoothness" of the engines. I don't remember seeing any major performance gains but at idle and low range rpms I could really tell a difference.

Keep in mind though inline 6's are more prone to crankshaft distortion than a V-8 and I have no experience running it on a v engine. So i couldn't tell you what it would feel like on your truck.

Don't worry about a groove here is a replaceable race on the damper where the seal rides on it.
