SOURCE: Driveshaft yoke balancer
I had the same problem and removed the balancer from the drive shaft this morning. I put the drive shaft back on, and drove the truck around all day, highway, city, stop and go, there were no problems, and the noise was gone, and I had no vibrations at all. So you should be fine if you remove the balancer.

Most balancers have a very tight fit to the crank. You will need to use a puller to remove it. If purchasing one dosn't seem economical to you, some auto parts stores rent out specialty tools for free.

There is a panel inside the wheel well that you can take off that gives you perfect access to the harmonic balancer. A special tool is required. i had my dad make one because he has access to whatever he needs at the factory. but you can get them at the dealer. i have no clue how much they cost. I can't see any way of doing it without the special tool. after you get the tool its pretty simple to get off. it takes alot of force to break the bolt loose though. i used the handle off my jack as a cheater bar. hope this helps...

To install: Do not hammer the damper into place as damage may result to the damper or engine.
