5.0 vibration damper

i noticed today that the rubber that lives between the weight ring(?) and body has started to slide out. can i just use a jaw puller and pull the ring off, reseat the rubber, and press the ring back on?

i dont know if the ring has started to spin, if its loose or anything right now but i really dont like the way it looks. are the weight rings set on in corralation with the crank in some regards? is there some way i can check to make sure it hasnt shifted or seperated?

Some dampers are injection molded, not pressed together. I would hesitate to pull one apart and try and reseat anything. Visit http://www.damperdoctor.com/ - I bought a rebuilt unit from them last year for about $60, looked like brand new and quick turn around time.

It's just a Jeep, and if you don't wheel it once in a while, it's not even that.
