Harmonic Balancer?

Does a 2005 Edge 4.0 have a harmonic balancer? I have a vibration that I am trying to pinpoint and the symptoms of a bad balancer seems logical in my case. If not it may be a bad mount? Or seperate pulley problem? This vibration is present at all times but REALLY is evident when i hit 65 mph. I've ruled out tire issues, so its gotta be engine or suspension.

For the most part , all engines have a harmonic balancer on the front of the crankshaft.
If the vibration is generally when you are moving , I suggest removing the driveshaft and checking for a bound up u-joint.
If it is mainly at speed , check the shaft for a missing balance weight. They are usually welded toward one end of the driveshaft on the outside, they have been known to come off.

if your harmonic balancer has failed, the truck wont start. Atleast this is what happened to me. 500$ later, it worked -.-
