Bellows leaking (again) and shaking violently during spin cycle

Appliance: LG Washer WM2277HW
My Repair & Advice
Very rapid processing of order and receipt of package, exact fitment for the washing machine.
Replaced the bellows again and fixed the leak, the bellows material deteriorates and dissolves which causes leak, last time was approximately 5 years ago. Wiped the inside of the bellows the rubber is obviously dissolving. Always used HE detergent in the correct amount. Replaced dampers in hopes to prevent washing machine from shaking violently during the spin cycle, now it shakes moderately. These parts are much less expensive than replacing the washing machine but the bellows could be manufactured from a more durable material to prevent deterioration. The damper assemblies could be manufactured similarly to an automotive style gas charged shock absorber this would significantly improve control of the tub during spin cycle. NOTE this is an issue with the manufacturer of these items for this LG washing machine NOT Appliance Parts Pro.
