this is a rubber-compound connection between the drive shaft and diff

like anything rubber, it deteriorates with heat, time, ozone, torque cycles, etc.

unfortunately you have to pull the exhaust to get at it (like just about everything else under the car)

had mine done recently at 45k -- it didn't look nice

This is probably an easy job for an indy shop.

This is called the guibo joint
