it's also called the flex disc. It's a urethane bushing that mounts to the rear drive shaft. It absorbs vibrations and gives the car a smoother ride.

I haven't replaced mine yet, so I can't say from experiance how long it should take. I've heard it's not to bad and takes a couple of hours. I've seen a DIY some wheres. Check the FAQs section.

its not that hard

1 jack up the car
2 remove exhaust
3 remove heat shields
4 remove drive shaft
5 remove guibo bolts [you will need someone to put tranny in gear and take it out for each bolt so you can reach it]
6 install new one
7 put everything back

diy here

is your guibo cracked? It's really something that you don't change as a regular maintenance.

It's fairly easy, but you'll need two 17mm(i think don't quote me on it) open end wrenches because of clearance issues.

Hardest part will be getting the exhaust off so spray some liquid wrench or pb on the 6 nuts for a few days before you do it.

So you only dropped the exhaust and didn't remove any other components? I'm actually change out the output shaft seal along with the guibo and I've been holding it off because the amount of time it would take to remove the exhaust, heat shield, etc.

Bah, I knew I was close. My friend and I had just started the second day of working on my clutch at about 6am and we realized we didn't have the wrench to take the driveshaft off. We ended up having to wait for the hardware store to open to pick one up.
