Hardy Disk?

Apparently the stealership says I need this fixed/replaced ($700+).
What is it and is it critical?

meekus is an unknown quantity at this point
Hardy disk = a flexible rubber rag joint on the propeller shaft (aka. driveshaft).

It functions just like a universal joint (aka. u-joint) on a conventional driveshaft design.

That's a old term used on the BMW motorcycles & bubble cars. Guibo is another name. Technical term is a elastomeric torsional vibration dampener.
