Most likely it could put some unwanted stress on the transmission output with all that slapping around. For 40 bucks you should replace it.

Not too bad. It goes pretty quick once you get enough force on the bolts. There's a good write up at pelicanparts.com

its very simple, especially when u have dont it many times.. not the guibo itself.. but stuff that requires the same first step.

drop the exhaust, then the heatshield, then the center drive shaft support, ( i think thats what its called) then there guibo, there are nuts on the back by the way..

and while ur there replace ur center bearing
