E34 530i manual drive train repair question(s)

Hey all. Well I bought the 95 530 I was looking at! $1000, Yeah!

Anyway, I do believe the center driveshaft bearing is shot, possibly the guibo as well. I have not put it in the air to get under it, but with help from this forum, that is the e-diagnosis. I wanted to know what should be replaced in the drive train area since I'll be replacing a few things anyway. Such as any preventive maintenance items or just general suggestions in replacing the guibo and bearing.

Note: Its a M60, 5-speed with 162k. Also the left-front motor mount, right-side tie-rod assembly, front sway bar links, exhaust hangers and clutch have recently either been repaired or replaced according to the previous owner.

Thanks all!

There are two things no man will admit he cannot do well: drive and make love.
