What exactly is this part? I know the rubber bushing surrounding this part is shot, but is this a serious issue or somewhat normal...? I don't think I experience driveshaft vibrations, but its hard to tell on country roads as they're all rough. Also, my rear is lowered 2" by drop shackles and I read those are bad because they don't correct pinion angle and the slip yoke gets pushed into the trans...can someone send me a picture of their stock truck with the proper slip yoke and pinion angle? I know I probably post too many times on this forum with things that seem ridiculous, but I figured that you guys are older than me and more experienced and I can trust the information given on this forum, so please don't get frustrated with me. Thank y'all for your time.

ITSA basically a dampener for vibration. One of old rangers had one and it fell off Sean for years without it
