Drive shaft mount or flex disk? Either could b bad. Check the mount by shaking the drive shaft -- if you can move it in the mount, the rubber is bad.

The flex disk goes between the driveshaft and the transmission (or diff, but that one rarely goes bad) -- and signs of distortion or cracking means replace it, the drive shaft can come loose if the centering sleeve goes , too.

If the flex disk is bad and you have thumping noises while driving, get a new centering sleeve, too, it will be broken and allow the driveshaft to move too much. Get the grease that goes in it, too!
