Driveshaft coupling? (o:

my mate has a mu and they failed him on the part if it is the same on his it was a damper . he was not going to pay for a new one that was way to expensive in his opinion so he just angle grinded the damper off and passed the wof . Not what i recommended he should do but hey if the output shaft is stuffed on his transmission i will say um yea well i said it was a bad idea to hacksaw a damper off.

I would call it a drive coupling, flex coupling or driveshaft flex joint.

Try The Mount Shop, they call them driveshaft couplings.

Seem to have a good range on their website.

if it is the one my mate had its not a coupler its a balancing divise and some have it and most dont its why no one had one and only holden had one for 500$ new from GM , he got fibrations that i can feel at 80kph now but he is now driving with it hacked off since 2 years and oil loosing on trans on to muffler it is doing since 8 years up mount ruapehu for example.
