In the picture you can see the metal ring that I have secured out of the way of the rotating drive shaft. It’s normally around the bright shiny ring just aft of the universal shown. There was a rubber strip between the two. Is this just a balancing ring? I didn’t notice any difference driving at highway speeds for 6 hours. I plan to take her into the dealer to get it fixed but need a little education first. Any forum members with experience here? Thanks.
