Took a look at the rear diff to see if the rear driveshaft was moving and it wasn't, so its got to be the center bearing. Parts are on the way for it and im trying to hunt down the BMW salesman that sold it to me to see what he can do about it, but I have a feeling this will be coming out of pocket since it is used and so old.
I hope that you are planning to replace the "guibo" while you are in there. Same amount of work, don't go back in later, etc. etc.
