Exclamation What's the difference of flex joint and flex disc?

I have an 86 325e and it's violently vibrating. I jacked it up to take a look at it. I looked in the manual I have and the part I need is the flex coupling. I called some local shops and they are calling the part two different names. Each name has a different part number Flex disc (#26-11-7-511-454) and flex joint (#103-2223). They each have different prices and I'm not sure which part I need, but they look exactly the same.

Here's where I went: The first website has both parts flex joint and flex disc.
