Default Driveshaft Guibo / Flex Joints / Bushings / rubber piece with 6 holes in it

Well my front guibo is falling apart... thats the weird rubber bushing thing that connects the pieces of the driveshaft... there are two on the SC's...

I've found some on ebay, but I'm always looking for an upgrade, so, if a part can be upgraded while it's being replaced, I'm all for it...

question - has anyone found aftermarket replacements for these? I realize they lasted a long time, but I'd love to find a solid or semi-rigid replacement

chunks missing...

I would imagine driveline vibrations, and I get some, though I kinda attributed that to worn motor mounts...
