I had to replace the front coupler on my driveshaft. A big contributor to driveshaft coupler failure is motor mount failure. The mounts get weak and the engine vibrates more than it should and that's passed on to the couplers. Those plate mounts tend to rot out and get mushy as the rubber ages. The front ones are very expensive and only available from JD. They can still look OK from the top but often are cracked on the bottom and not doing a good job of keeping the engine in it's place. 

Those are on the list as well as the driveshaft couplers. See, i'm learning new stuff already!! :beerchug:
