Drive shaft bearing

Do any of you guys in here know what that bearing is called that is attached to the passenger side axle. It has a bracket around it, and connect to the shaft that comes right out of the tranny. I need to replace that, seems to be the culprit of my long time humming noise that i've had. I was just wondering if any of you knew the name of that part or even the Part #, and also if any of you have had problems with this part. I know SVT's had a few issues with that bearing but i've also heard that they wear out especially when you've had your car lowered. Any help is appreciated...thanks.

Working here at Ford, i have never seen where its serviced seperately from the axle. I have tried to find one but have never found that bearing by itself.

^^^Good idea.
In fact, I should just stick a link in the "SVT How To" thread directing everyone to the SVTOA TSB thread.

2000-2003 Focus - Noise from right halfshaft support bearing.

Some 2000-2003 Focus vehicles may exhibit a noise from the right halfshaft support bearing. Engineering has developed a new halfshaft support bearing bracket to reduce bearing noise. If the noise is determined to be coming from the bearing, replace the bearing (YS4Z-3K093-AA), bearing bracket assembly (see parts chart below), bearing retainer (YS4Z-3N324-AA), and retainer nuts (W520102-S309).
