Earlier my dad and I were working on my 96 mustang, and we noticed that a part on the manual transmission driveshaft yoke.

Is it a vibration damper? What would we need to do to fix it?

It's loose and can be moved around as seen in the pictures.

It is a damper, and it can be removed without consequences! I had the exact same issue on my 97 T5. The rubber surround dry rots after a while, and the weight of the piece will shift it forward sometimes, causing a loud metallic clunk when it hits the yoke behind the tranny tailpiece. Try dropping one of the yokes off the driveshaft(either front or back), slide it off, then refasten said yoke and you're done. It didn't affect the driveshaft vibration at all!
