    That piece is called an adapter. Hopefully it's cracked and not the transmission case. The reason for the crack is usually the driveshaft. Bad ujoint or the shaft is out of balance. Make sure you get the shaft checked when you fix the crack or it will crack again. The adapter can be purchased from the dealer or you can find it cheaper here from the GM parts guys.
