I also found a lot of replacements for bearing, damper and holding bracket, but bearing still feels ok so why go through the burdon of taking driveshaft out ... (although mounting a new bearing normally would be my choice of preference)

Yes. No need to go overkill.

I would just do the Jimi Fix. It has a long term track record and will probably outlast the engine. Just get the tension right. That just means using the correct number of pieces and the correct diameter size of hose.

I'm gonna follow-up, @ this moment i have the idea that there still is some excess rumbling between 60 and 70 km/h, so perhaps some adjusting is needed, but the real loud knocking when accelerating is completely gone :)

As if the bearing will last that long ... from the moment that seizes it will begin to spin inside the bumper ... and that wil wear the bumper which will warn me with letting the driveshaft to knock again :)
Note: i removed both seals from one side of the bearing and repacked that with grease.
