That's the same as the rest... it is the bushing material and construction that I mean. The STi, for example, has, at a minimum, three of those bushings reinforced with inserts.
Reinforceable bushings can be identified by sight, they have holes in them. Those holes, made for compliance, allows unwanted drivetrain movements as a consequence. My curiosity is simply... are the BRZ's diff bushings the same as OEM on other Subaru's, or a better one specific, part number-wise, to the BRZ. There's where details in a service/parts manual come in.
