Just some random subaru online parts dealers. ~100 per side. Seems high? Any suggestions for a more reasonable price.

Damn, I think they were 38 each for my outback. Trans mount was 28 I think. Mine came from the local subaru dealer. If they really are that much, yeah I'd probably go aftermarket too...

Check these two sites out, I like the 1st one for best prices

I think I paid 250ish for the full set of group-n mounts including the tranny from some place.

IMO around 100 bux a pop is what they normally cost. Some dealers are greedy and mark them up all the way to 250, but you can find em around 100

ebay built is stepping up his game.


look at that tilted front plate, and front bumper quick release, and it's now slammed, and blacked out headlights!





he also cut away all the mesh material on the grill so it looks silly and incomplete now.

Default Broke Rear Diff in Outback

So.... I just broke the rear diff in the Outback XT, 2005. I can put it in gear at idle with the E-brake set, and the driveshaft that goes to the rear is spinning, and the axles are not. And it drives like a FWD car and makes bad noises from the rear....

I'm guessing new diff time. What are my options though, just replace it? Any way to upgrade it?

Apparently 3K RPM brake boost launching it on a prepped surface is a bad idea... Who knew?

He has an auto, so I think its less effort. Since IIRC the auto driveshaft will bolt to the r180 or does it need the holes ovaled slightly. And then he needs to contact that dave guy and buy some hybrid axle bearing cages and some sti axles and build himself some hybrid axles.

What is required to do it?

Ovalizing some holes I can do, that's easy. If that's the hardest thing to make it work I'm in. If there's a writeup anywhere that says what's needed/how to do the swap I'd love to see it.

Yeah I think there's a difference in driveshaft on the later years.
Not sure about the ovaling part. I think hardest part would be the axles, you'd need to create "hybrid" axles or change uprights and use sti axles.

With what pat has done with his miata. Taking apart a couple CVs and putting them back together with different bearing cages is a piece of cake.

Well I just found this online:

Outback XT Automatic 5spd
1- 3.540
2- 2.264
3- 1.471
4- 1.000
5- 0.834
final 3.583

Then I found this:
3.166 / 1.882 / 1.296 / 0.972 / 0.738 / 4.444FD - '05-'09 USDM Outback 2.5XT

Gotta do more digging, but I think the 4.444 FD is correct.

3.583 kills your R180 aspirations I think. Wait I think thats 06-07 sti.

Found this too:

3.272FD - '05/06 LGT auto
3.083FD - '07-09 LGT auto
3.583FD - '05/06 OBXT auto
3.272FD - '07-09 OBXT auto

But I haven't found a definitive source yet. Too bad I can't count the diff on my own car since it's broke. Well if I tore it down then I could but can't do that right this moment.

Based on what I'm finding, Subaru used a lot of different ratios. And I think I have a 3.583 FD, maybe.

Yeah I don't mind an afternoons work and a couple hundred bucks if that puts a bomb-proof diff in the car. But I guess I gotta figure out what I have before I can figure out if it's possible to buy a R180 with the same Final Drive as what I have.

Maybe I can call subaru and ask them? Dunno if they would know, but maybe.

Wait a minute, Subarus use the same R160/R180/R200 series differentials used in the Nissan/Infinity products? This is relevant to my interests, the R200 is a swap for the incredibly fragile and expensive differential in my vintage Triumph. https://www.goodparts.com/shop/index.php?categoryID=16

A little reverse engineering might be fun.

I know you don't have the 4.44
but don't keep up on auto trim specs so can't tell you for sure which you do have

only 160 and 180
and what makes subaru's fun for me is the awesome parts interchangeability. almost everything is plug and play.
I've never seen anyone do a R200. People running 9's with the 180, that's good enough for me

Well I think I have the 3.583. So I'll check in a bit and see if any STI models came with that gear ratio. If not, then I assume I'm SOL and putting a stock diff in the car.

Still kinda sad I've killed a bottom end, turbo, center diff, and now rear diff in my daily...
