Sounds like bearings, get it checked first.

Seeing that my car is non turbo would it make a difference if i used the subaru transmission fluid and diff oil or the red line??

^^^ subaru recommends to ATF HP for the legacy's in particular bcuz the tiptronic transmission is very sensitive to viscosities. On other forums, people use redline, amsoil and whatnot...but those oil companies do not endorse such action. I went and researched this myself. Stick to OEM as best as u cud :wink:

It's a group effort (LGT) we learn a lot from each other... :wink:

There are alternatives but as jadakiss said it's better to stay with the OEM.

5AT SUBARU ATF K0410Y0700
Alternative
Idemitsu:
Aporoil ATF HP
Castrol: Transmax J
Pennzoil Quakerstate:
Pennzoil ATF-J

Take a look at this thread:

i.e. the Idemitsu..and its considerable cheaper than the subaru ATF HP...but as the guys said..stick with OEM if u can help it
