Question about 1986 Subaru RX
Probably the final drive bearing inside the trans - a bad habit with those trans - design flaw, oiled poorly. No quick fix, must tear the trans down to get to it.

I would have the transmission fluid checked to see if it needs any added and if it doesn't it sounds like a bearing going out or something. I would take the car to the dealer, since it's fairly a newer model and see if they can find the source of the problem. they are best when it comes to knowing everything about your car than any other shop around.

This is a somewhat common problem with the 04-06 MY 4x4 trucks.
The IWE vac solenoid can ingest water, and introduce it to the IWE, or can develop a problem where it does not keep constant vac on the IWE ends, and the gears hang part in ( grinding ).
You can check the IWE solenoid to make sure it will supply VAC to the IWE ( vac keeps the IWE out, remove vac, and the spring will engage it into the gears ).
You can check the vac lines to the IWE, and the solenoid, but I hate to say the IWE solenoid needs to be replaced.
Here is a link to a PDF version of the TSB with the part number for the updated IWE solenoid that the 07& 08 MY trucks have.
Here is a block diagram of the IWE layout, so you can check the vac lines. Hope it is as easy as a cracked vac line. Also check that the vent tubes are clear, and still up into the engine compartment.
