There are a variety of things that may cause your Subbie to shimmy. First is Tires out of balance or worn due to alignment. Others could be mounts, CV joints, usually clicking sound, Tie rod ends,Wheel bearing. In the severe weather recently I have had a 97 like yours that due to the duel caliper brakes one piston was sticking and had the brake pad caught at an angle.Took a little bit to find that problem But after freeing up the Caliper piston is has been back to the loving Subbie owner with no problems. First you need to establish when,where and at what speeds to narrow down the cause. Good luck and have a good day.

Is a rear diff from a 1997 subaru legacy wagen with a 2.2l inter changeable with a 1997 subaru legacy outback with a 2.5l ?


the only way you can do this is if you can identify the gear ratios from both cars with the transmission codes found on the strut tower plate.
see this list to check for matches, read it carefully its a ton of info

Can you switch a rear diff from a 1997 subaru legacy wagen with a 2.2l inter changeable with a 1997 subaru legacy outback with a 2.5l ?


the biggest draw back that you will have to check first is the ratio of the diffs you want to change. If they are not the same but will fit then you will destroy the 3rd diff in the transmission from excessive use.

Cause of noise in front differential of 1997 Subaru Legacy Outback.


there is a plug on the shaft-side of the differential. Using a ratchet remove the plug and with the engine OFF, stick your finger inside the hole and you should get fluid just below the threads of where the plug goes in.
