Steering wheel vibrating really bad all the sudden


you have an issue with a front tire more than likely. or could be the front rotor. I would bet my last breath its' tire or break/rotor related. Maybe even a wheel bearing but it usually doesn't cause vibration in steering wheel.

How do you change a rotor on a 1997 subaru legacy


Jack the car up and place a jack stand under the car for safety. Remove the tire and wheel from the car. Remove the caliper from the caliper mount (2 bolts on front wheels one bolt on rear wheels), secure the caliper out of the way with a wire, then remove the caliper mount. Then pull the rotor from the hub, if this is difficult take a hammer and tap the rotor until it is loose. Reverse procedure to complete installation.

Check wheel bearing.
Check backing brake plate , sometimes it's bended and touching brake rotor.
If wheel bearing is bad , you may have same effect with backing plate , brake rotor touch backing plate.

How do you remove front rotors on a 2007 subaru legacy


Remove wheel, Brake caliper then the Brake caliper support bracket. Then Rotor slides right off of Wheel studs. Remember to support vehicle properly, and to make sure brake calipers are fully compressed before removing. After caliper is removed try try to support it out of the way. Then on the bake of the brake caliper support bracket there are 2 bolts. Remove them and the rotor will have room to be removed from drive axle hub. Hope this helps and have a great day.

1993 Subaru Legacy Wagon: Bumpy Brakes


Your '93 Legacy was one of the first cars to provide ABS as standard. If your ABS is activating, you'll feel a fast pulsing feel when braking, is that what you experience? 
If it's more of a brake pedal movement that changes frequency with the cars change of speed, and when moving slowly it feels slower and more pronounced, you likely have a warped rotor. 
An ABS issue should be checked out by a Subaru mechanic. If it's the rotor, then the offending rotor will have to be machined or replaced. If you can identify the rotor that's warped (with the car on stands, rig up a steel ruler so that it touches the rotor, and spin the wheel by hand. If it touches intermittently, then the rotor is warped) you may be able to remove it yourself (buy a workshop manual for instructions) and bring it to a brake shop and have it machined. This is far cheaper than they doing the whole job. 
However, if you're not comfortable with these suggestions, then have a brake shop do it for you. This is an important safety device (obviously) and worth the money to have it done correctly. Early Legacy's are pretty much bullet-proof and last forever, so the investment will be worthwhile.
Hope this helps.
