Question about 1996 Subaru Legacy
Shuddering is from centre differential (viscous coupling) There are a few additives on the market for 4wd automatics, after adding additive, you are supposed to drive several slow figure-of-eights at less then 5 mph, from full lock to full lock,this helps spread lubricant between the centre viscous coupling plates,which is where the judder comes from,This method sometimes works without using any additives-An empty parking lot is an ideal and safe fplace for figure-eights.

Is it possible your CV (constant velocity) joint is bad or going bad? Do you hear a clicking noise on turns with your shudder? A CV joint will go bad after the boot is damaged in some way as to allow the grease to escape. The boot covers the joint and is packed with grease. If the boot is damaged and dirt or moisture can contaminate the grease and the CV joint will go sooner or later. And if there is not enough grease the CV joint will go dry and wear out. Look under your car and inspect the boot. If you find black grease leaking out or damage to boot, chances are the joint is failing. Fairly easy repair to do, maybe a couple hundred at a shop and a good mechanic should be able to get it done in a timely manner that day. If you have mechanic knowledge, you may want to do it yourself. I hope this helps, good luck!
