Manual or auto trans? If manual, check fluid level. Grinding noise could be u-joint starting to fail, or even wheel bearing.

heavier oil if you are not in a cold climate. but before you do that have the oil pressure checked. We used to use a can of STP every once in a while on a motor in a dodge we had... nothing wrong with it... was just noisy.

Sounds like the differential to me, when the power drops you are probably crunching a broken piece thru the ring and pinion gears. This can be very dangerous, could lock the back wheels up while you are driving down the road and get you or someone else killed.

Are there any other possible problems, or you are just not receiving spark at all now?
The coilpack could be dead and just need replaced. If you have a voltmeter or a test light, check the wiring on both sides of the coilpack harness to make sure it is receiving power.
I don't believe Subaru used ignitors past '99, but if they did, your should be located on the firewall behind the throttle body. Make sure it's plugged in and receiving power.
Coil packs do go bad from time to time. I had to replace mine in my
'98 Impreza a while back.
