Possible rear diff issue ( I Hope)
« on: February 23, 2012, 06:10:26 PM »
OK, so on a spirited start, I think I may have blown my rear diff.  Clunked when I took off, and the car is "hopping" a bit when I turn; visual inspection does not show any issues, but there is a almost a metal on metal rubbing sound when driving forward coming from what sounds to be the center or rear part from under the car.  Car shifts with out issues.

Tell me what I already know , or how I don't know how screwed I am .  Ill dump the fluid form the rear diff this weekend to hopefully confirm that .

Anyone have a rear diff for an 06 wrx , or know of a place that I can get beefed up gears for it ?
It feels like a koala bears just crapped a rainbow in my brain!

dylan, it's either the rear diff or the center diff. hard to know for sure without getting my paws on it.

call the shop tomorrow and maybe we can talk some more about specifics.
