http://www.subaruwrx...ory=235#details Has anyone here used these kits. I am looking at a legacy that has had one installed already and am wondering if it is really as good as it sounds? Thanks

I have used them, they work just fine. I just dislike having to buy a new one of their bearings/kits when I do the next clutch on the car but its a minimal expense compared to a new transmission case.

Just installed one in my dad's legacy. One of the spring clips had broken on his throw out bearing and it had rattled for the past 60k miles. The throwout bearing had worn an 1/8th inch groove into the snout of the transmission, put the snout kit in while I did the clutch and it works great. The new retainer spring that comes with the kit is a different style, and better in my opinion.

I'd say it's a non-issue, and how Subaru should have done it in the first place (and did on the older 4x4 transmissions).
