Hi All,


I have a 2000 Outback Limited sedan and I blew the transmission today ... actually blew the front Diff.  Anyway I found a 2000 Forester transmission and I have found mixed information about compatibility with my car.


I can tell you what I know and maybe someone here can help.  Thanks.


The Forester tranmission part number TZ1A3ZC2AA-P8

it may be slightly different, but it will bolt in and run just fine.


it has the needed 4.44 final drive ratio .

Weird, all of a sudden there are a hatfull of front diff failures.


Mine was from about 150,000 miles of high-speed and occasional really high speed and rough duty service, pinion bearing started whining and after many months started sounding much worse very quickly.
