I am likely swapping a damaged Transmission  from my 1993 Subaru legacy wagon LS AWD with 2.2l and 4 spd auto trans. I am having trouble finding  what years/ makes would be an acceptable donor. If  possible I am wanting to grab everything from the donor car, bolt up, flush refill and go. Also wondering if by chance any  members  have  suggested salvage yard in Central Kentucky? ( Campbellsville/ E town area)


Any replies and help would be appreciated. Thanks so much!

found a place in Washington that shipped me a 50k Japanese market trans and differential  for a fair price. My Subaru is happy once again!

AWD right?

the following info is for AWD auto trans.

the auto trans that is compatible with your 93 is 92 - 94 legacy, non-turbo or  91 - 94 lego turbo.

it is plug and play.

no worries.


for a FWD auto trans you can use 90 - 97 legacy or impreza.


look for used parts here:



sort by zip code to see what is close.

you will have to search each year separately.

Ended up grabbing a JDM trans that was modern, and fit, but was geared different. I just had to grab the rear differential with it. worked out well. and under $600 for both plus freight shipping. www.foreignengines.com
