First shop diagnosis confirmed my hunch that the front diff is toast on my 01 Forester. Quote for installation of used transmission was crazy.
Anyone near me with transmission swap experience up for a Saturday or Sunday fun day? All the beer and food you could consume plus some bucks for your expertise!
I'm mostly of up for the challenge (although the mrs is trying to rule against me). I had the EJ22 out of my old gen 2 Legacy, but no transmission work yet. Having an experienced pilot to help this co-pilot along would definitely help.
