1997 Legacy GT 2.5 - 150,000 miles.
Just had the HEAD GASKET replaced (Rrraaarrr!) and I am out of money....

Three days ago, I replaced the two rear tires with two tires from a different manufacturer.
Soon, the car exhibited the Satanic Torque Bind.
(shuddering, feels like the axel will drop)
I drove on freeways for approx. 150 miles like that. Problem got worse and worse.

Today, I replaced the two tires, so now have ALL 4 identical manufacturer/size/pressure (35 psi)

The TB symptom has quieted down when starting from stop and going in a straight line. HOWEVER, if I slowly TURN left or right, the symptom is still there, strongly.

Thank YOU for the time and solutions! ~~ ~~
PLEASE HELP because my back is against a wall here...

1) Have I ruined my clutch packs? - How can I tell?

2) Given that there is still SHUDDERING at slow speeds in turns after making the tires identical, can I reasonbly expect that I will find a solution to this issue, outside of opening up the transmission, replacing the housing liner, or something worse?

3) Are there any LIMITS to driving the car with the FWD fuse inserted for FWD only driving?

4) The mechanic says the tran.fluid is fine.. but others on this list have posted that changing the ATF can be part of the solution.

5) Any other potential solutions?

THANK YOU SO MUCH ! Subby's rock! (until they don't..)
