that is so great.

i am getting ready to replace my differential AND my valve cover gaskets.

You wouldn't by some chance need to also do a valve adjustment while you were in there, would you?

Well if you have an 01 Outback or other and you get a bonk at take off or turns this is what to look at. Almost feels like a rear end slip or skipping. I think this is also what may be setting off my VDC light. Once you get going noise is gone and car drives fine.

 

 

I get that THUD on my 97 I have learned to ignore it.

Here are the 49191 Nolathane inserts I purchased:

 

 

Awesome. Where did you buy your inserts? I have only seen them for $80+

 

By the way, I live very close to you. :D

Hey guys, i just did this too. Had to trim mine the same.  The bottom of the new insert is kinda bulging out a tiny bit, but i just tightened the bolts and called it good. Thanks for the info above!! The shop was trying to charge me almost $700 for this repair and it took me a whole 15 minutes to complete. 10 or 11 of the 15 was trying to find my sharp razor to trim.  Took it for a test drive and it sure does make a big difference.

I drive a 2001 Outback wagon 3.0 LL Bean  I used Whiteline part number KDT927. Also, did you all tighten your bolts to 50 or 55 ftlbs?

 

I'll add photos when i re learn how to do that.
