Thanks for the response, I think I'll throw the stock flywheel back in there and see how that goes.

I'm so glad I found this thread. Now I just need to live closer to one of you guys so I can pay you to do this for me. Getting this done at the dealer or local shop is $$$ and I never enjoy doing business that way anyway.

So I replaced these. Subaru changed the actual the two tapered bearings while keeping the part numbers the same. They physically fit in the same place but the bearings themselves are smaller. At the same time I noticed my driveshaft was pretty much shot. I forgot to put the shim that goes between the gear and the diff in the first time and all the noises were gone except for a random wine going on and off throttle. After I put that back in my wirring noise has turned into a rattling clunking noise in 5th with the car in the air, I need to figure out what the issue is now if I screwed something else up. I'm not sure what could have happened unless the tapered race in the front fell out because I didnt take it all the way apart the 2nd time.

*doesnt make the weird rattle on the ground. I've been driving it without issue.

I think they're dealer only and that you should buy the ones that fit your car.

Bearings are bearings. As long as the size and numbers match that's what matters.I found you won't save a lot at a bearing shop. But avoid the Chinese bearings.

How did it go? Were you replacing bearings on your 2012 or another model year? I have an 08 and was wondering if the part numbers are the same.

I did R&R about a year ago, stealership qouted me around 375$, they negotiated down to 275$. I said suck it and found them for 125$ shipped on a wholesale Subaru part website. I have a 03 wrx 5spd/diff in my 93 ej20g legacy. Got the transmission from a friend for a 30pack, unfortunately someone had already swapped the center diff bearings with theirs and neglected to install the largest bearing. I drove it for a week like that unaware but definitely feeling something wrong.
The install was relatively easy, had to get one bearing pressed out. After having one bearing missing it felt much more solid, but the constant rollover noise was still there under 30mph. I suspect my center diff is still bad as the transmission only has 100k and shifts great. I ended up buying a very low mileage jdm ej20g/5speed(4.11) out of an Liberty RS for 1000$.

Honestly $275 from the stealership isnt that bad of a deal at all. Its 125 just for the parts, then another 40ish for fluid, and its still going to take them at least 2 hours to do it on a lift. Really not bad at all. Especially if your car has been rally-x'ed like mine. So much dirt in my eyes the second I touched the shift linkage.

It's a 2012 wrx. It went ok for my first time doing it. Took longer than expected but thats usually the case.

All the part numbers are the same. I used the ones a couple pages back that has the picture of all 4 bearings.
Only one of the bearings really looked bad but I replaced all 4 anyway.

The picture of the bearing and a video of the noise it was making are near the end of this thread.

Noise is completely gone now so if yours is makin a noise like in the video it is most likely the bearing.

I have an 2002 automatic subaru impreza and it is making the same noise as indicated. I went to subaru to order 4 overpriced bearings (because its an auto it makes it even harder to find parts like these), an oil seal and a gasket and it came up to $480.. decided not to. Im not sure if the automatic transmission is different, but it seemed like there are only 3 bearings in the center diff, including the one thats on the shaft. Can someone tell me how to post a picture on here so i can specify if these are the overpriced bearings i must buy ?

Wish I could tell you that was the price for labor too, but that 275$ was parts alone! Not calling it a stealership for no reason. I do all my own work, and reused my oil.

I dont see the center diff in that exploded diagram. I'm pretty sure the automatic is much different than the 5 speed. Automatics are same length as a 6speed which is longer than a 5speed.

Ohhh okay. The picture i posted is of the reduction gear.

I am confused now of what must be done. After i remove the extension case, there is the transfer drive gear, and transfer driven gear correct ? Are the bearings on these the ones that need to be replaced ?
