Default Hard squeek/chirp and deceleration

Owner of a 2005 STI with 195000 miles on it.

I changed the clutch around 130k and didn't replace the front axle seals. A few months ago towards the end of a road trip the car made a quick squeek/chirp noise and noticably slowed at highway speed. It happened 4 or 5 more times; seemed to be while under load.

I put it up on the lift and didn't see anything wrong, but the trans fluid was very low. I topped off with about a quart of Motul 300 (using it since the clutch swap) and it's been quiet ever since.

This morning pulling into the parking lot it made the noise again. I didn't notice the slow-down, but i was only moving ~5mph. The noise seems like it's coming from the front passenger side. Brakes and rotors were replaced about 30k ago.

A/C was off in both cases. Time to budget for transmission work?

this link was the best i could turn up while searching, but the OP didn't have a resolution.

For anyone interested...
I took the car to Agile Automotive in Bel Air, MD on 2AUG, and they are still in the process of cracking the case and diagnosing the transmission.

So far however, i've been updated that the stock turbo is shot. Like... no repair/refurb kit is going to help.
