Default Rear Diff Bushing for BE

My diff is clunking and I think I need to replace my rear diff bushing, do the WRX bushings fit on the Legacy?

Also could there be anything else other than the bushing causing the clunking?

nope, they don't fit as the bushing are built into the rear subframe, whereas a wrx has them pressed into a small, rear diff support that bolts to the subframe. You also can't use WRX rear cross-member bushings, such as those by Kartboy, because the cross-member is absent on the BE/BH (if I remember my car correctly!)

If you haven't already done the swap, a good synthetic lube (I like Amsoil and Redline for rear diffs) will make things smoother. It is also possible that your diff is toast. How many miles do you have on it?

I bought all the bushings that Kartboy sells. Send him a PM, let him know what car you have and ask what fits.

I'd change your fluid first. You don't have to pay extra for shipping or bits you might not need.

If you need to change your bushings, then flanders already answered that.

Try the bushings or go to a good suby mechanic. I have no idea otherwise.

I didn't have any problems, I just felt like wasting money. Everything is much tighter.
