Unhappy New-to-me 08 WRX wagon, clutch shudder after replacing trans mount

Still have to make a few posts before I can post to the tech forum, so I'm putting this here. Just picked up a low-mileage 2008 WRX wagon. Had to replace an axle with a torn boot, which caused a vibration during heavy acceleration. Found a post about weak transmission mounts and new axles not mixing, so I put in a Group N transmission mount. Now when I let out out the clutch at take off in 1st gear I get a shudder, almost bucking. Anyone run into this and found a good resolution? No problems in other gears, I would almost suspect that the clutch friction material was wearing unevenly. Any help is appreciated.

Welcome to the forum. Those posts you need to make can be made anywhere on any other thread. just comment on a few threads to get to 3. It's not difficult.

As for the shudder, it's possible that your mounts or donezo. It makes sense that it wouldn't be in other gears, since you're going from a dead stop to moving.

Have you replaced the axle? How old is the clutch?

Thanks for the response! I'll root around in the other forums and see if I find anyone else with a similar issue. After more driving I'm starting to suspect that it may be in the differential. It all started after putting in a new axle.
