Default 6spd grind while at speed

I have an 08 Legacy Spec B that while shifting from 4th to 5th, will grind after driving for a while. Sometimes it will grind when downshifting from 4th to 3rd. I'm wondering if it's clutch or syncros?

The good news is that it will probably last quite a while longer, yet. Mine has had the grind for 3 years, and a little double-clutching downshifting into 4th does wonders.

On the other hand, I'm starting to have trouble getting it into gear after a cold start, and there were metal flakes in my last tranny oil flush. I've scheduled a rebuild after the new year.

Gear dependent grind wouldn't be the clutch, bud.

Synchros or shift linkage.

I guess it's a good thing I got that warranty
