1. You didn't look at all because RA gears do not whine.
2. You posted in the wrong forum.
3. Your car is whining for a reason other than RA gears.

Some ra gears whine in first gear. It sounds like reverse. If you are downshifting it is going to whine a little because you are making the engine work more (higher revs)

It's an AWD thing, every Impreza I've been in, 07 2.5i, 2003 WRX, 2004 WRX, 2004 WRX STi and a 2008 WRX STi, they ALL have whined in certain gears when downshifting.
