For anyone who's done this on a 99GT, does the viscous coupling unit look like this?

Found one at a good price on eBay but not sure if it's the right part or not... cheers

How many litres required to do gearbox and rear diff?
Is the Nulon Smoothshift 75w90 any better than the redline combo that everyone raves about?

My centre diff needs sorting out. The quote on a VC refurbishment is $1,400 - which is more than I'd like to spend - so I'm planning to source my own VC (~$620 delivered) and just pay labour for replacement (apparently about 4hrs worth).

Alternatively, looks like you can get a complete centre diff from wreckers for as low as $150 - reckon it's worth the hassle / risk?

I'm having trouble determining which phase/MY forester I've got and which VC I need (as asked above). 1998 build date but apparently a 99 release? Can somebody help out this noob please?

VIN = JF2SF5KD3XG015780

I just sold my old 5spd for $300 complete. Around 100k kms from an 04/05 XT. Could buy 2 gearboxs for the price of 1 center diff. (Or 3 if your paying for the fitment aswell....)

Plenty of 6spd swapped foresters that would have old 5spds laying around.

I Say: Needs more positive manifold pressure.

CorgiWerx do rebuilt VC's for about $325. It's probably the way I'd go if I had to do another center diff.

Yew beaut.

Thanks Bram and chips for the suggestions. Options (cost, risk, benefits) been floating around in my head but the refurb from Corgi sounds hard to go past.

Will enquire ASAP. Cheers!

I'm yet to hear a bad word about CorgiWerx, although I've never personally used any of their products.

I'm in a similar boat with my SH9 and was talking to the guys at All Drive Subaru who had a few options. One is to sell the centre diff in the transfer case so you just have to swap out the old one, pretty quick and straight ahead as all the bearings, etc have been fitted. Downside is it's $1450 for a new one or $1150ish for a reconditioned one. It's about $300 or so cheaper to just buy the diff, bearings and seals.
I've done a fair bit to my car but never messed around with the drivetrain before...is changing the centre diff and bearings as easy as it seems or are there extra things you need to know?

Cheers

Josh

THIS is the DIY for replacing the center diff in an 01 GT. I can't see the SH being too much different.
