Centre Diff/ Rear diff??

Recommended Posts

My 08 Legacy GT was making light thudding noises when I turned. After a longish drive, the thudding became really jarring when I turned especially at low speeds and sharp turns.


From a little bit of research I think it might be the centre or rear diff - but have no idea what I should do to check this. I am hesitant to take it into the shop just yet in case it's something that I can check at home first - I don't want to tow it unnecessarily.


Any advice is appreciated.

Is the tread depth of all four tires within 3mm or so of each other?


When my center diff was bad, I noticed the clicking when turning at low speeds was worse on hot days, or after I had been driving for awhile and the transmission was warm.
