2000 outback shudders a bit in drive while stopped

My 2000 outback seems to have a bit of a shudder when sitting at a stop light or sign, when the car is stopped in drive. If I bump it to neutral it stops. It's not bad or anything, just ... noticeable. It is a 2.5 with a 4eat. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Mine has the same symptoms. From what I've read here, it may be caused by the use of aftermarket axles. I had mine done at the dealership when I first got the car, so I assumed they were genuine Subaru OEM parts, and still get that shudder in drive that goes away in neutral.

Stuff that I have done in the meantime (for other reasons) that have not changed it: New plugs, wires, coil, alternator, timing belt, pulleys, tensioner, water pump, brakes, and struts. So, you can check those off the list. I plan on changing the AT fluid and filter when it warms up a bit and will let you know if that helps. I don't think it's serious - but will be watching this thread for others' opinions.
