Ordered Baja Turbo RSB, and a bunch of oil filters. Replaced the fuel filter to get ready for winter. Started to learn how to MIG weld, toying with the idea of making an exhaust system over the winter.

Side note- Driving around on back roads and saw this in my mirrors!
Dodge Challenger Hellcat! Man, they are mean!

Today I took a ride deep in the woods until we were stuck in the deep mud with my best friend
we beat the **** out of the car to get it out of there and that's where I realised that
A my car which is supposed to have a rear LSD based on the fact that It's a H6 2001 doesn't have one
or B Canadian H6 don't have one
or C the LSD is dead ...

sadly I think option C is going to be correct.

or your diff is not in its original form. (like someone robbed one with matching gears out of another subaru and stuck it in,...like a forester or legacy).

2001 H4 or H6 canadian / usdm Outbacks I think should have had all LSD. (even the base ones).

I can confirm that the 2001 base outback does not have the LSD. Cars101 is wrong on that one. I'm pretty sure in 2002 they all have it though.

my previous 2000 h4 base with the winter package (later called the all weather package) had it as part of that package.

_______

another rear diff that could easily had been swapped in there is a
a h6 vdc from 2001-2004 should have a open locker in the rear as it stops the tires electronically.

According to what I've found, the LSD only comes with AWP in the 2002 base cars - like mine. Limited, H6, LL Bean - all should have LSD if they are non-VDC, from what I know. A pretty large share of base cars came with LSD, so on the whole I suspect a non-LSD car is rarer than one with. I think 03-04 may have seen all cars with LSD. Once VDC took over on all cars, no more LSD on any of them.

changed my power steering fluid.. cycled through like a quart and a half.. got the same pump the guy lists in the video and it worked awesome..picked up some catrol atf from walmart when i was there.

did it like this.. emptied the reservoir out then refilled then started and cycled the steering wheel a half a dozen times back and forth. did this like 4 times which is about when the fluid started looking like the stuff i put it in..drove it back and forth to work for a week and checked it this past friday and it was clean..still pumped out the reservoir and refilled it.

went to the local UPull and picked a whole wiper and linkage assembly and right side fog
went back home and put everything on
I filled a hole in the rear light assembly of the deck with silicone because water was getting in the lights

you need a new username. 1998 is not 2003.

(dream one up, and contact admin to swap it).

Re-booted and put back the OEM axle. No more vibrations.
a post like this is what tells us those folks claiming the issue with vibration is caused by worn transmission mounts are likely wrong.
