I'm driving a 2005 outback i with some vibration issues. The problem was initially being masked by a bad wheel bearing, which once replaced, only relieved half the symptoms.
Currently I feel a vibration under stress or lag when in gear, and a general vibration that resonates more at different speeds, but always vibrates while moving (coasting in neutral). The vibration seems centered beneath the center arm rest/console.
I'm thinking this is going to be a bad universal joint. Any other ideas or indications? Also if it is the u-joint, these are non-repairable, right? Any good way to get this done on the cheap?
