07 WRX Issues
Ok I have an 07 WRX Automatic. I've noticed here lately that when I first take off in my car whether it's early in the morning or late at night I have a horrible sound coming from what sounds like my axles. It makes a loud knocking sound until I get up to speed and then it clears out and doesn't make anymore noise. It's more noticeable when I drop the car down into first and shift it myself rather then just driving it in Drive. I thought maybe it was only doing it when my car was still warming up, but it still does it even once the car is warmed up. I've read some of the post on here about center diffs going out and it kind of sounds like they had the same issues, but I just wanted to throw my version out and see if its a good possibilty that it is. Could it still be savable if I did a fluid exchange on everything or is it possible that it could be too far a long that a fluid exchange wouldn't do anything. I want to take it to the dealer to get it checked, but of course they charge the crap out of you just to check something like that not to mention to fix it.
FYI: I have checked the front axle boots and neither are cracked or split, but I haven't checked any of the rear axles to see if the sound could be coming from them
