5th gear crunches in gear at high speed?

What should I do to fix this? What gear box oil is standard? and what GB oil is good/ better for my 04 wrx 5speed with 100,000km...

Well....you gear box may just need some fixing at that mileage...but I use Redline shock proof and it really helps with syncro problems

100K MILES? have you pulled the gearbag yet and looked at the gears? 100K on any trans is substantial. you might be past "i need the uber gear lube blend" threads.

100k kilometers.

but I am confused are you shifting into 5th really really fast or you are driving say 150kph and gently shift into 5th?
