2001 legacy wagon has a rumble/vibration in the right front

Customer Question

2001 legacy wagon has a rumble/vibration in the right front end on startup acceleration and on corners. It lasts a couple seconds then disappears.
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?
Customer: Clutch is a year old. Fuel filters are good. This is clearly a mechanical problem unrelated to the engine.
JA: Are you fixing your Legacy yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am not. I just need a sense of what it might be to decide where to take it (other than a Subaru dealer).
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

Hello, The most common issue with Legacy's of this age, with rumbling in the front end would be worn out motor/transmission mounts. If you would kindly rate my service as three stars or higher I can then give you instructions on how to replace or what it should cost to have a shop replace.

Thank you,
