About Subaru Gearbox Australia and All Drive Subaroo

“Our Vision is to build long term relationships with customers based on honesty and trust. “

Subaru Gearbox Australia is a division of All-drive-Subaroo (ADS™). ADS™ has four divisions: Subaru Engine Australia, Subaru Parts, and Subaru Service. Subaru Gearbox Australia supplies parts and complete gearbox and transmission assemblies to the public and to the industry, including motorsport.

Engineers at ADS™ have noted a number of weaknesses in OEM Subaru components in certain models, and have developed solutions though innovative research and development. This research extended into the motorsport area and ADS™ have in collaboration with specialist engineering companies like PPG and Cosworth, developed super strong straight cut and billet steel gearboxes and high output engines for rally, track and dragstrip applications. ADS™ now employs 18 full time staff, in the workshop, factory and admin areas. The company is unique in that everyone working full time at the Peakhurst facility, including those manning the phones, is a fully trained and experienced Auto Tech. For the customer, this means good advice when it’s needed and the right answers.

“Our Mission is to ensure customers satisfaction by providing excellent value products and services”

Remanufacturing and redesign

Subaru Gearbox Australia provides a wide selection of Subaru turbo and non-turbo model gearboxes and automatic transmissions and has at least 70 exchange gearboxes on the shelf ready for despatch at any time. Our reconditioned and remanufactured gearboxes for early five-speed turbo models incorporate selected stronger gear sets to address inherent weaknesses in second and third gears. We can also do six-speed STI conversions. Subaru Gearbox Australia’s motto is research, revise, enhance.

Parts and Support

As well as service, repair, and remanufacture of Subaru gearboxes, we are also Australia’s largest independent Subaru parts supplier with new and used Subaru gearbox parts in stock for all models. So whether you are a DIY mechanic looking to build or repair your own gearbox or a mechanical workshop looking for competitively priced high quality OEM or after-market parts, Subaru Gearboxes Australia has got you covered. We also offer full time technical support from our team of gearbox specialists to assist you through every stage of your project.

Do you own a Mechanical Workshop?

I can not speak more highly of All Drive Subaru.I have been using All Drive Subaroo for the last 4 years now for various parts for my 05 wrx and have always found them to be helpful and professional.I live in Melbourne so finding a company out of state who is trustworthy and is good at what they do was important to me and they have never let me down.My latest purchase of a new engine was made less stressful knowing I was being well looked after.Every email was responded to quickly and all my questions answered also.I Would like to take this time to say a big thank you to Isaac , who I think I sent 100 emails too lol thanks so much for being patient with me.And to the rest of the team thank you also.The new engine feels fantastic and I look forward too many years of fun with it.I can highly recommend them for your next Subaru part or service .Regards Brien T

Just wanted to express my gratitude and big thanks to Gab from All Drive Subaroo. Upon having to pull over to the side of road due to engine acting up and not knowing the problem whilst waiting for a tow truck. Gab pulled over to offer his help, I was surprised by his kindness to offer on helping. After diagnosising the problem and temporarily fixing it, I was very appreciative of his dedication to help others in need and expertise. Again, thank you for your help tonight Gab. Would recommend All Drive Subaroo roo for all other fellow subie owners!

After purchasing a used STI, I took it straight to ADS to make sure everything was in great working order and no hidden issues. They performed a thorough check, went over every bolt and working function to give me the honest run down along with a minor service. Customer service and professionalism is impeccable and pricing is reasonable. Highly recommend taking your Subaru here if you want to honestly look after it.

I called up for advice having just bought my first Subaru, a clean white 04 liberty sedan 3.0SpecB six speed manual, (pre facelift, non-centre diff control) and had questions about the viscous coupling and gearbox, and the amazingly helpful bloke on the phone couldn't have explained it better or more simply, aftermarket LSD's, their own uprated viscous couplers, how to test the viscous coupler (by jacking one wheel and trying to move it, smooth resistance is what you want).What more could you ask for?I'm looking for more advice having just bought a 2.5 '04 wagon 5spd with low range, as a replacement for the sedan whose nose was broken, whacked by a young girl texting and driving her Mazda.I'll eventually give All Drive Subaroo some money for their services, gladly.Five stars 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

I had planned a track day with my GC8 WRX STI on Sunday, so took it for a quick drive around the block on Saturday to make sure it was running ok. 5mins into driving it wouldn’t rev cleanly over 3000rpm. I’ve had issues with this before and thought my Sunday Track Day was over unless I could find someone to fix it on a Saturday?? All Drive Subaru was open so limped the car out there where Isaac had a look over it for me. After diagnosing what could be wrong he systematically looked at about 3-4 issues which was causing the car to do this which he explained to me as he went through them. This took 2.5hrs which was 2.5hrs after he was meant to finish his shift and leave but stayed because he wanted to find the solution to get my car running so I could get to the Track Day on Sunday. Needless to say after 2.5hrs of not rushing but fixing the problem and any associated problems which could have arisen on my Trackday the car ran perfectly. I went to leave & fix them up for the 2.5hrs Isaac had spent on my car and Niazi and Isaac said “Don’t worry it’s on us”!!! I would have been ready to pay anything for their effort and getting me to my Trackday the next day where apart from being disappointed I would have lost $300 not being there. I didn’t want to leave without paying for there service but they insisted.(I had never been there before). I’m actually blown away by a business that provides this type of customer service that is so genuine, honest and passionate. These guys are next level in knowledge, quality and honesty as a business and Subaru’s. I’m definitely a convert and will be using these guys for all my existing and future needs as I develop my STI.

My experience with All Drive Subaroo was excellent. I ordered a reconditioned gearbox for my daughter's 2008 Forester and collected it last Friday. From Niazi (the owner) to Rob, Chris, Adam, Ruben and the young guy in the workshop who cleaned up the parts that I needed to keep (who's name I didn't get), there was their obvious experience and knowledge of all things Subaru, plus their professionalism, helpfulness and, importantly, respect for this old guy trying to get my daughter's car back on the road. I'll be recommending them to anyone I can.

Google Business Reviews

I had my forester serviced by the All Drive Subaroo team, I was extremely impressed by their professionalism, customer service, attention to detail and housekeeping of their workshop. Their communication throughout the process was fantastic, with multiple phone conversations about works to be done, written itemized quotes and photos of parts to be replaced. I had to visit them again today (a few months after the service) for what I thought was a follow up issue, turns out it was an easy fix and the guys were more than happy to spend part of their Saturday morning helping me out, assuaging my concerns over my pride and joy. Would 100% recommend them and will definitely be visiting them again.

From the get go when making my booking the staff were highly professional and helpful. They were willing to spend time discussing the issue with my car over the phone, as well as talking me through the service process. I did not feel pressured into making a booking and the call wasn’t rushed as they are typically.After arriving at ADS, I didn’t have to wait long before I was in the car diagnosing the issue with the Director, who was friendly, completely down to earth and had a genuine interest in my car. I was highly impressed with how quickly and accurately the issue was identified (almost immediately upon demonstration). The car had been taken to a Subaru dealer who wasn’t able to resolve this very same issue. Although I didn’t see the director when picking up my car, I was told by the ADS team, that the director was ‘really happy with the way the car drove and it felt like a completely different car’. From that statement I knew that the director takes pride in his work and that my car had been in good hands.It was a pleasure meeting the Staff and I have no hesitation in highly recommending this business to my family, friends and the broader Subaru community. I have no affiliation with All Drive Subaroo, I made a booking based on Google reviews and wanted to share my experience.

Extremely professional team and really honest. I went to visit them this week to change the timing belt of my Subaru outback 2001. But by checking the car thoroughly they noticed that many things were going bad with the car (especially a oil leak). They called me and told me that to fix the car it would cost more than what I actually paid for the car so they advised me not to spent money on it as it will require more and more money to be injected within the next few months which is not worth it. I really appreciate that kind of honesty as a normal (and greedy) mechanics would have told me to fix it. Take home message: GO for THEM... they know what they are doing! 🙂

Great service, Rob went above and beyond giving accurate honest advice on the issue with my Forrester. Great pricing on their spare parts also. They even repaired my sister in laws car tyre for free on the spot after I got a puncture borrowing it to come pickup the parts from them. I will defiantly be using All Drive Subaroo for all future services and NOT my local Subaru dealer.

Postage and handling

Australia Wide Delivery & Pick-Up

We choose to use our good friends at TNT to delivery our goods Australia wide. With very competitive rates and fast delivery times, you will be sure to have your vehicle back on the road in no time at all.

Each gearbox sent from us will contain no gearbox oil due to increased fire risks in transit.

If your new gearbox is being delivered to a residential address, please ensure there is someone home to assist the TNT driver as most TNT trucks do not have a rear tail gate lift.

The gearbox will be secured to a skid or similar and will contain a completed return consignment note for hassle free return of the exchange unit. You can simply call TNT direct or call us and we will have TNT collect the unit from your address.

For customers that purchase exchange units from us, we would request that the gearboxes are drained of gearbox oil prior to returning them.

You are welcome to arrange your own transport if you have pre-existing accounts with other carriers.

For further information please feel free to discuss your query with one of our friendly representatives.
