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?

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.
