I think its the centre diff or something which lunches itself if only one set of wheels (front or rear) is turning. Similar advice is never to tow a Subaru AWD with wheels on the ground - i.e. use a flatbed.

There is a 2WD version of the Imprezza so the gearbox could be swapped leaving the rear shafts in place and then drive that assembly seperately as shadetree tapped.

Starting to get expensive though.
