Default Torque bind questions

Please before you start flaming, I did search, and I could not find what I was looking for.

I have a 97 LGT, AT with about 110k miles on it. I bought the car used around 82k miles. I noticed the torque bind when I first bought the car, but it wasn't too bad. After about 5-10K miles I changed the diff fluid, and the torque bind was reduced. Well now at 110k miles the torque bind is back and with a vengeance. I want to get it repaired permanently. I'm looking to see what a good price is (searching I've found anywhere between $400-$2000) Also are there any recommendations for a good place to get it done in northern California (bay area) Thanks

97 impreza brighto

Default new guy old problem

torque bind. 97 impreza 2.2 4EAT. fwd fuse makes it go away. pull fuse and awd works for pulling seadoos back up the boat ramp. so, the solenoid releases fluid pressure to the rear drive clutch. if fwd fuse works, that implies sol works and pressure releases. so, is it that the pressure doesn't release fast enough for the 30 hz cycle rate to release clutches? but releases well enough for always open? and that why trans fluid change sometimes helps? planning on doing MT and turbo to this beastie eventually so don't wanna sink too much time-money into this auto trans. gonna be the kid's first car. he wants a 22B. we don't have 100k to spend so i figured the wannabe-clone route...
