Update: There are 2 gear ratios available for '96 outback:
With 1.8 and 2.2 engines, ratio should be 3.1 to 1
With 2.0 engine, ratio should be 4.11 to 1
There should be a tag attached to the rear cover with the ratio stamped on it. You can compare this # to the # on the front differential to see if they match.
