Just finished changing passenger axle, shifter linkage, and header studs/nuts...

I'm glad I went to sears and bought the long punch set.
Also, getting 3 of the header studs out of the heads were HARD! I had to use visegrips and clamp them down with all I had in order to get it to grab and turn the stud.
When I reasembled the exhaust, I put anti-seize on the header studs and nuts so if I ever have to take it off again, it shouldn't be too bad.
All in all, it wasn't that bad.
Sorry, had to brag.
Just wondering, how much would it have cost to do that at a Subaru garage with parts and labor?

Figure your labor at $75/hour X 4 hours is a minimum cost savings of $300, but prolly more.
