Woohoo! Swapped out the halfshaft on the right front, and it no longer clicks when I accelerate! Oh, it feels so good. Completed in an hour and a half, roughly, versus the six hours it took me before (extra time there was spent running around town, buying the tools I needed).
Thank gawd Subaru's are easy enough to work on in a parking lot, using only the tools I keep in the back of the wagon.
For those of you that want to know how to swap 'em out in a Loyale, just follow Edrach's directions here . I modifed them, using Skip's suggestions... instead of fiddling with the strut backing plate, I pulled the parking brake line off the control arm, then pulled the bolt out of the control arm pivot mount, allowing me to pull the hub rump roast'y out far enough to yank the shaft of the stub. Had to pull the anti-sway bar off of the control arm, too...
