this car only has 130k on it but it needs some work i have already rewired it for the most part, did a tune up, put a c.v in it, rebuilt the oil pump, and am in the process of doing brakes. before i am going to be anywhere close to done with this thing i will have to replace radiator, flush the system, put new struts and shocks, manuel choke and it will be my daily driver until i get my legacy going again.

after the suspension blues i am hoping to get the rebuild kit for my carb today and start working on that :cool: after that i am going to start patching up the drivers side floor board and then it will be on to rear brakes:brow:
i will try and get some more pics of it with new struts and shocks

i haven't had a chance to look at the damage on my rear brakes yet, but i probably will convert to disc eventually. i got a hygrade rebuild kit from rockauto it was $17 total with shipping and everything . just ordered mounting kit and boots for my struts today and just got the new bolts for my shocks yesterday. i can hardly wait until i get all the new suspension parts in and the rebuilt carb in and see what this car can do. when i do get this running i will make sure to get some pics on some trails up here

the original hatch shocks still work kinda and the piece of galvie tin in the back is to patch the rot in my floor board
i even found some of the original tools
this is the first car i have ever seen that the rear windows roll all the way down

A lot of vehicles have rear windows which roll down all the way (Landcruiser, S-10 Blazer, Tahoe) ect.. Subaru was to child focused even in the 80s lol :cool:
New KYBs look good.

that looks like the same kit i got. the problem i had was i thought i bought a rebuild kit for my 80 but it ended up being a repair kit for a newer model but the parts were the same and they worked, i got mine from rock auto though. i know i went into napa and they had an actual rebuild kit for $35.

i am going to federated auto much better customer service and way better parts. i don't mind oriellys but i only use the ngk plugs and wix filters on my cars and they are less expensive at my local federated auto store as are all the quality parts i use. i do go to oriellys for parts sometimes the only reason i don't use them more is they are to far away, its an extra forty mile drive to the closest one to me
