So I ordered some halfshafts for my 89 GL wagon, 4WD manual trans. The parts web site was showing a 25 spline axle for my car. Well guess what? Car has 23 spline. The shafts are APW and even their web site showed the 25 spline for the 4WD wagon. So now my car is sitting on jack stands until the correct parts come in. So my question is, what type trans have what splines and how would one know what he has without taking the thing apart? This trans is a DR. The parts house said it was thier fault and are making things rite. However it looks to me that the supplier gave them the wrong info. Are Subarus really that mysterious?
This car has 259000 miles on it and none of the front end parts have been replaced or taken apart. Even the brake pads have never been replaced. It really gave me a fight taking things apart. Then I changed the left halfshaft on my friends 2000 Legacy and that was easy, smooth as slik. Oh well, I still love my Soob.
