Anybody ever heard of or wiped the boots off to prevent extra wear, makes sense though, I have not done this.

Has anyone used these axles yet?

One of the guys I work with told me the guy making these says he's selling a ton of them.

how do you determine how much grease goes into a CV boot?

Unless you're going very slow all the time, don't put any grease in the CV boot.  It will just cause the boot to balloon out at speed, sling around, and generally tear itself apart.  Pack the joint full with a good moly grease if it's an outboard/fixed joint.  The inboard/plunging joints don't need to be packed full.

I've been trying to get the name/number of a retail distributor, so far no luck.

Their main distributor is World Pac.

Supposedly their return rate on standard replacement axles was 18%, with these ball spline axles it's 3%.

I was going to get a set but they don't have the ball spline version for a 99 Legacy, just the normal replacement.

If world pac is their main distributor I can get them thru work. We use oem subaru on customers cars, but I am about to lift my obw and it would nice to have axles that can handle the lift.

are you talking about the slip yoke ones? Because unless there diffrent than the 93 legs, thats what im running on my 00 forester right now. most of these axels are all interchangeable. Might have to pop the tone ring off though.

How much $ ?

As far as I can tell ABS tone ring is the only difference between pre-99 and post-99 axles. Tone rings are easy to knock off with a hammer.

Trying to get a set with the ball spline in the middle and fixed joints at both ends if that's what you mean by slip yoke.

So the later ones should work, front and rear, just knock the ABS rings off?  What year/model should I order for?

yes - for the fronts you just tap the tone ring off and it works fine on older models.  i've never seen rear axles fail so i've never bothered.

Anybody actually run these yet? Seems like there was a lot of buzz about these.
Other boards have similar threads, lots of people talking bout them but no posts about actual use.

Seems the only retail option for these is advance auto and they don't have any in stock. Some have apparently bought them through Heri directly, but again, no updates on how they've held up.

Yes sir I've been running them on my 00 for about a year now. It's running long springs and 1" spacer. 2.4" about.

Now the only poblems. The first pair I got installed, one side the inner C clip failed and pulled out of my within a week. Got the new one within a couple days, have yet to have another problem.

But I know another guy who's running my 2" lift and king springs and he's killed 3 or 4 of these. 2 c clip failures and 2 complete frags. Now this could be because he's way over the 50% over stock. He's at 3.4" with no subframe spacers. That a lot of lift for sure.

My own rating on them is 9/10 fantastic replacement as long as they don't have the c clip fail they should last a while with a desent lift (3" and under).

Have about a year on them and now problems since I got the new one.

The c-clip that holds the shaft in the joint failed? Inner joint or outer?

I'll be at about 3" between OB struts, kings and effective cross member spacing. So I'm looking for reliable axle options if it starts eating stock greens.
I'm thinking I may add another 1/2-3/4" spacer for the front crossmember.

I like the idea of these axles, but I can see where the design might unintentionally allow for that C clip to pop out certain conditions.

I also find it strange that they advertise these on the very first page of their product catalogue but don't list any of the HD axle part numbers in the catalogue.

You need to search the online parts catalogue which contains the HD part numbers too.  http://www.showmethe...heriautomotive/
