Hello all, I'm new to owning Subaru's but thought this car would be a great starting point as I am very good at working on small carbureted engines. I picked this car up for $500 and you can probably see why. Its pretty dented up underneath and has a few dings on the body, but it drives straight, only has 132,000 miles on it and other than the carb needing a rebuild it runs like a top! Lots of power and smooth shifting through every gear. Its missing the front right CV so its gotta be driven in 4x4, its back right shock is broken and completely disconnected, the front right wheel needs camber adjusted (I was told replacing the CV would help with that), and it needs a lot of bushings replaced. I'll get more pictures soon when I clean it up a bit, its pretty muddy outside and dirty inside. 
I tried posting in a more suitable place for the topic but it wouldn't let me post, maybe because I am new? Anyway, I have 2 pictures to show a part on the rear suspension that connects the rear diff to the suspension. I'm not sure what the part or bushing would be called, so I was hoping someone could clear it up so I can get those ordered ASAP. I have a CV, shocks for the rear, and a carb rebuild kit on the way. I plan on ordering all new CV's and shocks all around, I just want to get this thing to the point of being road worthy before I dump too much money in it. 
Thanks in advance and if I should post somewhere else, can someone explain how? 20140315_161053_zpsd7130a07.jpg20140318_133250_zps2faa75c6.jpg20140318_133241_zpsc41db4ea.jpg

Nice find, you're probably better off posting this in the old gen 80's. Or better yet start a new topic in members rides and post pics/plans/and repairs you do. That might be better, but either way welcome to USMB.
