I finished off doing my first c.v. today, finishing cause noone was home a 5:30 yesterday to pull on the hub when i was feeding the axle into the car . Instead of taking the outer d.o.j. cup off the tranny I dismantled the d.o.j. while still on the car then withdrew the axle from the car, a bit greasy but saved me buying a new pin and knocking the old one out. I changed out the c.v. and the doj with a used ntn one i had lying around. The doj that i took out of the car would jam and wouldnot move freely but the bearings are held in the cage allot tighter the the one i put back in. As i discovered as they sometimes fell out as i was puttin it in.

How do you tell a worn doj?

But the good thing now is theres no clacking on right hand turns even at lock :banana:.

I'm getting ready to switch out my cv, what is a d.o.j. cup? All of the cv I have ever done just pull out of the tranny and are retained by a circlip inside the tranny. Is this like yours?

the front axles have a DOJ (Dual offset Joint) on the inner tranny side, and a CV on outer side

All of the Subarus that I have done use a roll-pin through the axle's end cup and through the tranny/diff/rear-hub stub axle. (Don't know about Legacy/impreza or pre-EA81.) This roll-pin needs to be driven past the stub axle using a long-nosed (2.5-3 inch long) punch just under 1/4inch dia (7/16ths???).

The front outer CVs include the stub-axle which pases through the hub and its bearings, secured by axle nut.

7/32" chainsaw file or pin punch works perfect for the job. the chainsaw file makes it a little easier because its longer then a punch. (lessens the chance of hitting your hand on something while pounding it out.

I'm worried once I get this apart I won't be able to find it, I've never done a subaru before.

3/16 punch fits perfect.
