Does anybody know if you can replace just the ball and socket on the end of the hatch lift struts? Mine are all rusty and the one pops on and off with no effort.

(This is 95 Legacy FWIW)

you should be able to order just that bit from subaru

you're talking about the lower portion of the rear hatch struts
with the ball socket in it?


msrp is about $7 each

I can get them for $5.25 each and $4.50 shipping
let me know if i can help but yes, you can get this from subaru.

Good to hear. Unfortunatley, I have a relationship with my local dealership thanks to our rally car so it's just as easy for me to get the parts from them.

While on this subject, does anyone know an easy way to pop the socket off the ball end? I'll probably need to replace those struts within a year or two.
