Anyone ever tried to adapt these http://www.arizonadr...ong_splines.htm to a subie? I imagane you would have to weld the axle shaft to the CV and use the slip shaft design to allow for the change in turn center, or perhaps modify the front knuckles by moveing the Balljoint hole and strut mount. but that should work, oh and you would need 2 jionts per axle, so not cheap

Looks sorta like what I was thinking of doing with Datsun axles. Main problem seems to be with heat treat and welds.

Those are all driveshafts; not axle shafts. There is a company that makes extreeme angle axle shafts with very tough CV joints. These companies can surely make what is needed for a Subaru but nobody want's to pay for what they are worth.

We'd prolly have full 6" suspension lift kits by now for Subaru platforms; but people whine about paying $400 for a simple 3" body lift. People pay thousands of dollars for suspension lift kits on other vehicles and that's why they have aftermarket support.

Part of that comes from people not wanting to put that much money into a car they only paid a couple hundred bucks for. I was just thinking that it would be cool to have the first rock crawling 'Prezza :D not many off road 'prezzas, but I would if I had a properly equiped ride, it's stock now, but the shocks are shot, so I was thinking while I was in there, I may as well see what I can do to make it more capable off road.

I'd say lift it, put bigger tires on it, then actually bust up CVs on the trail. Then let us know what would be the best way to implement some heavy duty custom CV joints.

I think youll notice you want low gear reduction before you blow any axle assemblies. ;)

A little MS paint for ya.

*edit* yeah, the gearing is an issue, I am thinking either a divorced atlas Tcase or a D/R conversion. though mine is an auto so it would be nice to keep that for off road.

Looks like a regular old Double Cardan joint. Can be found on the front of many Jeeps, esp. Cherokees.


Go to the local J/Y, snag a few front drive shafts from Cherokees, break out the welder and tell us how they do as axles on a Sube.:drunk:

The inboard mounted brakes are kinda trick. Makes engineering the IFS a lot simpler that way. Sure would be fun to toss money at a project like this.
