Tire to front strut clearance 97 Legacy OBW?
Posted 03 December 2005 - 01:48 AM
Anybody got a 97 that can give me "finger measure" on this? Thanks!
BTW....I was using the search feature for this and ran across a thread about replacing the axle assembly on the passenger side---the side above the cat (and on the 92 right above the oxygen sensor) and as I did this also a week ago, instead of getting under the car and driving the roll pin up, try putting the top of your punch in a socket that just fits, then add about 2 feet of socket extensions and drive it out from the top down. Works great!

in the end (assuming you didn't get regular legacy struts instead of outback) if a mm keeps things separated that's really all you need.
you could show us a picture

// Anyway, with the stock aluminum 15" wheels and the garish Michelin white letter tires that were OEM, ///
Take them to a tire shop and have them flipped on the rims so the RWL are on the inside....
