You can reuse your existing spring pins without any problems, unless you lost them.

http://www.mcmaster.com/ shows nearly 1000 spring pins, I'm sure you'll find what you need there.

I have never found them in the right size outside a dealership-and believe me I've looked a few years back. Then found a dealer that sold them at reasonable rather than holdup prices

Is you don't want to re-use the old ones, try www.1stsubaruparts.com; that way you'll get ones that are correct for the application.

Luigi, you need 4. do you want new or are you just missing the ones that were in the halfshaft on the old tranny? If it is the later, give me a call (I'll send you a PM with the number). I likely have a few laying about the shop.

What's wrong with wrapping an old coat hanger around it?

























OK, Sorry that was bad.
