So there have been many questions concerning what fits what so I've begged my sister to borrow her digital camera so I can take these pictures:

Tie rod ends from left to right; Impreza/legacy late model, legacy/impreza early model, L-series(ea82), and finally ea81:

L-series ball joint is too small to 'satisfy' Legacy knuckle (every subaru enthusiast must prove his/her commitment in blood):
Posted Image


This is just wrong lol...:

Legacy and L-series knuckles like ebony and ivory side by side with balljoints..harmony:

Now that is cool and helpful.
Do you have any specifications on that shim ring? That might be the best solution yet -if- the bolt still has enough contact with the ball joint body to retain it properly.

Never mind, I found your other post:

As ive just checked over, the legacy 89-94 ball joints and xt6 4wd ball joints are the same diameter, and length. For some reason part numbers are different. Both 3 1/2" length overall. 1 1/2" diameter.

I have not checked the seat size or mating surfaces to prove if they are exact.

Xt6 ones cost a bunch more however.


As far as axles go, the xt6 4wd auto shaft diameter is larger, ill post up length later. They are, however shorter then the legacys, according to Suberdave.
