    Ring Gear Swap

    Yeah, they were originators of the "original" Aussie locker. https://www.torqmasters.com/ Have a TorqMaster lunchbox locker for my 83 Chevy Dana 60 1ton front axle. Will have to check the box & instruction sheet for country of origin & manufacturer. Somewhere out there in the world of off road there's a video showing the turning radius difference of open rear diff VS rear locker on tight trails. Tight turns are a strong reason for turning brake steering.

    Ring Gear Swap

    NO. Ring & pinion are a matched set.
  4. Buy or rent a two wheel tow dolly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKWIKwgSk1U Used ones from U-Haul, etc may still be serviceable after a little maintenance.
  5. This^^^ Bottom of mine was cracked in places as you can see. From Nov 2017. 4 inch lift caused too much strain on intake boot.
  6. Right. Two each trailing arm, #9 in link & two each for the slotted toe-in plate mounted outboard on the cross member, #8 in link. https://www.subarupartsamerica.com/parts/1989/SUBARU/GL/Turbo/?siteid=216122&vehicleid=45477&diagram=758260 Four bushing halves & two tubes per side.

  9. https://www.ultimatesubaru.org/forum/topic/134590-diy-bushing-replacement/ There are Superpro bushings still available but you must be patient for them from Aus. Search for Superpro in this forum. Look here too. 5th post first page. Energy Suspension bushings. https://www.ultimatesubaru.org/forum/topic/131364-87-gl-4wd-wagon-czny/
  10. Yes, just cut it out, lube new hose end with some silicone spray & insert it to same depth. Check that it relieves out away from booster first by blowing through it. Don't want to put it in backward & again have no boost.
  11. When you go to replace that vacuum booster line, be sure to save the check valve inserted in hose near booster. Put it in same place in new hose. Feel the hose for a hard lump - you'll find it.
  12. How did you install these 7207s, face to face with thrust sides pointed into the hubs?

    wide open throttle !!

    Must've been fuel varnish from sitting so long.
  14. czny

    wide open throttle !!

    Is the throttle return spring intact & in its place? Something allowing the throttle butterfly to move freely?

    Rear axle replacement

    " I was able to get the old axle off the diff very easily, and using the BFH and wooden block method I got the stub shaft driven back out through the hub. " Have a set of these & they are better quality than most available locally: https://www.ebay.com/itm/3-8-Drive-E10-Deep-E-Torx-Socket-Trident-T120610-Free-P-P/122072255192?epid=11017011463&hash=item1c6c12cad8:g:2TAAAOSwARZXo2We
