  1. i have lots of pieces to oem axles lol but at this point there basicly unobtainium any one who has them no dought nows what they have already and just wont let go of them unless they just sold the car and arent doing any more ea8* rigs anymore
  2. i cant tell you how many brand new axles ive got that had no greese in them at all none they clicked out of the box in the store ive litteraly opened the box twisted them by hand and gave them back to the guy at the counter and told him send it back its junk im not installing that in my car even went round and round with upper managment as the bad axles there trying to give me were replacement for axles that failed the store refused to reorder saying this one is brand new then i peeled it open and it had no greese they ordered me a new axle your best bet if you cant find a good used oem axle is to buy some quality silicone boots and greese and reboot the new aftermarket axle before it goes in to the car it will last alot longer one of my first jobs was rebuilding cv axles for pepboys ive rebuild more than my share of axles
  3. in my opinnion sjr would have a better understanding of the older rigs i seen post after post of his stuff on ea81s and ea82s with nothing but good sead about his suff and hes been on here for a long time posting builds and answering questions adf i feel is more ej oriented i personaly never did buisness with ether so i can only offer my opinion

    these cars are vary touchy about there ground wires i had one fall off while wheelin took me 4 hours to figure out 1 ground wire pulled out on these cars you cant have to many ground wires i would almost say every major component have 3 grounds one to body one to block one to battery small loads are fine through the body but dont rely on it for a ground source

    Ready to go for the lift...I think so.

    my front struts are for a 98-04 forester and ya they just bolted in im running 215-75-16s on my imp there somewere around 28.5 inches or so i had to cut alot of fender alot and still get some rubbing here and there i also have my wheels spaced out about a.inch with a heavy offset rim so the tires are pushed outside the fenders by about 1" making the rubbing worse but with out the heavy offset the tires will rub the spring purch i have about a 1/2" of clearance between the strut and the tire now also i had to move the rear wheels backwords to stay centered in the wheel wells and keep the back tire out of the rear doors and i also droped the rear control arms down 2" to keep suspention geomitry in line you can get the factory drop brackets off of the outback they should be good enuff since its a lego going to stock outback ride hight you dont realy need the drop brackets for the front if your just doing struts when i lifted our lego i went with new front struts and i added a 1/4 spacer on top of the struts and was at the far limits for the alignment the outback brackets will fix that so your closer to stock tolerances the rear got 2.5" lift and was out of specks and we couldent align it right and had to use aftermarket adjustable arms to get back in specks did i say i had to cut alot off the fenders to clear 28.5 tires and i mean alot theres just no way a big tire is gona fit that small opening i used 2" wide fender flairs to hide and cover the tires to stay street legal and it gives it that ralley car look instead of the i just cut the hay out of my fenders to stick these big tires on it look

    Ready to go for the lift...I think so.

    you wont get much lift with the stock springs so get the forester or ouback springs also if you have a choice get the turbo version if you plan on offroading it while your getting the body spacers off the outback grab the steering coupler also the stock one will be to short once the subframe is droped but we need you to do us a favor we just gave you some information to the best of our knowladge but now we need.some thing from you we need before and after pics cause it dident happen without pictures dangnabit
  11. i dont know if it makes more sence but when in the feild you dont always have a choice
  12. if you have it in far enuff to get the nut on and pry on it than you wont be damaging anything just make sure.to line everything up first before beating or prying on anything they should be a tight fit and.some just plain dont fit so dont try to hard but alot of times they just need a light smack or 2 to get to the point that you can get the nut to thread on and pry on

    Gear Ratio Identification???

    the ratios are to close to go that route in my opinion anyway 4 bolts and you know for sure no big deal if there on the bench already
  14. ive had to pull the boot and hammer them in before then reseal the boot not a big deal if you can get the shaft in far enuff to get the nut on it then you can pry the shaft in to place using the nut and a pry bar also try to align the axle and the bearings inside the hub you could be hitting one of the bearings from the inner race being slightly off the one thats pulling apart has something wrong with it they forgot a clip somewere ether the shaft end or inside the joint it self so take it back

    Gear Ratio Identification???

    if the metal tag is gone your gona have to open them up it shouldent be a issue if there all sitting in front of you the gear ratio is stamped on the ring gear or maybe it was.the teeth count thay stamped on the gear ether way thats were it is some times there is mud covering the sticker
  16. ferp420

    Gear Ratio Identification???

    there should be a tag on it that has the gear ratio and if its a lsd diff maybe 2 tags one would be a sticker and one a metal tag atached to one of the bolts on the rear of the housing and would have #s stamped on it

    Where to source l series axles

    save that factory axle and put some silicone boots on it and use good quality greese and it will be leaps and bounds better than any aftermarket axle shaft 8
  18. is it.still drivable and dose it.come with a title im not realy lookin for another loyale but i would take one im not far from there and could use the parts i would need the title to scrap the leftovers though

    Where to source l series axles

    Front strut

    ea81s dont have rear struts but the fronts were adjustable ive nerver seen or herd of adjustable front struts for a ea82 not that that means anything the ea82 some of the newer coilovers for the rear do have 2 settings for the spring purch so kinda adjustable the ea81 the tortion bar ride hight is adjustable but we were talking front struts i think
  21. ferp420

    Front strut

    i think the adjustable struts were for the ea81 the ea82 i think are the same units the rear though they had to make the strut shorter and use a higher mounting point on the knuckle to clear the cv joint

    Where to source l series axles

    if i remeber the 25 spline was for turbos only all n/a cars were 23 spline there is some differance between fwd and awd but they would still fit ether rig with out issue i sure the carbed vs non carbed are both 23 spline with other differances but non that would cause one not to work besides by now im sure all 23 splines are the same and wont matter same with 25 spline there are no good choices left for any of them so just get what fits and fill it with greese and if you want it to last for any lenght of time replace the boots with silicone rubber boots always check for play at the shop you get the axles at ive had too many come slopy out of the box and when installed fail in days after install its best to refuse them at the counter than try to get them to replace them after they fail

    EA82 lift

    for the rear struts ive found nissan 300zx front struts fit the rear of the loyale perfictly there the same size as the front wheel drive loyale rear struts but have a much larger shaft than stock struts and you get a half inch more wheel traval as there longer than the stock struts and the damining is way better the springs dont fit though you have to use honda springs or stock springs the lift blocks are somewere between 15° and 18° depending on your rig my loyale likes 18° but its so bent up now it almost dosent mater i couldent clear 235/75/15s on a 2" lift i went 4" with tempo springs front and the nissan struts on the rear with stock springs and a 2" lift for around 3" of tottal lift on the loyale to clear 30" tires i found some dirt cheap maxxis tires in the 28" range but there for 16" rims but damb they handle 80mph on dirt like there on pavement and handel sand snow ice and pavement great and do ok in the mud too but there not mud tires just incase your looking for tires
  24. So i am putting together another ddd rig i pulled my loyale off the road due to to many questionable parts and untested designs and i just dont want to risk it on th3 road i have a 3.9 duel range and a 4.11 outback trans and diff and a forester 4.44 set up the forester is going to be the doner rig the outback is getting a new trans also im planning on running around 30" tires and some bumpers and what not i also have a 2000 2.2 to port and polish and mod out for the imp it should be a great daily driven desert runner i have to traval around a mile through the ohv park to get to my house so i need something that can take the woops at speed cross big sand canyons and dry creaks and light rock running day in day out and thats just getting to town my big truck has a problem getting stuck all the time some times 3 times a trip not a big deal but time consuming and it burns alot of gas just running to the store the plan is to swap all the suspention from the forester use the 15" rims from the outback and swap the trans for better gear ratios i probably wont lift it any more.than just the forseter parts to save gas inshould be moving in to the new house in a month or 2 so i should have plenty of room and time to finnish all my builds like my loyale and the outback and my scout and the imp lol i dont wan5 to move the forester so its off to the crusher unless some one wants it with out its suspention its engine or trans the body is still solid and in good shape there wasent any rust or dents last i looked at it full leather interior too it was just a horable off roader and i dont want t deal with it anymore
