  1. Hello, Just a quick question. My wife mentioned that there was some clicking noise when turning corners and on occasion when going over a bump. I took a look at the cv joints and the front driver outer boot is split. From my repair manual and online if replacement goes well it's easy but issues can easily arise. Since this is our only vehicle I'm thinking I'm going to get a local shop to do it to minimise downtime just in case I damage something accidentally. To my main question, most places say just replace the whole axle (and the other side too) for the cost but then I keep reading that the aftermarket axles are junk. Should I have just the worn CV joint replaced, replace both front outer CV joints, or replace both front axles? If I can't get my hands on Subaru parts, any aftermarket brands to go with or stay away from? Thanks!
  2. I have a 2001 Forester L. It is a manual 5 speed. The front U joint failed and the drive shaft dropped. As I was pulling the car home, a little over 1/2 a mile, the stick shift popped loose. When I took the cover off I saw the ball joint had popped out of the socket. How would I get it back in? It will not fall into place by hand. Thank you.
  3. i recently purchased an 85 GL hatch and i found this in the engine bay. how bad for the axel is this? im rather inexperienced in working on subarus unfortunately.
