  1. I just bought a '98 Forester which has a vibration when under load. Mechanic said I have frozen u joints and the prop shaft has to be replaced ($1100) because they are non-serviceable. I really hate being told what can't be done and I'm a cheap-skate, so I did a little searching and came up with http://rockforddriveline.com/replacem.htm. These guys have a whole line of u joints for "non-serviceable" drive shafts. I ordered three u joints for $110 and will replace them and test drive it. If I don't update this topic, it means all went well. Otherwise I will warn of the pitfalls. I would love to hear if anyone else has attempted this and what their success was.
  2. The Hatch received a new clutch, machined flywheel, new front DS CV shaft and hub (THANKYOUSOMUUUCH Gloyale Rear drive train is a w.i.p. so currently running it without the rear shafts. Everything else back in after the drive shaft was straightened + refurbished with new u-joints, diff worked over. The engine was not removed to replace the clutch, the trans was pulled. It was rocked back and forth a bit, so the following symptoms.. bad engine mounts? It starts a bit more rough, and immediately with vibrations felt through the car, never before present. They reappear when engaging the clutch and moving the car forward from a stop and at very low speeds. Engine not is now a subtly lower tone, and while it's not drastically slower, I can tell it runs with a bit less power. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Bonus engine bay pic, glad to see my rear end paint job from New Year's holding up extremely well, but sorry no pics of that yet. http://postimg.org/image/9f8csxn17/
