Ball Joint & Outer Tie Rod End Boots

Recommended Posts

1999 Forester, 175K miles

 

The original right ball joint had a broken boot at 160K miles.

 

When I replaced the clutch at 168K miles, I also replaced both ball joints with Beck & Arnley parts, which were sourced from different suppliers: the aftermarket joints were different from one another.  In any case, the boot on the right side was trashed less than a year later so I decided to clean it up with some brake cleaner and replace just the boot with a liberal application of Valvoline synthetic grease.  I also replaced the right outer tie rod end boot, which had split along the seam. 

 

Energy Suspension Part Numbers:

Ball Joint: 9.13103G
Tie Rod: 9.13119G

 

The original ball joints were still ok, no clunking or change in handling but after I finally got them out, there was a tiny bit of play in the original joint with the torn boot. 

 

Replacement boots should work with any of the following applications:

 

SUBARU BAJA (2003 - 2006) SUBARU FORESTER (1998 - 2012) SUBARU IMPREZA (1993 - 2005) SUBARU IMPREZA 2.5 GT (2009 - 2010) SUBARU IMPREZA 2.5I (2006 - 2010) SUBARU IMPREZA 2.5I LIMITED 2010 SUBARU IMPREZA 2.5I PREMIUM 2010 SUBARU IMPREZA OUTBACK SPORT (2006 - 2010) SUBARU IMPREZA R 2010 SUBARU IMPREZA SPORT (2008 - 2010) SUBARU IMPREZA WRX (2006 - 2010) SUBARU IMPREZA WRX LIMITED (2006 - 2010) SUBARU IMPREZA WRX PREMIUM 2010 SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI (2006 - 2011) SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI LIMITED (2007 - 2011) SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI SPECIAL EDITION 2010 SUBARU IMPREZA WRX TR (2006 - 2007) SUBARU LEGACY (1990 - 2011) SUBARU OUTBACK (2000 - 2011) SUBARU XT (1989 - 1991)
