new spindle

Recommended Posts

i tried to take my ball joint out of my 88 dl sw the other day as it was froze solid and the damn bolt broke on me, i finally got the bolt drilled out but had to use a pipe wrench to break the rusty ball joint loose,well i finally got it out but the socket where it was is totally fobar ,rusty and totally nasty,new spndles or hubs depending on what you call them cost about 180 to 200 bucks at the discout places what other years and models will interchange with this vehicle it is an 88dl wagon with push button 4wd and will be my winter car as soon as i get it running,(electrical problems) any help from the subaru geniouses would be greatly thankful

ALL EA 82  THRU 1994  LOYALES  WILL WORK .  2 WD  OR 4WD   THEY ARE THE SAME FRONT SPINDLE ,  I HAVE SUCCESSFULLY USED  METAL OR BRASS SHIM STOCK  TO  REPAIR THE BALL JOINT SOCKETT . AS LONG AS THEY DONT MOVE IN THE BORE  YOU SHOULD BE GOOD .

I need to replace the hub because it got red hot( no axle inside) so I am not sure how tough the metal is temper wise so I think I will look at pull and save it is only  25 bucks for the spindle.
