Did you make those guards? Those are awesome!

 

Looks like Bill should start making those aswell! :banana:

 

no i did not a friend from Oregon made them hes a board member he also made my roof rack and bumpers as well HTi in vendors fourm

 

ill add this too... i though they were going to be weak due to how they mount.... not the case at all these things are strong as hell!

 

$35 a pair is not a bad price either

no seriously its good stuff i hit a tree then took out an unexpecting mailbox and it didn't bend or dent anything the tree was about 8" in diameter and i hit it hard about 15mph (i was in my lake area trying to get my sunglasses out of the back seat :lol: ) it hit the part of the bumper where turn signal is(on the outside of the mounting bracket which is the weakest point), the tree made the front of the Subaru jump up and over right into the mailbox and as for the tail light guards i tried to bend and twist em and didn't get them to move more than millimeters without almost cracking the mounts of the light itself

Changed front crankshaft seal on my daughters 84 GL wagon. I thought it would be difficult but it was easy and had it done in less than an hour.

looked at my shifter bushings all brand new so the slop must be internal oh well

 

the T bar that the shift linkage bolts to on the tranny (moves in and out and is connected to the tranny by a pin) may not have a bushing. mine did not all it had was a fat bolt through it that was way too small. so all my gears felt like neutral...

 

i cut the old bolt off (because i just bolted the tranny up and the bolt was put in backwards so i couldn't pull it out) pulled the linkage re-drilled the linkage holes to match the new bolt which wasn't as wide as the t bar hole then i cut a piece of copper pipe to sleeve the bolt.

 

now everything is tight aside from the play from the tranny itself which isn't much at all..
