    I wanted to post this in case someone else runs into this issue later on. I recently replaced my front two CV axles with cheap non-OEM ones. Right after the replacement I had this clunk noise when I shifted from park to reverse on the LH / Driver side. The noise sounded like it was coming from...

    Tl;dr my engine mounts are about half an inch off, with the mounting bolt part just resting on the crossmember where they go in. I need to get this giant headache into a shop. Right now the front wheels & CV Axle nuts are off (to relieve pressure on the CV axle). Is it safe to put the axle nut /...
  3. Transmission and Driveline
    Today at 51k miles I had to replace the front left cv axle. A bit of a bummer given the mileage but I think it’s the tax of a lift / heavy loads and quite a lot of tough off-roading. This weekend I noticed the steering and handling seemed a bit off on the highway and thought I heard a noise...

    Issue: I've got a thumping sound from the rear passenger wheel/tire/assembly that I can't figure out for the life of me! Happens at all speeds, acceleration independent, no change when braking. It's less of a noise and more of a low thump I feel in the driver seat with each tire rotation...

    This is probably a dumb question but will the passenger side (left side) CV axle be the same as the driver side of a USDM model? Or will it be flipped? I noticed while changing my oil that the inner CV boot is torn, so I figured I'd replace the whole axle instead of dealing with re-packing a...

    Has anyone ever had to replace CV axles on a suba? If So, what do you think is a good place to get them? I dont want to get them from subaru (They cost over $400 and time to actually get it) and Orielly's are said to be crap. Advanced auto parts dont seem great either. Autozone is wishy washy on...

    I installed a 2 inch lift on my '06 2.5x and have recently had issues with the rear axles popping out of the diff. Are the stock axles not long enough to handle the extra angle caused by the lift? I see a-lot of people running the the same lift as me with no issues. Do they make a slightly...
