Also for an 06 FSTI would 28393FE110 or alternate: 28393FE111 be OK or not?
The reason for asking is that Impreza Sti's went 5x114.3 from 2004 onwards so does that mean that 28393FE070 is also the part number for the SG9 FSTI?

Charlie,

I can confirm that the part no for an FSTi (all years) "joint kit-front outer" is 28393FE070

The ONLY other vehicle (US, European, General, Aus) using this part is the MY04 WRX STi

Available from the US for $175.64 +pp etc.


FYI
All other SG Foresters used to use 28393SA011 which has now been superseded by 28391SA001 (which includes the shaft as well).

Resurrecting an old thread here but thought would be the best way as I'm really just looking to find out if this info is valid or out of date.

I have an 04 FSTI which I reckon needs a new front CV joint. I was unsure if I needed to get hold of a replacement for a GD Impreza STI or one for any Forester of the same age.

Going by the info in the thread it's not the latter but just getting any GD ISTI CV isn't the answer either as the CV is specific to the FSTI and some 04 Impreza STI's.

So it looks like I'm stuck with paying genuine Subaru prices for the part 28393FE070 superseded by part number 28393FE071 as there are no pattern parts options.

Or, as this thread is 7 years old, is this old information now and can non genuine replacements be got?

I've had a quick look myself but not found anything I'm confident is right as there are plenty that are described as fitting GD ISTI's but they give age ranges of say 02-06 for example so they can't be right for the specific 04 cars if they also fit all other years can they! Maybe someone out there is in the know?

Cheers

I recently replaced one of these thinking I had it knocking. In the end it's STi knock.

But call Bell & Colvill Subaru parts and tell them what you need. They'll cross reference it on the Japan database they've got and you might be able to get part from Subaru proparts via them which have a discount as they're trying to get rid of stock off the shelf.

Cheers, I'll give them a try.

Which 'STI knock' are you referring too? Pretty sure mine is CV as it's variable with steering lock, there's no play in any suspension components and it's not from the engine. Plus I've already re-greased the rear dampers to deal with that particular 'STI knock'. Are there more of these knocks I need to know about that could sound like CV? :lol:

There's STi knock on the front. My usual indy suspected this as CV joints. Replaced both outer CV's and the inner CV on the passenger side. Still a knock when applying lock. Ultimately chased down, or diagnosed, by Dan at Surry Subaru Specialist as STi knock.

The source of which is what then? Not engine I hope!

Sounds like an expensive route to finding your problem too. :eek:


I got a very quick response from Paul at Bell & Colvill. they don't have any in stock but could get me one from Japan which would take 3 weeks at a cost of £222.93 +VAT.

Only other place I found one so far is through allcarpartsfast.co.uk which is slightly more at £228.34 +VAT

I also found a used genuine Subaru 04 FSTI driveshaft assembly complete with CV's for sensible money so that is on it's way to me now! I'll see how it looks and maybe just fit it then I have the option to wait for a new CV to rebuild the original. :smile2:

Not the engine, it's definitely the suspension upright. Only expensive in that replaced the CV's and most of the bushes. Next step will be the suspension itself. :grin2:

Oh well at least you'll have a nice fresh front end, suspension wise, by the end of it all. Can't be a bad thing for getting it through the odd corner with a bit of pace. :wink2:
