while a clutach install on my friends '95 Legacy, I got some 1mm plastic washers and stuck each at both sides of the joint. I cut the washer so it's not a "C" shaped instead of an "O" so I can slide it past the bolt. I was unable to pull off the WHOLE joint assembly because the tranny was still under the car and it's SUPER STUCK on there. BUT it was an AWESOME fit and now it feels AWESOME again. the slope sucked.
