Default Replacing driver side front axle on 95 legacy

I have a bad driver side front axle on my 95 legacy ls. I have replaced axles on Honda's but never on a Subaru. Do you know where i can find a write-up on doing this?

Thanks.

um..its not that hard, 32mm nut on the axle will be the hardest part lol, can take alotta force to get that freed. Might wanna take it to a shop and have em zap it with the gun for ya first then go to town on it.

How i did mine:

1. Break 32mm nut free
2. Break lugs free
3. Raise car, support on jack stands.
4. Remove wheel
5. Remove 32mm axle nut
6. Remove pin from inner axle spline
7. Unbolt strut from Knuckle (19mm)
8. Drop knuckle to max and slip the outer axle out of the hub by pushing toward tranny
9. Pull halfshaft out toward you.

Reverse this crap to put the new one in. Add a little rotation adjust to get the new axle splines to line up with the transmission of course. Same with outer for the hub. And be sure to put the new pin in and crush the 32mm nut to lock it on the axle where the notch is Hub side.

I think that is pretty much it, then again its almost 3am so ya'll feel free to correct me.

Be sure to mark where the top strut bolt is, that way you dont screw up your camber. You only have to remove the top strut bolt, and simply loosen the bottom one.

Be sure to remove the spring pin that is on the tranny side of the axle, remember to pound it back in THROUGH the chamfered hole.

Douse the crap out of the strut bolts with Breakaway or something similar, I snapped one of mine off on my 95.

Forgot to mention, the axle only goes on one way, you have to line up the groves. If you look carefully at the tranny splines, and the axle splines, you will see what i'm talking about.
