Default Cv shaft

On a 1996 impreza l AWD
What all has to be done to change the cv shafts in the front. Do they just pull out and you put the new ones in?

It's about the same thing for the front.

Except you have to disconnect more stuff off the front hubs. Good luck with the lower ball joint. You might want to get sniper's ball tugger off of turninconcepts.com

Have fun and good luck.

Well I'm changing the lower ball joints, hubs with new bearings, outer tie rod ends,struts, calipers pads and rotors all in the front when I do it. I've done it all except for cv shafts. My passenger cv shaft pulled inward about 2" and took the bearing with it. So to be safe I'm changing them all idk if anything got bend. Deep pothole @3 grand in 1st gear I smacked it hard.

You mention it's like the rear I checked out that step by step. So there is a bolt on the front control arm that holds it to the hub and the clips and seals are the same.

I don't know about the instructions involving the hub part (you don't have to do that just to do the axle, but since you're doing it anyway it'll be easier), but the axle is held onto the transmission stub with a pin. You need to hammer it out to slide the axle off.

Not quite sure how to hammer it out. I mean on a rear end you can take the cover off an see all the gears. I'm not too familiar with awd.

The procedure is described here:

http://www.scoobymods.com/axle-remov...20.html?t=8020

Basically, there's a spring pin that goes through the axle and transmission stub. You have to hammer that out with a punch (or something like it) before you can pull the axle off. Then you have to hammer it (or preferably a new one) back in when you put the new axle on.

On another note, this is the wrong forum. There's a transmission and driveline forum further down the page.
