I'm not sure where all the bearings are ? Won't I need them ?

Funny,as we pushed it into the bay the tire just went more ,and more, and more positive camber . And got harder and harder to push ? When it fell off,pushing got very easy!

Its all good!

Some more new/old parts got here today!

What I have learned is the 94 JDM Sti. has cores splines on both ends. The 02 USDM WRX has one corse and one fine. The fine is on the outside and the cores is on the inside. This is very good because I need to reuse the inner CV because of the LSD. In the photos you will see that the JDM/LSD has 2 splines. The WRX does not.

I will rebuild the inner CV with the JDM parts and use the USDM outter. This will give me the axle I am missing. As you can see, some of the JDM axle is missing? My bad!

I have also a photo of the vented and non-vented caliper. I will be using the vented system. It was used on the SVX rear brake system.

Not much to show today. Sorry no photos . Cleaned some parts and painted them. Built some axles with the ends and boots I needed.



For Saterday my plan is to have both chassis in the air and swap the S rear tray to the L car. Then the L tray to the S car. Then back on the groung for the white chassis and will start on the LSD/vented disc swap for the black car.


Easy!

From rusted to almost new ? Will need new bearings.



With primer. Think is that dirt will come off better than no paint?



Here is my other lift. Working alone today so I'm going a little slow.
Was going to remove the tray all to gether but ? to much for one guy. I just pulled some of the weight off and no big deal.

Also found that the (car) rear arms are longer than the Forester's arms. Like 3/8" longer? This could add some neg. camber ? For Rally what are the rear camber numbers?



Some shots of the trays. The blacker one is the 89 Forester the other is ??





Another thing is the Forester Diff. mounts are in the tray not floating like the car tray? Maybe its a noise thing. Oh, and the Diff has longer mounting studs.



Here is a shot of the knuckel assy. one Drum the other Disc.



Will start putting the drum system on the white car Sunday.

As I have been repairing and rebuilding worn systems on the Forester .I have had a hard time pulling the wheel hub from the knuckel. Its hard to hold on to push out the hub. So I came up with this puller. I used it on one and it worked just fine. I used a vice to hold it but you could leave it on the car to start with ? This also requires and full new bearing and seals. I welded to nuts together and found a 5 1/2" bold. Then just screw the puller to the bolt with the welded nuts. All done! Oh, and a heavy washer.

I know,old school ! But it works.

Alittle more work. Pushed all the bearings and seals. Front and rear. Installed the left rear knuckel and finished cleaning up the and painting the brake caliper. Also installed the front knuckels on the lower arm's.

The Forester has front KYB's ( seem to be OK ?) and maybe stock rears that are leaking oil. So what do you think? Get a set of KYB's or ??

And, I have tried the rear GC8 Sti. sway bar. It goes on but just seem to low think it would need shorter mounts? Build mounts?

And what about exhaust? Just get a down pipe and fab the rest ? Get a chepo china Impreza Turbo back and cut it up to fit? I'm thinking that is the way to go? Anybody try using a Impreza in a Forester?

It's my install stand! Having a lift,I will use this stand to install from the bottom. I made the stand 24" tall so I could work from the bottom. I can put it on my roller platform. Think it will help with other repairs.







So what do you think?

Here it is on the kart. Will install with arm's off. Need to know how far down they will droop and then build supports for them. And I added some struts,it was moving around a little!

Also needed to twist the rollbar to the front to help clear the stand. Needed to be able to get to the mounting bolts on the front .

Back working on the black chassis. Had to push and pull some stuff back into shape. I'm with in a 1/8" so it should be good.

Started fitting other parts like the Rad but will need a replacment condenser. Got pushed hard by the center sopport. All the front plastic is all bent up!

You just have to LOVE SUBARU! The Rad is from my 94 Impreza Sti.and the barckets,all just bolts in!:woohoo:









The white part is to help with the new tube bumper build. But I will leave that till the the car is wired and motor is running.

Built some brackets and did some test fitting. Looks like I need to get the harness in first! Lots of things in the way. Removed the sound pad at the dash. 13 Lbs. I will just fly with that out.







Also started thinking about the cage. More things in the way!

Installed the harness. Now will work out the "BIG" bugs! Under the hood when as planed but under the Dash! Not so good. Under the hood it almost looks stock. Looked into running the wires under the hood. Went back to the Subaru way (fender well) . Felt that their was just not any room.









And a pile of wire!

From what I've read, it is hard to beat Subaru Extra S in the transmission. The Super Store sells it for something like $8/qt, bring your own container as it is bulk packed. Any of the 5w40 synthetic oils would be great here in AZ (Rotella T6, Mobil 1 turbo diesel truck, the synthetic Chevron Delo).

Thanks for the story & pics,
Doug

Getting the wires to fit is turning into a big pain !

More on this later.
